Say Please!

Seth already has a few words that come out regularly - his favorite of which is "ball." Also in his repertoire are: up, daddy, mommy, doggie, uh-oh, Keith (his cousin's name), gall gone (all gone), yum yum, and arf-arf (he calls our dog this a lot). Last night, however, he added a new one that just thrilled us to pieces. "Peas!" he said, as he pointed up at his diaper bag, which he knew was filled with snacks just for him.

Even though we'd been battling with him all day to eat good food instead of snack-food, we couldn't pass up the opportunity to encourage the word, so we gave in and allowed him a few apple-cinnamon rice cakes, and after those were gone, a few animal cookies.

Although the "L" was left out, it was obvious what he was saying, and the fact that he said it in the right context without being prompted was even more gratifying. It seems like he's picking up new things every day. It's so exciting!

Also, his "pretend" skills are expanding. Yesterday in the nursery at church, he was carrying around a plastic hot dog. I told him to go put it in the microwave and he walked over to the little kitchen they have, opened the microwave door, and even pushed some buttons after closing the door. He knew what to do and did so without us showing him how. I was a little surprised he got the microwave right - seeing that the kitchen has a cabinet, a fridge, several lower cabinets, a sink, and a counter in addition to the microwave. Guess our little guy knows his way around the kitchen!
