Week 24

Things are falling behind here. This week's post was delayed for another bout of Paul getting ill. He'll need to remember to avoid being sick more often. Nathan got to see more of his dad, but sadly had to stay away -- to avoid to spreading the germs around much.

Mom and dad enjoy entertaining Nathan with jokes, gestures, and funny sounds. Nathan currently doesn't require a subtle punchline and careful setup for a joke. He is happy with a head bob and an explanation on how to say 'Zed' in the USA. Blowing on his stomach can also work. On and off he'll laugh at bouncing or swinging around but each day it is different.

He also spends time talking to some of his toys. Hard to say whether he is asking them where they've been and how they are doing or whether he is telling them not to leave without his permission. He can spend a pretty good amount of time focused in on the toy, inspecting it and talking to it.
