1-year-old, who is now 14 months, loves to “help” around the house. Any time he does something he regards as helpful, he will get a big smile on his face and clap his hands. I think it’s sweet that he wants to please his parents, so I usually encourage his efforts by clapping along, telling him thank you, or saying, “What a good helper you are!” Yesterday, Hubby was putting away some dishes and had left the silverware drawer open. 1-year-old noticed it was open, crawled over, pushed it closed, and then said what we think was “helper.” Isn’t that sweet?
Also, today I was positively smothering his cute cheeks with kisses, as I am known to do. He had a stuffed toy in his hand, and he literally shoved it into my mouth to stop the kisses! Hey!
