The little guy has started reading. Yep, he is just under 15 months old, but he takes a book, sits down (or during a diaper change), and reads it out loud.
Ok, ok, he does not know what he is doing. And he does not say actual words. But he is “reading” out loud, just like we do to him. It is the cutest thing ever because he is just going “blah, bli, xcai, plio” on and on, and he is therefore reading in his mind – and this to him, is satisfying.
It does make you think: is this what it sounds like when we talk to him, assuming he only knows a few of the words we are saying? For example, if I say, “little guy, you’ve gotta eat your dinner so you are not hungry later, ok?” He probably understands, “little guy, you blah eat you blah you blah not blah blah, ok?” Fascinating how we learn, isn’t it? 🙂
