Now that I am 18 months old, I have to let you know what I am doing. I still like to read. In fact, looking at books and being read to is my second all time favorite thing. My first favorite thing is listening to Music, and especially Barney's Greatest Hits CD. I am learning al the songs and actions for each song. I know Itsy Bitsy Spider, Wheels on the Bus, Pop Goes the Weasel and Do your ears hang low? I was impressed today that my Mommy's friend knows all of those songs too. Her boys taught them to her when they were small. Now they are tall. But they have a guinea pig, so they are cool fellas.
In the eating department, I am working on controlling my spoon and cup. That means that I am learning to set them down nicely on the table and pick then up nicely and put them to my mouth, and then set them down nicely. So how is it going? Well, I am getting really good with my straw cup. And I am getting really good at controlling an empty spoon outside of mealtime. During meal time, I don't control my spoon very well. But I think I am making progress.
As far as signing goes. I am rather awesome. I sign a lot of things that matter, and don't bother with needless words. I can sign Daddy correctly now. I no longer sign bye bye for Daddy. I don't sign Mommy, but I say Momma. And I say it with gusto when I really need to get her cooperating with my plans.
I am getting my picture taken professionally this week. We will see if I cooperate or not. I have not decided.
Oh, and one more thing. I think the perfect Sunday afternoon is spent at Grandma and Grandpa B's house playing with my cousins (ages 5 and 6). They are so nice and I love to try to get their toys which are for big kids. I just adore my cousins!
Well, I am supposed to be asleep, so I better quit typing so that Mommy doesn't catch me still up after she put me to bed. Take care. Love, Olivia
