It's amazing!

Oliver has, in the last few days, learned 4 new signs and 3 new words! He knows the sign for eat from before but now he also knows bug, fan, frog and toothbrush! He's started saying fan, too and he says sock and duck. I can't believe how smart this little guy is!

I also noticed that if I make his phone ring he answers it (although he always hands it to me). When I hand it back though he holds it up to his ear like he's talking on a real phone.

One more thing - he can turn around while walking. I'm sure he's been doing this for a bit but I just really noticed it today. He can turn corners without stopping or falling and he can turn all the way around to go back the way he came.

I'm so impressed with the little guy today!!!!

I still can't find my camera!

No recent pics because although I've looked high and low I can't seem to find the camera.

Oliver put his tower of rings together all by himself yesterday for the first time. Most of the time he just likes to chew on it, but yesterday he saw me put the first ring on the peg and he picked up the next one and put it on. Of course, it wasn't quite that easy, he tried about 10 times before he actually got it ON the peg, but he did it! Then he did all the other ones. Then he took them all off and did it four or five more times before he got sick of it and moved on. What a smart little guy!
