Mommy is NOT an elephant!

Mateo can now imitate Luca, the dog. Which has its pros and cons. First, it’s very good because he can now understand that different objects "say" different things...(i.e. cars say vroom, cats say meow, and Mommy says "I need a drink".) I don’t really know why this is important but apparantly, according to developmental checklists, it’s essential to his future to know that the cow says "moo." Anyway, now when asked what Luca says, he can make a very high-pitched squealing noise, indeed, imitating Luca (being put in her crate when we are leaving the house). The downfall to this developmental milestone, he can make a very high-pitched squealing noise imitating Luca, for hours at a time, everytime he looks at her.

Mateo has also added 3 more sounds to his vocabulary of animals. He can say "raah" for lion, "ah, ah, ah" for monkey, and make an elephant sound. I’m a little concerned though, cause I asked him "what does mommy say?" the other day and he made the elephant sound. That was just a fluke, right?

Hmmm. What do you and elephants have in common? It's amazing where the minds of children can go to come up with these ideas!!!

haha, this is great :) Hey if you're interested I would love to steal you away from the kid and the husband and the dog, and we can go to the providence open market one weekend.... lots of indie/DIY type goodies. Not for a couple months, it's every weekend in June. i promise i won't ask you to play cars if you go :)

my wife has a similar blog on xanga, but hers has limited subscription or i'd suggest you read hers too. she's been blogging about mothering, being crunchy, knitting pants and hats for baby...etc. plus loads of daily items and photos. kids have a strange understanding of things. before asa called spider webs 'ewwies', which is the same he uses for dust bunnies on hard wood floors, he called them 'fff'. yeah. i dont' know where that came from. i vote fluke.
