Monday, 23 June 2014: One Year and Twelve Weeks Old.
Ayla was paying more attention at The Wiggles yesterday than I realised!
On the way to day care this morning I decided to sing “hot potato”… and Ayla knew the actions!!
For only ever having heard the song once before, amidst a stack of other songs, I was shocked and stunningly impressed Ayla remembered!
When I sang the words “hot potato, hot potato” Ayla made little fists and banged them together, albeit in a clapping motion rather than a stacking one.
When I sang “cold spaghetti, cold spaghetti” Ayla waved her hands sideways in the air with little spirit fingers, so very close to the up and down waving action from the song.
And then when I sang “mashed banana, mashed banana” Ayla nailed it, opening her fingers wide, smashing her palms together and twisting them left and right with a cheeky grin on her face.
THEN! Just when I thought Ayla couldn’t get any more amazing, I caught her playing “round and round the garden” with herself!
Ayla was tickling her left palm with the fingers on her right, before touching her forearm, then her upper arm, then sticking her fingers under her arm in an attempt to tickle herself!
I squealed with delight and amazement! Then Ayla did it again… This time with her version of words!!
Gosh Ayla is amazing. So overwhelming, undeniably amazeballs.
