Tot School - 16 Months
H has really been interested in drawing lately. He uses markers and says "dot dot dot" as he makes dots and something else (currently unintelligible) when he makes lines and zig-zags.
We also read a lot of books, do matching/sorting by shapes and colors, and talk as we're playing with his toys. H is saying more words almost every day including ones that have multiple sounds like 'diaper' and harder starting sounds like 'c' and 't'. We've been working on letters and he's mastered 'O', 'A', 'M', 'B', and 'P'. Baby H also likes walking around the house (or outside) with me and pointing to things as I name them. Then I ask him where something is and he points to it. When the twins were 18 months old, we'd look through pictures in books and workbooks and I'd ask them questions that they would answer by pointing at the correct objects, which was lots of fun - I think that's coming soon with H as well.
