13 Things MetaBaby's Learned

MetaBaby is growing up so fast. It's so exciting for us to watch his learn new things. He doesn't have any real words, though he does start to whine "mamamamamamama" if I don't pick him up from his nap in a timely manner. We've been signing with him, but the only sign he has a firm grasp of is "more"...probably because it gets him more food. That said, you can tell that he understands more than he's letting on.

For example:
  1. When we ask "do you want some O's (i.e., Cheerios)," he grabs his bowl and walks to the cereal cupboard.
  2. After I pour said O's, he runs to the living room because that's where he's allowed to eat them.
  3. When we open the refrigerator, he runs over, pushes us out of the way and reaches in to grab the mustard.
  4. When we ask "do you want some more water," he walks to the refrigerator and stares up at the water spout.
  5. When we say "would you like some yogurt," he walks to the refrigerator and tries to open it.
  6. When we open the refrigerator, he runs over, pushes us out of the way and reaches in to grab the metal tube of chile paste.
  7. When we ask "where's your tummy," he pats his tummy.
  8. When we ask "where's your ear," he pats his ear.
  9. When we ask "where's your nose," he pats his ear.
  10. When we ask "where's your daddy's nose," he honks MetaDaddy's nose.
  11. When we say "are you hungry," he signs "more."
  12. When we say "do you want more," he signs "more."
  13. When we say "give me a hug," he runs towards us, arms extended!

MetaBaby is a GENIUS! Our little guy does most of these too. Each week we work on a new body part. It's amazing how fast they are learning now, isn't it? We are doing signing too. His all-time favorite is "milk" to MetaBaby's "More". :)
