We got a workout yesterday, but no it's not what you think...We didn't go to the gym or walk the tract. Our 19 month old great-grandson Dylan and his grandma Sandie came to visit.
Dylan has become quite proficient in babbling. You can say, "what?" to him and he repeats the exact same babble again. His grandma thinks it's Chinese or some other foreign language of some sort...But today when I asked him where the ball went, he threw his arms out to side, with palms up, and said, "I dunno?" It was so cute, and clearly a Kodak moment! His vocabulary consists of mama, dada & Val (for Valerie, his aunt)...and now, his cute posturing and a complete sentence. It was such an exciting moment for me, to hear his first sentence.
This is Dylan and his grandma Sandie. The first thing Dylan does, after he greets us, is to go get the cat's toys. The larger items he carries into the living room one by one.
Dylan in the rocking chair... that's older than his grandma...another of his favorite things to do.
Dylan carries the whole basket of the cat's toys into the living and dumps it out...so he can get a better look at things. One thing that he does before he leaves, is to pick up every single toy and carry the basket back to where he found it...He is very well behaved...and does it with a smile.
Watch kitty cats...here comes Dylan!
He's all over the place...here he's after a small ball that rolled under the table, or perhaps the kitty.
Be careful...Motherkitty gave me that pretty blue vase.
Here's Dylan bouncing on Brandon's big blue ball.
Just give Dylan the cat toys and he's content. Like most 19 month olds, he's curious about everything and loves to chase the cats. Jybow the kitty, thinks it's a game and wanders closer each time, and Dylan is still unable to catch her. The cat seems to like being chased by this little human...but she's never been caught either.
