Panda Corner: Verbal Leaps and Bounds

Because I'm terrible about keeping up with my Kung Fu Panda's baby book, I thought I'd make note of some recent achievements, so I remember when they happened.

Yesterday, on the phone, he told his grandma, "I love you" in response to her saying the same to him. I told her that he hasn't even said that to me or his daddy, The Gryphon, yet. My mom was thrilled.

He's constantly amazing me by making connections and saying things. Yesterday, while we were walking upstairs together for a diaper change (he can walk up and crawl down the steps with supervision), I told him we had seven steps left. I counted, "One..." And then he said, "Two." I was so thrilled that I praised him profusely. But he wouldn't count any of the rest of the numbers, just kept saying "Two" again and again.

Small steps, right?

When I was little,
I would count the milk trucks when we drove past the dairy.
I would say, "Milk truck, milk truck, milk truck, milk truck, milk truck..."
and when we passed them all, I'd say,
"Two milk truck!"
I think at that stage,
the mind only understands "one" and "more than one"

Very possibly! I also think that he likes to repeat things that get him a reaction. :)

It sure did! She told me to write it in his baby book, which is why I figured I ought to record it somewhere. That way, when I do pick up the baby book again, I've got the information.
