*Follows some instructions, such as: "Come here". "Brush your teeth". "Stop". "No sir". "Give Victor hugs".
*Unfortunately, you have also started hitting our face when you are not happy, this is a big NO-NO!

*Discovered the art of flushing toilets!
*When at a public restroom you have discovered that you can crouch and peek underneath to the next stall. Do not be a 'Peeping Tom'!

Some First for the month, not always good...
*Scratched a kid across the face in the nursery. It was over a toy that you wanted.
*I cut your hair for the first time! You did so well. I was nervous about doing it; but you sat still for me on 3 separate occasions...yes I had to redo some areas just because I had to be a perfectionist! You will thank me later!
*Climbed out of pack and play and into our bed.
