Pickles & Tickles

Thought I'd share some cute pics of Dean from today. We've discovered that he LOVES pickles, even though he cringes with every bite.

Here's the face he makes after each bite...

Tickle Time with Dad:

Snuggle time with George:

Lego Time with Grandpa Eddie:

In case you didn't notice, I added a new list to the right-hand column of this page. It's an ongoing list of Dean's words. He TRIES to say a lot more than this, but these are the distinguishable words. He's also getting really good at pointing out his body parts. He knows nose, eyes, ears, mouth, tongue, and pico (that's Hawaiian for belly button). My Mom has been teaching him to point out his butt, but luckily he doesn't quite have that one down yet. He's also picking up new animal sounds every day. Of course, meow was his first word. Now he can also make the correct sound for Monkey (ooh ooh ooh), bug (bzzzzz), tiger and lion (these are usually a growl but sometimes we'll get a meow for them too. Technically I think that's right, especially because he never meows for the monkey sound!!). The other really cute thing he's started doing is fake laughing...whenever he hears other people laughing (even though he usually has no idea what they're laughing at), he'll let out this really big belly laugh that's so completely different from his spontaneous laugh. The last month has been HUGE in his development. He still loves music class and his latest favorite instrument is the harmonica (which he can actually play better than Joel). Well, I think that about sums up Dean's latest accomplishments!!!
