Forrest is totally into his magnatiles these days. Most of the time he makes cubes and pyramids and shows them off, each accomplishment as exciting as the first time he made one. And sometimes he builds very tall buildings like this one! With the main purpose of knocking them down of course!
Forrest has been making some cute discoveries recently (unrelated to this photo). As people say, it is an amazing age because he notices all these things and can actually talk about them!
We were at a friend's house where there's a grey cat with white feet. Forrest was watching it and he said, mommy is the cat wearing socks? Little did he know the cat's name is Boots but no one had told him that he saw the socks all on his own.
Another major discovery has been his own shadow! He figured out it was moving when he moved and he had some fun making it do silly things.

Forrest completely despises going to the doctor and dentist. If he even hears the word doctor in someone's conversation he starts to protest. And he predictably screamed through his first dentist appointment this month. (Conveniently that is actually not a bad way to get a look at his teeth.) Fascinatingly, he does like to play doctor and has been practicing checking Little Monkey's teeth. Which I guess must be his way of processing it all - very smart!
We haven't had that much snow this winter (knock on wood) but we have gotten out in it a little. Forrest is obsessed with eating snow. Not the ideal activity for a semi potty trained little guy in many layers of pants. He has had fun sledding. And he even got to try some skiing!
We're happy to report that Forrest now has a couple of activities he enjoys that involve sitting down! He's more and more into reading books, especially ones about Thomas. And he loves a good cup of tea. That's citrus tea that he mostly just stirs and sips with a tiny spoon. Of course he doesn't sit and do these for long but it's nice while it lasts!

Forrest got his first bike! A balance bike of course. He took it for a slow ride to the park and back for its maiden voyage. He also did some work on it, you know, whatever you do with a wrench. I hope by the time he's biking to school by himself all the streets of Cambridge will have dedicated bike lanes!

Forrest became obsessed with boating on this trip to New Hampshire, specifically with a certain kayak paddle. Which meant anytime he was in the boat, we couldn't really go anywhere (until we found another paddle). Lotus was not so enthusiastic about the boating but she preferred that to being left behind on shore.
