Having a baby is awesome, and not just because my baby is ridiculously cute. It’s simply fascinating to watch them develop. Just about every week Lego starts making new sounds, or gets better with his hands, or something. Here are a few of his latest tricks:
- Rolling over—both ways
- Making bilabial trills, both voiced and voiceless
- Grabbing toys that are lying next to him
- Putting stuff in his mouth
- Trying to crawl (albeit unsuccessfully)
My favorite part, of course, is watching him practice making sounds. He started with velars, then started producing coronals, and is now working on labials. I’m sure that in no time he’ll be grasping the finer points of syntax and semiotics.
And of course, what baby-themed post would be complete without insufferably cute pictures?*
*Insufferably cute pictures moved to the end of the post out of respect for the babyphobic Melyngoch.
