After a crazy snowstorm that hit Oklahoma, Cullen, Mama and Baba (as Cullen calls his dad) worked on learning words and expressions. Cullen's verbal word count is at 26+ words and counting! Crazy awesome for only a almost 17-month-old. We've been working hard with books and flash cards, but he's so chatty and smart, that's not all too hard - he's actually surpassed his sign language and let's us know when he wants to "eat eat eat" "more more" and "drink drink" as he knows the words vs the signing (although we very much continue to promote signing).
Onto the expressions! Cullen's very much into books. So much so, he'll mimic all books and expressions for people. There is this book called "Baby Faces" by Indestructibles that has all sorts of expressions in it and he LOVES IT RN. It's amazing. The photo captured here shows him mimicking mama and baba doing the expressions. Can you guess what the expressions are?
We are very big into learning by the STEAM program and teaching our children to embrace all that encompasses STEAM. If you have any questions, let us know!
