Rowan is now 14 months old and the past month has seen an explosion in his comprehension and language, as well as his developing sense of humour (ie, doing things differently on purpose and laughing afterwards, like wearing a placemat as a hat).
For my own records, here is what Rowan has been up to developmentally in the past month:
* Tries to climb everything!
* Does a lot of imitating the sounds that other people make (both words and noises)
* Is learning to differentiate (ie, not everything served on a white sideplate is cake, although he's ever-hopeful)
* Makes hand signs to ask for songs: Twinkle Twinkle Little Star, If You're Happy & You Know It, Pat-A-Cake, Incy Wincy Spider
* Knows how to unlock my iPhone
* Has definitely dropped down to one nap during the day, and will regularly go 4-5 hours in the morning before getting tired for a nap
* Gets excited about helping with home routines (ie, washing clothes, hanging clothing up, brushing teeth/hair, putting on shoes and socks)
* New words this month: App (as in a phone application!), cake, teeth, up, Mummy, key, milk ("mi") and Bunny ("buh")
