Every week we are noticing growth and advancement in Julianna. We have just started reading very simple story books to her, and they hold her patience for all of about five minutes. Her favorite is Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See? Each spread has a different animal (Yellow Duck, Red Bird, Black Dog...) and we are sure to incorporate the sounds that each animal makes. Recently, Julianna has started reaching out and touching the pages, opening and closing her fingers as if she is trying to grab ahold of the animal. We were quite impressed when we realized she always reaches for the animal's face, particularly the eyes, no matter which direction the animal is facing. We're thinking Dash (our cat) probably won't be as excited about this development.
