he says, "mama" now.
he is pretty much all i can talk about after therapy sessions.
i tried to share my excitement with a neighbor who has older kids, she politely smiled and scooted off. i tried to share my excitement with my husband and he so kindly gave alexander a big squeeze and that was it. as you can see i can be incredibly boring when it comes to my excitement over alexander's language development, so that is what you are here for.
at therapy this week we took pictures to make an experience book.
this book will have simple, repetitive words.
"pour, pour, pour. pour the water."
"mix, mix, mix. mix the bubbles."
"wash, wash, wash. wash the cow "(or duck, etc)
"pat, pat pat. pat the cow dry."
the possibilities are endless, but consistent and simple.
once he gets it i can begin to elaborate on each picture.
after we finished the activity
i was able to capture this adorable video of alexander
babbling about the animals.
so cute, wouldn't you agree?
i especially love the part when he turns to tell his therapist that he is talking about the "moo" (cow).
doesn't my voice get annoying?
more language the better.
i am ambitious like that.
