Finn is officially thirteen months old today! Just in the last week, he's hit a few more milestones. For instance, he now says "Mama" directly to me, quite frequently. It's unspeakably rad!
He is also very interested in some new characters in his story books. He is fascinated with the yak in our animal alphabet book, and wants to skip right from "Ape" to "Yak" so he can say "Yak" & "Moooooo". We also have a book where the main character turns into a big bug who is slurping some kind of goo, and Finn *loves* to skip to the bug page and make slurpy noises. Oh, and his current favorite book is a hilarious one called "Don't Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus!"--we must read it at least 3 times a day.
[Oh yes, and Finno and I love to play "Sproingy Doorstopper." First we party on the actual sproingy doorstopper, making it waggle & chatter. Then I stick out one index finger, pull it back with the other, and then make it go all sproingy doorstopper, complete with surprisingly good sound effects. Finn is fascinated. --J.]
