Transference

First clear evidence that Leo has grown himself to be psychologically seperate from the world, not within it.
He was sitting on my lap, with me readinga Poppy-cat book to him. On the page with Poppycat sitting on the lap of a “parent cat”, he pointed at them and said ‘Daddy’ and ‘Leo’. The key is that he then repeated himself, pointing at me and then himself. So, he recognises a representation of a relationship as separate from the relationship itself.
Usually occurs at 20-22 months, so he’s getting on well!
