He shoves a slice of pear into his mouth, chews for a few seconds, and out comes the skin.

When he is done eating, he starts sticking food through this little circular opening at the base of his highchair.

If he’s in a room with two lights, he throws both hands up in the air and signs “light” with both of them.

He’s working on saying “kitty” and “shoe.” Right now they sound like “kkkuh” and “shshshuh,” but I know what he means.

When it’s time to let the water out in the tub, he uncovers, recovers, and uncovers the drain. And then he looks up at us with such pride.
