Forrest's amazing Christmas present from Grandma Char was the beautiful quilt!! It matches his cousin Diego's quilt and he sleeps under it every night. He really loves it and so do the rest of us!

Me: Forrest, what does daddy sound like when he sleeps?
Forrest: [snore sound]
Me: Forrest, what does grandpa sound like when he drinks water?
Forrest: [satisfied sigh sound]

At this point I will say it's official. Forrest is starting to talk! For a while he's been saying mama (but not specifically in reference to me), no (that one he means) and uh oh. But those are words every kid says early on, not very special. His first interesting word though, is egg. He says it in Chinese (jidan) and it makes sense since he does love scrambled eggs. Other words he has added now include dad (baba), socks (wa), hot, thank you (xiexie), up, and hat (mao). I'm sure he'll be adding many more to the list very soon!
Forrest's latest obsession is the dishwasher. He loves to press the buttons and is constantly running the wash cycle when we turn our backs. We finally realized we should just unplug it altogether. He can still press the buttons but without the lights coming on it's not nearly as fun. Sorry, little guy.
Yeye and Nainai are back! Forrest didn't seem to recognize them from the FaceTime calls but he's quickly gotten to know them again. They pick Forrest up early from daycare and take him to the playground every afternoon, and they are finding more foods he will eat. In theory they give mom and dad a break, but in reality that only works if we leave the house because while we're here he's extra clingy. All part of the adjustment to having extra people around I suppose.
