I really don't want to be one of those people who posts inane, braggy stuff about my kid on the internet. But my 18-month-old just ate a carrot stick, picked up a napkin off the table and wiped his mouth, went over to the garbage and held up the napkin for permission, and when I said it was ok he threw it away (normally the garbage is off-limits). This is a kid who was just evaluated three months ago and found to be delayed in almost every category, so seeing him doing such grown-up stuff is so reassuring.

Now he's fighting with the dog over who gets to sit on a flattened cardboard box. :/
