Ammon is growing up so fast! Every day he surprises us with new intellectual growth. I think for now he's stopped growing physically-thank goodness! Last week Steven was changing Ammon's diaper, and out of nowhere Ammon started tickling Steven and saying in a growly monster voice "tickle tiggle tickle!" He even did that to my pregnant belly in the grocery store! Now he'll run up to us randomly and tickle us and then run away.
I can't believe how many words Ammon understands! Here's a list:
There's so much more but all I can really think about is his sign language. We've taught him a few words: milk, food, drink, i love you. Just those few words has saved our lives and his.
He knows lots of signs to songs we sing:
Speaking of juice, we can't say the word "apple" in our house. Ammon loves his apple juice and apple sauce...apple slices he just spits out but he loves pears and clementines. We usually just spell it out: "Ammon ate all his dinner. Should we give him a-p-p-l-e-s-a-u-c-e?"
Here are words he can say...sorta. At least they are words we can both identify and communicate with.
There's tons of stuff for Ammon to learn and improve on-like waiting 45 seconds for his milk to warm in the microwave-but he's just 15 months! We can't wait to see what new surprises will happen tomorrow!
