15 1/2 months old

Doesn't Fazal look like he's growing up?!?! Right now he is 15 1/2 months old, pretty hard to believe.
We are ready to declare his first real word, where he really understands the meaning, the concept, and when to use it correctly, as "hot". That's our boy!! :-) He points to steaming water on the stove and says "hot". He touches his food before he eats it and says "hot". He touches the radiator when the heat is on and says "hot". And what's extra sweet about it is that he waves his hand at the same time, we think because when we were trying to teach him to eat slowly when his food was still hot, we'd wave our hand over it, like you do when you're trying to cool things off. Now he thinks that's a mandatory thing to do when you say the word!

This is what I do when I am not getting my way!!!
He also LOVES trucks, tractors, and cars. The way people say that little boys do, but I never really believed it. It's true. He points to cars going by on the road. He'll find tiny little pictures of cars on something else that has nothing to do with vehicles, and he spins his hands around (like he's behind a steering wheel) and makes a low, groaning, aka. motor, noises!! He reads books about steam shovels and dump trucks. It's all about vehicles these days.

    I see, Fazal is a learning mode to many, even to his old dad. We are all proud of his development. He is so fast! Oh wow! he has begun his aei,abc,123 etc journey. CONGRATULATIONS FAZAL AND YOUR RESPONSIBLE PARENTS!

    That,'man's glory, exaltation, respect, wisdom etc is achieved through acquiring of true knowlegde'

    'Regard man as a mine rich in gems of inestimable value, education can alone, cause him to' manifest his potentialities and enable mankind to benefit therefrom. Children are a treasure no society should neglect. Their responsiveness depends greatly on what their elders offer them or fail to offer them.

    Evan was the same way! He was so engrossed in trucks, trains, etc. And Alyssa never went through that stage that I remember. So much for the myth of gender differences being purely cultural..???Leslie
