James - We've been doing more cooking together this month because you are so curious about what goes on on top of the counter. You've also taken to waving goodbye to objects/people when leaving the room, etc. Bye-bye tree, bye-bye book, bye-bye Daddy, bye-bye car. Also your animal noises are really coming out well. You know how to do the monkey, elephant, hamster, penguin*, giraffe*, sheep and are working on the moose. (*completely made up by my knowledge of the animal not necessarily a sound) You can also easily point to all facial features and some body parts. You know exactly what we are saying despite your 5 word vocabulary - da! (yes), eh eh (no), Dada, Mama, uh oh!. Da is a recent addition this past week.
The oven just beeped, and our house smells delicious. Once it cools we'll dig in for our mid-morning snack/second breakfast (necessary when breakfast is upon waking at 6am).
