...but now we have moved on to books.
They are Dylan's newest obsession.
I often wonder why, throughout the day, I continue to clean them up and stack them neatly under our coffee table, because sure enough, the minute I turn my back, they wind up back on the floor scattered all around him.
His favs are books that contain either bunnies (his best new sign) or books with mirrors.
Once he spots a mirror, he'll move in real close, look himself in the eye and smile. "Hey! I know you!".
I absolutely love that Dylan is motivated by books. As I read, "Simple Fist Words: Let's Talk" to him the other day, I realized that he does know ALL of these first words. He may not speak them, but he can sign each and every one. He knows what they are and he understands their meaning. He IS learning! His vocabulary is increasing every day as is his desire to communcate with us. It is such an amazing skill to witness. I am so grateful that he has the motivation to learn and that he has such an interest in gaining knowledge through books.
Cool, cool stuff...
