Yesterday he was demanding from his high chair that I put ham and then avocado on his tray. He was saying firmly and loudly “Aca, aca!” while pointing at his tray and then said “ Aca! Me, me!” I’m actually not sure if that was “me, me” or if it was “meemee” which is what the little kids at the sitters call him since they can’t seem to say “jimmy”. I was pretty impressed with him! But I had to remind him not to talk to me that way…even if he was using new words appropriately!
It seems like books might become more appealing to Jimmy soon. Up to this point books where just things to throw around and pages to turn or rip and forget sitting still long enough to actually be read to. Over the weekend Jimmy found a one page ad for a hardware store and carried it around awhile. I noticed him sitting in the chair a couple of times poring over the pictures. Then last night he found it again and stood and looked at it for a long time and then flipped it over and looked at the other side. So I got a book out for him and he looked through it several times but then ended up throwing it. Maybe we’re finally getting to a place where he’ll enjoy having books read to him and looking at the pictures. I think I’ll start bringing them out a little more often and see what he thinks.
