Writing His Own Story

Linus is at the stage of language development where he narrates most every aspect of life. At times when it is getting on my nerves, I remind myself that most of his language experience comes from the daily narrations I've provided him every day for the past two and a half years. I'm guessing he found that annoying at times. Usually though I find his little narrations hilarious. Here are a few of his most commonly uttered phrases:

"Linus/I stumbled."

"I am upset." (A result of us encouraging him to identify his feelings rather than just throw a fit.)

"Linus wants to play cars."

"Mommy, play trains. Play trains, Mommy."

"Morning time." (Said both first thing upon wake-up and when fighting nap time.)

"Wednesday is purring."

"All done." At which time we prepare to wash up. Followed quickly by: "No. Still eating."

He's definitely gaining more control over pronouns. His narrations are slowly changing from the third person, "Linus is awake," to the more appropriate "I am awake."
