Liam gets smarter and more aware of what we say every single day. I love witnessing his responses to my requests.
"LEEE-UMMM" (he stops whatever mischief he is up to)
"Let me see" (he will show me and hand me whatever small treasure he's found or plopped into his mouth)
"Close the door" or "shut the door" (he closes whatever cabinet, door or dryer he opened)
"Put that away, please" (he'll put his toys away or the hand towels from the kitchen drawer he likes to empty or whatever he's just gotten out)
"Sit down" or "Get down" or "Lay down"
"Be nice" (he'll pet the cat instead of pull or grab)
"Clap your hands" (no physical que needed, he knows what the word "clap" means)
"Dance" (no physical que or music required)
"Fold your arms" (no que needed, he folds his arms for family prayers and prayers over our food)
"Can I have a kiss?" (This past week he's been obliging us with a kiss on command. Sometimes a few in a row!)
"Come on" or "let's go" (he follows me or comes to me to take him somewhere)
"Show me your belly" (with both hands he proudly displays his belly)
"Where is your nose?" (he almost picks his nose on this demand)
"Let's go brush our teeth" (he follows me to the bathroom and waits for me to give him his toothbrush, then brushes his teeth like a good boy)
Don't I have such a good little puppy!?
