Yo Gabba Gabba
Yet another birthday present... Our family really knows what JT likes!
My aunt and uncle bought JT a set of the 5 Yo Gabba Gabba characters. For those who don't know:
-Muno is the red guy with the two teeth
-Foofa is the pink one with the flower on her head
-Toodee is the blue cat
-Brobee is the green striped one
-Plex is the yellow robot
He opened the package, and was SO excited. He named all of them, and hasn't put them down in 24 hours. He even SLEPT with them!
The best part is when he sets them up, he says their names as he puts them down! Then he says "Yo Gabba Gabba!" (just like DJ Lance does at the beginning of the show). It is SUPER cute.
As a side note: My mom bought him a Toy Story shirt that we got on Thursday. JT pulled it out of the box, put it on OVER his long sleeved shirt he had on (the new one was long-sleeved as well) and refused to take it off.
Such a funny guy!!!
He has been wonderful this weekend. Last night he woke up at midnight (he had those hard plastic Yo Gabba Gabba figures in his bed, and rolled over on them). He only wakes up 1x/month, so I can't really complain... he slept in a tiny bit this morning, but not enough to make up for his 2 hours of awake time. He'll be in bed by 7pm tonight (funny... a year ago it was 11pm - haha! - he can't stay up past 8:30 now!).
Fits are still decreasing in number and intensity, he's got the echolalia going on BIG TIME - but that's absolutely wonderful. He uses the words appropriately after he learns them, so he's processing the meaning while he repeats. We're in the next stage of speech!!! He's always making noise - talking or making happy/loud coo noises. And to think there was a time when I wondered if I would ever hear his little voice!
