2: First Baby Bath! | April 1, 2011 | This is Nohea during his first bath! He was a little cranky at first because the water was pretty warm. After a little bit of time in the water he got used to it. He was even crankier when he had to get out.
3: Distinguishing Voices | April 17, 2011 | Aunty Adrianna came over to visit and cradled tiny Nohea. She called his name multiple times, but he didn't move at all. Mommy called his name and he started squirming. Aunty doesn't have good luck with babies it appears

9: First Tooth | Nohea grew his first tooth! He was chewin on everything and now it's here! I just wish he stopped touching it. Then again, I'd be curious too!
10: Today Nohea realized that if he touches something sharp he gets cut. He grabbed broken pieces of light bulb today when he knocked over the lamp. The poor little guy cried for awhile. He had no idea what just happened, but he knows now not to do it again.(7-8) | Cause and Effect
11: Nohea didn't seem to like his Uncle Morgan very much. Nohea met him for the first time today and started crying when his uncle tried to hold him. I think he has a little bit of stranger anxiety. (7-8) | Stranger Anxiety
12: (9-10) Nohea loved playing Peek-a-Boo today. He laughed and giggled every time I appeared. Then he got silent when I disappeared. He's such a cutie.
13: Nohea said mama and dada today! His father and I were so excited. But he loves mommy so much that he said my name first. He's a mama's boy (9-10)
14: (10) Nohea has been crawling well for a few days. Once he starts he doesn't stop. He's quite the traveler if you ask me. His daddy and I are usually chanting "Go Nohea go!"
15: Nohea is now drinking from cups. He acts so grown up. I swear it was just yesterday we had him. Well he's a self efficient cup drinking machine.
16: (12) Nohea grew quite angry today. I never saw him so angry. Actually, before today I never saw him angry. He couldn't get his toy to talk to him anymore and he threw it in frustration.
17: WALKS ALONE Nohea is walking by himself now. He just gets more and more independent everyday. I just hope he can manage to stay out of trouble with his new skill! Today he walked his way to the kitchen and almost pulled off the table cloth.
18: Nohea is picking up and grasping his crayons now. He needs mommy less and less everyday. My little independent man!
19: Nohea just talks and talks. He says so much I bet he already knows about 500 words. Sometimes I think he forgets what he's talking about. He's like mommy!
20: Little Drummer | Little Nohea is becoming defiant. I don't know where he's getting it from. He told me "no" when I told him to stop breaking his crayons. He's becoming a handful.
21: Nohea makes me pictures now! he scribbles all over the paper and hands them to me. They're beautifully abstract. Cute!
22: Parallel Play | Nohea Participates in parallel play. He doesn't exactly interact with the other kids yet. once he warms up to them I have faith that he'll be pretty popular

27: Toddler Situation 2: 2 Year old ready for potty training My child uses his sphincter muscle when he uses the bathroom Two helpful tips I used for training my son were "sinking the cheerio" so he could learn to aim in the toilet and encouraging all his good behaviors.
28: Toddler Situation 3: My 2 year old is having temper tantrums Temper tantrums are emotional outbursts of ill humor when the "higher" cognitive functions are unable to stop the emotional expression of the "lower" functions Nohea started crying and screaming when I told him he couldn't have another cookie Nohea droped to the ground screaming and crying because he was breaking his crayons so they were taken away
29: Toddler situation 4: My 2 year old socially Nohea engages in parallel play, play simple games with others, bosses other kids around, and says "please" when prompted. Time out, cause and effect, how he can get in trouble, spoken direction, firmness and understanding Feeding himself, put his clothes on, zips his jackets, dries himself with towel, combs his hair.
