How Am I Doing?

Inspired by Lola's blog and the update on how she is doing at 21 months, I thought I would do the same for Coby. We're overly impressed by Lola's vocabulary and she is way ahead with her numbers and colours, but young Coby is catching up.

He can count to 10 and especially likes the number 9. He can say red, yellow, blue, green and pink, but cannot quite identify the word to the right colour, everything is yellow! He can identify most CBeebies characters and can say their names along with Noddy, Mickey Mouse, Nemo (obviously), Dory (obviously) and Bart.

He absolutely adores cars! And can also say lorry, truck, taxi, train, tractor and plane. He points to the sky when he sees planes and makes the sound effects. He likes running too and shouts go, go, go!

Food wise, he loves fruit, particularly pears, bananas and strawberries. His favourite food is cheese and can munch happily away on chunks of strong cheddar. He likes to go into the food cupboard and drag things out, mainly the juice and boxes of cereal or crackers.

His manners are impeccable. Please, thank you and sorry feature many times during his day. And he does the sign as he says the word, rubbing his chest in a circle while saying sorry.

We've used the naughty step a few times and it seems to work so far, but as he approaches two years of age, I dare say the step will come into use a whole lot more.
