Today at work I was talking to the baby about leaves. We were exploring the garden and talking about the words for different things. Okay, I was talking. I showed him the yellow flowers, the white blossom, and of course the green leaves. He seems to recognise some colours at least. He’s said “red” once or twice. Or, you know, made sounds that are meant to mean red. I was hoping he might pick up “green” today. But instead he just tried to eat a leaf.
Maybe next time.
