Moo Baa La La La

Elliot learned all of his animal sounds just in time for a trip to the Western Idaho Fair.  We were so delighted with his interest in all of the farm animals.  And, because he would run up to  them making their sounds, we knew he was interested.  He says a perfect, high pitched "mmmahm" for the goats and an awesome, deep, loud "bHHAAA" for the sheep.  His "nehh" for the horse is adorable, too.  It was so amazing to hear him make the all of the sounds with complete accuracy, and then watch him as he heard the actual live animals make the sounds right back to him.  Live animals, plus some of the sweetest corn on the cob I've ever tasted, a corn dog and some churros, and we had ourselves one perfect trip to the fair.

He and Molly are kindred spirits. You have to get those sounds on video...

When Jack was old enought to sit in his chair and actually shove lunch into his mouth without making a huge mess, I used to read him that book...often. It was one of my favorites! I start my Tuesday - Thursday Molly days tomorrow, and I'm definitely going to look for it. Of course she already knows ALL the animal sounds, including a giraffe (don't ask). Thanks for making me think of it again!

I can see Elliot loving a yard with gardens and animals. He is just up for anything new.
