His First Pretending

It’s been a long time since I posted about what Asher is up to, and since his second birthday is next Saturday, I feel a good long letter coming on. But in the meantime, I have to write about his first (in my view) true pretend play. Asher will sometimes mimic his brother, if Lucas is pretending to be a mouse or a cat or something, but that’s mimicking. This was all of his own invention:

For Christmas I gave Asher a set of four wooden people. They are small—about 2 inches tall.

This morning he was clutching the people in his hands and then laid two of them down next to each other. He said "Mommy, Baby, milk." Ian then asked him who they were. Asher answered "Mommy, Baby." Then smiled and said and signed "milk." Ian asked, "Is that baby having milk?" "Jah! (Yeah!) Baby milk." Then he giggled.

So cute!

Weaning this kid is going to be hard.
