The amazing thing about human development, to me, is the speed at which it all happens! It’s so crazy. Once neuronal processes start coming online, it’s like a firestorm with one after the next…mobility, communication (verbal and non-verbal), emotions, awareness, etc. Our brains are so intricately connected that it makes sense that when one neural substrate is mature and begins to mediate behavior, that others will closely follow! This weekend was a prime example of that! Ready for it??? First spoken word and first non-verbal communication! Two HUGE developmental milestones!!! I am so so so proud of you my little love!!!
You said your first spoken word and it really isn’t surprising what it is at all…”dog” which you pronounce “doh!” Hahaha, it’s so cute!! I love hearing you say it!! Your daddy and I have been trying to get it on video but you do not perform on command haha.
And here’s a little video of you and Nelli 🙂
And of course, the second developmental milestone…..POINTING!!!!!!!!!!!!!! This is my favorite trick of yours to date!!! You are so darn proud of yourself for learning how to position your fingers just right and point at things! You love to point at your nose and my nose and the “doh!” and everything! It’s truly fascinating to see you develop these skills and then put them into action!
LOVE it and LOVE you!!!!!!!!!!!!!
