Word Games

I just realized I hadn't added to the record of the words Sean knows recently, so here are all the new ones I can think of that he has picked up since the last update:

Door, Clock, Eye, Diaper, Bird, Dog, Bear, Cup, Fan, Mango, Stop, Go, No, and Bob (in reference to Bob the Builder).

"Apple" is still king, but "Stop" and "Go" are getting a lot of use lately too. We play lots of games where we run around together, or dance, or I push him fast in the shopping cart, and he tells us to "Stop" and "Go". It's so cute. I think he likes that he has control over the game. It really plays into his recent attempts to be more independent and assert more control over his day-to-day stuff. He has been using a big-boy fork lately. (One of our smaller forks. those are the salad forks, right?) He's also going up and down the stairs by himself, getting on and off the furniture alone, and just generally doing his own thing. I love to see what he will do when left to his own devices. Just the other day he climbed up onto the kitchen table to drive his toy trucks around up there. Why that was better than the floor, I'll never know, but it was very sweet.
