Our family always had a dust buster growing up - but I have now found that this is my favorite item in the house right now.
Alex has added cracker and berry (as in blue berry) to his signing vocabulary - we are now up to about 15 words and he can really communicate with us.
He is OBSESSED with books. Especially his Diego book. These books aren't baby board books - these are regular books for 4-6 year olds. And we have to read it over and over and over and over and over and over and over and (do you get the point!). We are going to have our hands full with him. He is SO smart.
Example - we were on the way home from Columbus yesterday. He was looking at one of his books. He then started signing horse. I didn't think there were any horses in the book, so I looked - and sure enough - up in the corner were three little horses. NOTHING gets past this kid.
He found a little bottle of shampoo (from one of my business trips - you know - the stuff that is in your hotel room). I don't know how he knows it is shampoo, but he's been carrying it around, pretending to pour it in his hand and then he rubs his head - it's hilarious!!I leave you with some cuteness.
