Mini Milestone: Pretending

I have been waiting for this for quite some time; pretending is one of my favorite things that little kids do. I’m not sure I even noticed when it happened the first few times. He put an apple up to Pooh’s mouth and said “num, num, num.” Then his stuffed kitty got thirsty and shared his water. Adorable.

The other day, Spencer played independently while I did some chores around the house and I looked over and he had his copy of the Very Hungry Caterpillar still open and had his elephant in his hand and was saying, “Ely eat lolly, yum. Ely eat muffin, yum.” He moved the elephant around the page, from food to food, and put the trunk up to the food and made his elephant eat. It seriously was the cutest thing. I snapped a few pictures, but he stopped right when I switched to video mode on the camera.

    I’m such a dumbass; the pediatrician asked us about whether or not O was pretending yet, and I cocked my head to the side and said, “Uhh…I’m not sure what that means.” Do you know what that means? IT MEANS I HAVE NO IMAGINATION AT ALL. Sigh.

    BUT, now that I understand it – we’ve been laughing ourselves silly watching O pretend with things. CUTE.

    That’s adorable, and seems like Really Advanced pretending. Evan pretend cooks and pretend bowls or kicks balls (when he doesn’t have a real one) and pretends to read his books when there isn’t anyone to read to him. But having an animal out of the book eat the things off the page is fancy. Spencer really is super smart.

    Pretend sports seems pretty fancy to me. Also, occasionally he likes to feed me the food from the book. Which pretty much means he shoves the book in my face and yells nom.
