Christian News
Christian turned 17 months on the tenth of February 2001. He is tall enough
that he can easily grab things off the tables and counters. His favorite passion is turning on the
TV and VCR, picking up the phone, and dialing the operator. He loves to open cabinets
and drawers that he is not supposed to get into. He loves to be chased and
can climb furniture with ease. He will often run with something he is not supposed to have.
He will go to the refrigerator door when he wants a drink. His favorite word is "dada".
He also can say "cat cat" and "dog dog" and will point out these animals in a book.
He loves to "read."

Dec.26th, 2000 we went to the Train Station Science Center, in Kansas City, Mo.

Christmas eve and Christmas Day, 2000. Christian got "A bear as big as you are."
