Oliver as a toddler… (14 month old)

It’s been a loooong time since my last post. I guess I have been too busy serving 2 boys!

Just wanted to make a memo here of all the things that Oliver has been doing for the past 1-2 months. He is now over 14 months old.

He understands quite a handful of words and shows that he understands them. I’m pretty sure he understands more than we know. He knows where the sky is, what birds are, buses, toys, pram, up, down, walk, etc. ..

He is starting to “talk” too. He points to something and says “there!” with a very excited high-pitched voice.

He knows stars… he will do the fist squeeze every time he talks or hears about stars.

He is rather jealous of Edward when it comes to mummy. Sometimes it’s hard for him to share mummy’s lap (that goes for Edward too by the way).

Oliver likes to point to the same thing that we are actually talking to Edward about… as if to say that he knows what’s going on too 🙂

Staring to show a little interest in shape puzzles, but still in the early stage. He doesn’t quite know his shapes yet. Anyway, he’s only 14 months old!

He likes to play with Edward’s pretend-cooking toys.. pots and pans.. etc

He can play with megabloks and connect 2-3 blocks together.

Likes to talk on the “phone” with any object he can hold onto… well, any object that looks like a phone e.g. remote control, ipod, toy phone, real phone, etc

Can climb up onto the sofa by himself and get down reversed by himself!

Runs perfectly fine. LOVES to climb up and down steps/stairs…

Loves reading books… though he only has a few favourites.

Elephant is his favourite animal.

He can make consistent animals sounds for elephants, tigers, lions, chicken/hen, duck, pig, monkey!

He can point to a duck on a page all by himself and say “qua qua” … haha… he recognizes animals in books.

He is growing so fast!!!
