On a lighter note than the barfy illness… Alex is doing a lot of talking now, and is starting to understand a lot of words. He is also imitating us more and more. As we were playing upstairs earlier on, I put my hands over my eyes to play peek-a-boo, and he immediately put his hands over his eyes! Very cool. I think the imitating is also helping him pick up the words more quickly.

Words he really knows the meaning of, and can say and point out:

  • Bye!
  • Ba (ball)
  • Nana (banana)

Words he can say, but hasn’t really completely connected with the real world thing:

  • Mama
  • Dada

Words he knows the meaning of, and can point out, but not yet say:

  • Nose
  • Mouth
  • Ear
  • Foot
  • Head
  • Tummy
