|Kate (19 months) reading a book with Daddy.|
We’ve been working on manners with Kate, and I think she’s got them down! She says “please” when asking for something, “thank you” when she receives it, “help” when she needs assistance with something, and “sorry” if she thinks she’s harmed someone (usually one of her stuffed animals) in some way. Since she was an infant we’ve been trying to teach manners by saying the words for her. For example, I’d serve her meal and say, “Thank you, Mama.” Or she’d point for her milk (and later request “milk”) and we’d clarify, “milk, please” as the proper way to ask.
Something else I find hilarious, is that Kate loves to run around and announce that she’s a “naked baby!” after her bath. I finally caught her saying it (with a little prompting–she’s camera shy!) on video before we put her pajamas on one night.
Another super fun month!
