so I didn’t really let him play with it. I just layed down on my back and held the camera for him. I let the camera select the focus points and then just let him play with the buttons. He loved it – he loves buttons. Especially when they do something.
I think my camera’s auto focus may be better than I am. I had to clean my lens after this – he put his grubbly little fingers all over it.
He is officially 16 months and he is such a sweet cuddly boy. He give loves all the time and even says “ahh” while he is hugging you and patting your back. The best though, is when he give you a kiss when you didn’t even ask for one. He has 3 molars now and is working on the 4th. He has been a much better sport about the molar teething then he was about the bottom front teeth, it just makes him want to chew on things. Tonight I was washing his face with a warm wash cloth and he decided that it would be a good thing to chew on – only he bit my finger too.
I started writing down his words and I am up to almost 50. He talks non-stop. Most of it I don’t understand but every once in a while in the middle of a sentence I will recognize a word. Usually “bubbles” or “truck” which are two of his favorite things. He calls everyone he loves “Mama”. Me, Myles, my mom, and himself. If you ask him “What is your name?” he points to his chest and says “Mama!”. But if you ask him “where is Daddy?” or “Where is Grandma?” he can point to the right person – even in a photograph. Now when he sees something the wants and he doesn’t know what it’s called he points and goes “eh, eh, eh, eh, eh” it’s really driving me crazy so I have been trying to teach him the ASL sign for “want” but it’s not working. So I have switched to trying to get him to just point and say “please” (he signs it and says “peas”) but now he just points and says “eh, eh, eh, eh, eh” until I pick up the thing he wants and then he says “please” which I guess is some what of an improvement. If I can’t figure out what he wants I just start saying “eh, eh, eh, eh, eh” right along with him. The first time I did it he just looked at me like “What’s wrong with you?”. He is so good at communication that I think it really frustrates him when he doesn’t have a word or a sign for what he wants to say. This morning he signed “eat, eat” to me and I said “ok what do you want to eat?” and he signed “banana”. It’s like we have whole conversations now but they are a mixture of sign language and the words he does have. He is picking up new words and signs every day but I still think it will be awhile before he can describe what he see on a shelf or the counter and ask me if he can “please” play with it. In the mean time we are both learning to be more patient.Portfolio | Contact Me | Book a Session
