I thought I'd write down some of the things that Finn has been doing lately. He doesn't say many words (which I'm kind of worried about). But here are some of the words/sounds that he does/has rambled off: ball, moon, dada, mama, up, slug, book, baby, Eddie, Emma, cow, moo, quack, snort, hssss, hop, baaa, and ah-o. Yeah, not much. I'm still waiting for the day that he's just going to let it all out. Does anyone else's kid not say much? He knows a lot of signs, which I thought might be hindering his speech, but they say that it doesn't. Signs that he knows are: up, down, all done, more, drink, food, hungry, peas, blueberries, popcorn, chips, chocolate, caterpillar, poop, potty, please, and thank you.
If you ask him if he has a joke to tell you, he'll start laughing. It's pretty cute! He's very coordinated and will balance on the cement strip that goes around the wood chips at the playground. Speaking of playground... I asked him if he wanted to go to the playground the other day and he started jumping up and down (I guess that means yes). I said, "go get your hat and coat." He ran into the other room and got them and was already headed out the door. He's pretty good at following directions too.
My parents went to Yuma, AZ this last weekend to visit my grandparents that live down there during the winters. They brought Finn back a bubble gun that he thinks is soooo cool! It makes sounds and lights up. Plus you don't have to get light-headed from blowing bubbles.
