Babbling to Talking

    Dinsour He produces sentences “I need more”, “I need that”, etc.  He sometimes adds more words like “I need that dinosaur” or replaces “this” or “that” such as “I need dinosaur”.  If he hurts something he says “toes hurt” or “leg hurt”.  He’s great at initiating play and his imagination runs wild – he’ll pretend to roar and play chase.  He’ll also say phrases such as “water RUN!!”.  He’ll say “Let’s play”, “Let’s paint”, etc.  He tells us “I like it” and “I love it”.  He initiates songs by himself such as “5 Little Dinosaurs Jumping on the Bed” and if he wants you to sing one he’ll say a line such as “EIEIO”.  He sings lines such as “baa baa here”.

    Eating sweets Roman got a visit from Uncle Dan this week and ate a ton of sweets.  He has been better about sharing at the playspace – was even sharing his dinosaur fossils.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                            

    Our table During the weekend, he joined us for our first Communiversity table where he blew bubbles, ate cotton candy (second time ever!), munched on popcorn, and lots more!  He also got to walk around campus with Anneanne and see all the blossoms.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                            

    Roman watching a movieHe hit a huge milestone – his first movie ever!  We went to see Zootopia.  He watched the movie in his own big boy seat that reclines and ate popcorn like a champ!  He was a natural!  He tried to run up the stairs once, but that was all the way at the end of the movie.  We also got to visit the Queens Zoo where he loved the birds and farm animals.  This was of course followed by some ice cream.  We also celebrated his friend Asher’s birthday at Bounce U.  He was slightly afraid to go in the bouncy castles, but mommy went in with him!

    Model in clothing line We tried Little Zookeepers again this week and he LOVED it.  He said “WOW!”  and repeated what the instructor Travis was saying about the animal such as “white teeth”.  He still said “I touch it”, but waited his turn very well.  He brings his bucket of dinosaurs everywhere – even runs with them in the playground and brings them on the swing!  He talks to them in the car and said “dinosaur teeth”, “bite”, etc.  Roman also continues to be our Gift of Gab model – check out our Gift of Gab store for the latest in our clothing line!
