Can you guess what this is?
That's what Lando thinks this is. He was so excited to see a picture of a horse that he got a smidge confused. His brother still has trouble with them sometimes. He was also very excited to see a picture of his aunt this morning. Evidently she's busy with school so we don't see her as often anymore.
" Te-Te" is her name according to him.
It's fun to watch and listen to him learning to speak. So much easier to communicate. When his brother was this age (and younger) he wanted to communicate SO badly. We taught him a few signs in ASL and it helped a lot. The little brother never really felt the need to learn sign and we didn't push it so he's made do with speaking (or grunting). Some of the things he says now are: Pi-Pi (pickles) Talta (salsa) Dog, Tity (kitty) Tow (cow) NahNah (his cousin) NoNo, Up! (he's very enthusiastic about that one) Don! (gone- which is important to know for food as well as people) Bok (blocks) Ticken (chicken) BarnBarn (Barney) Book, WaWa (drink- doesn't have to be water) Doc! (from the movie CARS) MayMay (Mater- also from the movie) Talty (Salty from Thomas the Train) Teddy (which is what he calls Chubby his bear and is the name of his brother's bear) Dood (good) Litis (delicious) Trown (crayon)
He is much more fun to communicate with now.
In other news: His older brother is learning to write his name. Good thing it's short. He loves learning the letters of the alphabet and how to draw them by himself. He's known the letters for quite a while and can associate them with different people like "O" is for Oma. He can also write Mom and Dad. Mom is easy it's "UpDownUpDownUpDownUpDownUpDown- circle-UpDownUpDownUpDownUpDownUpDown"
He likes UpDown letters. M, N, W, A (that one is "UpDown Tross it)
