Sometimes you can be a bit too clever!!! On Tuesday I told Noah he could have some grapes once he had finished his butty… He said all gone so I asked him to show me his hands. He lifted one up so I then said and the other one… He then put the raised hand down (switched the butty) and put the other hand up (now empty!) I then said both hands together so he shoved the rest of his butty in his mouth and showed both hands! That is way too clever for a 21 month old. In fact I’m sure something like that wouldn’t cross Caitlin’s mind even now.
Aside from devious clever Noah is actually quite bright in a general sense, he is making little sentences sometimes of 4 or 5 words and tonight while waiting to get in the bath he counted to 8 with no prompting!! We also have an animal book which he knows about half of the 100 in there and it covers all kinds of weird animals like meercats, eagle, goose, cow etc which he can say and point at. There are also a few which he doesn’t name himself but will point to if you say like crab, ant, mouse. He also recognises the letters a and b.
He copies absolutely everything Caitlin says and does I’m sure this is what is spurring him on! Very soon they will be at the same stage!
