Bonafide Little Person
This something, as a first time parent, is something I just didn’t expect. I’m guessing a lot of other first time parents don’t expect it either? Or maybe other parents are just smarter then me? Either way, here’s what has happened:
Little MPB has become a bonafide little person.
He mimics everything we say. He mimics everything we do. He talks about everything. He follows simple instructions. He also selectively ignores simple instructions at times. He moves furniture/toys to places he wants them. He paraphrases books. He asks for things he wants. He tells us what he wants for dinner. He describes what he’s doing or wants to do. He tells us what his toys are doing, as in imaginative play.
He’s done a lot of these things independently for a while. But it’s like something has clicked and he just does these things, all the time. It’s just his normal behavior.
Sure he still gets some words confused – like he says out, when he means out, up or down (as in, let me out of being on the ground or out of your arms). So he clearly still has a few more things to learn in life. But, he’s figuring it all out, and he’s doing all this significant learning right NOW.
I’m not sure what light-bulbs went off in his head, or why everything has started to come together so well right now, but it’s fascinating!
It’s truly the most amazing growth in development I’ve seen so far in my short mommy life. Sure learning to roll over and walking were neat development milestones. But something about this cognitive development has been exceptionally fascinating to me. I cannot lie, it’s exciting to watch!
And, it reminds me just how lucky I am to be Little MPB’s mom. Nothing makes me happier then seeing him learn and explore the world.
