Useful tricks

What's the most useful "trick" your LO does?

Ex: I can ask Teagan, "Oooh, can I have that?" and she'll hand over whatever she's got (so long as its not suuuuper interesting).

Ronin can say ta when he wants something from you or wants to give you something. He doesn't always do it, but is starting to do it more frequently.

Aiden will scream and bang on the chair that we're letting him eat his meals in now whenever he's hungry. Lol

Totally pointing to and saying 'that' or 'want that' when he wants something.
Also shaking his head and saying 'no' when he is done eating or doesn't want something is pretty helpful.

When Tobey wants someone he holds out one hand, looks coy and says the name of who he wants (mama, dada etc)

He's also just learned nodding and shaking his head appropriately

If I want Isabelle to come where I am, it usually works if I hide from her sight and say "where's Isabelle?" She will usually come over and give a big smile like "here I am!"

One is if I tell Natalie to give me something, she will hand it to me.. Most of the time.. Sometimes she cries afterwards and sometimes she doesnt..

Also if I tell her to come to me,she will crawl to me = me not having to go and get her..hehe

Chloe likes to give me things that she know she isn't supposed to have. If she doesn't automatically bring them to me, If I say her name she will jump and bring it to me.
She also says that when she wants something. She was telling my mom today she she wanted "that" to potatoes! lol

He does like to turn the light switches on and off.

If I am folding laundry, he will take what I've already folded and act like he is dusting the furniture. Maybe he's just trying to tell me that I need to do a better job. Smile

I appreciate Eleanor's cooperativeness and assistance when getting dressed or for diaper changes. She pushes her legs up and through, etc.
