J-jo is 13.5 months (more or less)
I didn’t take as many photos this week and a lot of what we did can be seen in previous Tot School posts.
I am happy with my J-jo’s aquisition of language. I was always told that boys were slower with language, but so far I would say he is on par with Bear (when she was 13 months). He has a lot of words and communicates things very clearly through signs and gestures.
He “reads” Where is Maisy with us, shaking his head and saying “non” when we lift the flap to see if it is Maisy.
He also can respond to commands, like “Go get a spoon,” or “Rock the baby (doll),” or even “Find the cow” (though he hasn’t done this for all the animals yet).
I’m even impressed with his fine motor skills and his ability to get a spoon or fork into his mouth. Again, I thought these things took a lot longer with boys. And, though he doesn’t show much interest in drawing, he holds the crayon much better than Bear did at his age.
This particular morning J-jo was interested enough to draw for a few minutes.
However, he’d rather climb all over the place than draw.
Pincer Grasp Activities
He loves water play at the sink. I love it because I can cut vegetables next to him.
He is always taking the shoes out of the shoe cubbies. I lined them up for him showing him how the pairs matched.
