I get to work to find this on an email from Claire…
1. he has suddenly taken a liking to walking backwards!
2. he put a banana in the kitchen bin, so after telling him ‘no’ I
then tried to explain that things that go in bins are things we want
to say ‘bye bye’ to. He then pointed at the bin and said ‘daddy’!
get down (often followed by Leee-yo)
He has started spinning on the spot till he falls over. He thinks it’s funny, though seems puzzled that recovery takes a moment.
Claire came into the front room; Leo was sitting on the sofa, reading an Elmer book, cool as a cucumber.
By the time i came in, he was standing at the table. Did she make it up? We asked him to climb up again. He did this, then stared at us in puzzlement – what’s the big deal? So, i learnt to do this this morning, and now it’s utterly normal. Where’s my breakfast, anyway?
First time ever, he pulls the plug out of the bath and starts pointing at his towel. We usually have tears to leave the bath. He was very tired and fell asleep almost immediately. Maybe he is learning what feeling tired is, and that he wants to sleep? Inherited from daddy, that.
I’m fairly sure he can count to two.
I was buttoning up his pajamas, after i said ‘one’ on the first, he said ‘toooo’, looked at me and smiled.
He wouldn’t do it again, of course.
