One of my favorite things about this stage in Ty's development is figuring out what's in his head and listening to his budding vocabulary.
He learned a new word today, as he looked out the window and realized there really wasn't a chair on the outside. He said, "Hey! It's not a chair outside! It's a shadow! And now it's discompeared!" I said, "Yes, it's a reflection, and when you move around, it disappears!" You could just see the wheels cranking as he repeated reflection over and over again, as well as disappear.
Later, we were listening to one of his favorite CD's, Superstar Kids, and I had to smile when I heard him yelling out these words:
- To the song, Sk8er Boi, he sings, "They had a problem cause the baggie was closed" instead of "They had a problem with his baggy clothes."
- To the song Allstar, instead of "Hey now, you're an allstar" he sings, "Hang out, you're an arm spa."
Isn't it such fun to see children start to make sense of their world? I love it!
