I'm Trilled!

Dashy has a few new tricks. They all crack me up, so I thought I'd share.

A couple weeks ago he suddenly began to understand the concept of "under"...














He will now roll something under his dresser and then attempt to fetch it. Unfortunately if it rolls too far (which it usually does, because of our very uneven floors), he doesn't quite get the concept of "around". So he'll let out a shriek of frustration when he can't reach it. If only he understood "around", he would get that if he just crawled to other side of the dresser (where the object inevitably ends up) he could reach it from there. But, alas, not yet.

My son is a bit of a delicate creature. Of course, there's the tooth. (By the way, it's hanging in there! Still crossing fingers, but we're up to 80-90% that it will make it.) So nothing too hard in the mouth for a little while longer. And if he crawls too much without shoes, he gets bruises and rough patches on the tops of his feet. But I think he understands this about himself and has learned to take his own preventative measures.

This is how he crawls on surfaces that hurt his knees...


...and most of the time these days when he's crawling "regular style", he's trilling up a storm!


With all that trilling he's really going to be able to roll those R's when he starts speaking Spanish.

And speaking of Spanish...

Guess what?! He's officially bilingual! (Thanks Patricia!!)

Here's Dashy's latest party trick...

English...


...and Spanish!


And the other day he pointed to water in two places (sprinklers out his window and the drawing of a stream on his toy) and said, "Agua". If I don't hurry up and order Rosetta Stone, he and Patricia are going to have a "secret" language. (Maybe I should be worried, but how cool, right?!)
