I work with Drew everyday on words, sounds, colors...everything. I make a game out of feeding time or bath time anything to teach him something, but he just looks at me like I'm a fool. I ask him to repeat a word or point to something and he gets this look of confusion on his face. Well last night Kathy from Parent's As Teachers visited us. She showed him pictures of things, told him what they were and asked him to repeat the word....he did! WHAT!....well at least now I know he can!

Drew's has been picking up new words faster lately. He can say dog, dad, that, mom, bye, hi and now BALL. This word...BALL! For some reason and the object it refers to, have become obsessions of my little toddler. At 16 months old, he is crazy about BALLS. That's all he wants to play with and all he wants to say!!!! After hearing the word BALL repeated 37 times in an hour, a person can go slightly cRaZy! Drew, it's time for a new word....PLEASE!
