He has definitely gotten the concept. He sometimes informs me that I should squeal, "Zaydie! I am so proud of you." He lilts the "Zaydie" part to get three distinct syllables and pitches...is he a mimic?
Anyway, today as I sat him down to a lunch that I hoped/figured he would like
- greek yogurt
- whole wheat ritz with cream cheese
- strawberries filled with cardamom whipped cream
I am not sure if I should congratulate myself for successfully teaching a concept or mock myself for the excessive amounts of praise I am obviously doling out.
For the record, he didn't eat the strawberries. They were the new experimental food I like to try for at every meal.
