I’m sure if you were to hit the category “Mini Me-ester” in the sidebar, it’d only be about oh, EVERY POST in the last year and half that you’d pull up.
In the last few weeks, we’ve had more pointing, but really, I’d say in the last week, it’s really taken off. This has been a huge relief to me, because pointing is such a huge deal milestone. Along with the pointing, everything is “DAT.” As in “give me that object, NOW, woman! No, wait, I want that object instead.” Or he brings us “DAT” in order for us to do something with it. If it’s a snack, we must obey and make the snack accessible. The demanding times are awesome. The tantrums that ensue as a result of him not always getting his way are even more awesome. Really, I’m just happy that he’s communicating.
Another one of his new things is checking under everyone’s clothes for tattoos. He is fascinated by the Meester’s tattoos. If you ask him where someone’s tattoo is, he’ll lift up their sleeves to see. He discovered the Meester’s tattoos on his hips and tried to lift both his Speech and Occupational therapists shirts when they arrived today. While it’s really cute when he does it to us, others find it a little mortifying, and of course knowing how weird we are, they immediately look at us with the inexplicable “what is WRONG with you” look.
So if you ever stop by, just life your shirt and get it over with.
