Small Steps, Amazing Achievements: Apple!

This week, S has been wandering about the house saying,

A-paaah!

A-paaah!

A-paaah!

To be honest, at first I wasn’t sure what she was on about; I thought maybe she’d learned it at nursery or something. I tried to see if she was looking or pointing at something when she said it, but she was mostly just wandering about the house saying it.

    Oh, we love that book! I wrote a post about it recently - my son brought it downstairs and read it to me! She'll be saying orange before you know it :)
