Don’t be fooled by his tiny size and the fact that he is the youngest in the family. This little blighter is quite a smart fellow and has already figured out that he needs to be firm, strong and assertive to get what he wants. This evening SId was snacking on some slices of apple when Amu crawled along. He first signed “give” to Sid but got not apple for the effort so he loudly said “Dey!!” (give!). Still no luck. At this point, he went after the plate. Sid moved his plate away. So Amu stood up holding onto Sid tshirt and tried to grab it from his hands. Sid extricated himself and moved away with the slice he had in his hand. As soon as he did that, Amu lunged for the plate that had been left unattended by Sid and grabbed himself a slice of the apple. He then proceeded to call out to Sid “Dada!” and show him the apple. Sid was mad and I was in splits! Amu nibbled on the apple and then plonked down on the floor and clapped for himself looking super proud and happy. “Bambambam” he babbled waving the apple around.
