Which got me thinking... Lately when I ask Robbie to identify things or mimic sounds or motions, he surprises me by following my commands. So I decided to try a little experiment during lunch.
Me: "Robbie, close your eyes... like this!" (Me closing my eyes.)
Robbie - CLOSES HIS EYES! And we repeated this command and performance several times, just in case it was a fluke. He seems to recognize the command now even when I don't close my own eyes to prompt him.
Me: "Robbie, where's your hair?"
Robbie - touches his hair (with peas-and-carrots-fingers, lovely lunchtime idea mommy!)
I also think it's amazing that he locates the following things for me when I ask him where they are, either by pointing or just gazing at them: trees, balloon, birds, diaper, socks, toes, tongue, nose, juice, baba, winnie the pooh, blankie, paci, video (when we get in the van for a long-ish ride!), duckie and bath.
Aren't one year olds amazing!?
