Hazel watchers out there, know ye that she can, at 16.5 months:
– say ~170 words and understand more
– recognise a rainbow on my screen and go to find her book on rainbows
– eat with a spoon without always spilling everything
– build many blocks into a stack (7 is her record so far)
– make the sounds of a sheep, cow, dog, cat, parrot or duck
– say “eight” when parked on my shoulder and I say “pieces of”
– stand on parental feet for a dance
– turn in a circle and fall over dizzy when being read the book about the “rosie ring”
– demand paper and pen (“draw!”) when she wants a good scribble
– throw a ball (or anything hand-sized) with some force
– play the piano on my iPhone and her little crocodile xylophone (“ding-ding”)
– give kisses to mummy and daddy at bedtime and whenever else she feels like it
– remember that nana will be coming in a couple of days time
– wave like a crazy thing when she figures out that someone is leaving
– smile like an angel
