As I sometimes do, I am documenting more of Davis’s growing verbal abilities for posterity (and the grandparents).
This weekend he correctly used a phrase and it donned on us that besides this exploding vocabulary, it means he is so empathetic to others, even the animals. “Mom, I’m going outside to keep the cats company.” we started letting the cats in the back yard and sometimes they get scared.
He also told us he was frustrated when we were reviewing a prior outburst. We have been trying to point out the difference between getting angry and being frustrated. He gets it! Such a great feeling as a parent to know we ARE getting through.
