First of all, I am proud (ok ELATED) to report that Christian has been CONSISTENTLY responding and producing all 6 Ling Sounds for the past week. WAHOO!
We went up to the mall yesterday to fill some time before dinner, and I was shocked to see that Santa was already holding post with his elves. Wasn't Halloween just 2.5 weeks ago? Didn't we JUST carve pumpkins. And most importantly, haven't we finally JUST mastered the fall vocabulary that we've been working on? I was so not ready to replace our little conversations about turkeys, mashed potatoes, football, and pilgrims with Santa, Snowmen, Baby Jesus, and Elves.
I don't think I have to worry about Christian getting the vocab for this season. When we walked by Santa and I asked him to wave to him, he promptly said "Hiiii Danta". He told me all about the "NO-Man" and the "No-Dars" (he thinks snowflakes are snow-stars). And when Santa's elves appeared, he laughed and said "Ed-Hat" (red hat).
So, I'll be working on Christmas vocab cards this week...and I guess I might as well start Christmas shopping too!
