Alex’s note from daycare today:
Alex is really liking putting on his socks and shoes by himself. He is getting more and more independent every day. > >
I guess independent _is one word for it. Some days, we’d probably use the phrase _strong-willed instead.
I haven’t seen him get his shoes on by himself yet, but he does often try to put his socks on himself at home. It’s not always fast, and it usually takes a few tries, but it clearly makes him happy.
