Busy, busy, busy! Gideon is more active than ever before, and in every area one can be active in. He not only moves nonstop, but he is learning and soaking things in like crazy. Every day he begins using a new sign, or a new word. I wouldn’t be surprised if he has a 40 – 50 word vocabulary with sign alone. I have noticed though, that he has slowed down learning signs, and is more intentional about being verbal. Gideon is obsessed with learning names of objects, and uses words or approximations of words consistently. He is also obsessed with poop and pee. I’m thinking he is ready to be introduced to potty learning. We’ll see how this goes. For now, we are honing in on modeling and describing things to him, so he can become familiar with the process. More on that later. Picture time!
One of my favorite things to do with Gideon is going to the grocery store. It’s such a great opportunity to encourage language development by naming all the produce, the meats, and using adjectives (heavy, cold, wet, etc.).
An oldie but goodie that I stole off of Daniel’s iPod.
I’ve had a sore throat and aches and pains all day. Daniel has been wonderful and let me take it easy. He even made dinner and did kitchen clean up! I hope today’s restful day will help me feel better tomorrow.
