Outside the fact that this makes me laugh out loud, I love it for many reasons:
- I need to put the cats' bowls up because Aiden tries to eat from them instead of dump them all over like he used to.
- He's showing the beginnings of imaginative play.
- He's hearing our cats eat/drink and therefore imitating the sound and actions they make!
- At the end, he totally reads his dad's lips (his dad is not signing, yet Aiden signs back his version of cat) ... not that I LOVE this as we don't emphasize lip reading, but isn't it amazing how he's already teaching himself to understand what's being said when he's without his CIs (he had just gotten out of a bath).
and when the cat bowls are up, Aiden will dump his snack bowl on the floor, get on his belly or all fours, and eat up his snack like a dog or cat would. Oh if he would only say "meow" or "cat" now!
