Will is turning into a regular mimic. He loves to parrot back words. He can now say an impressive amount of words for a ten month old (in my not-so-biased opinion).
The other day we were at a family reunion and I was sitting with him on my lap (we are in major separation anxiety right now, more about that in another post) and visiting with his Grandma. She was trying to get him to say one of his newer words that she hadn't heard yet - kitty. Will doesn't do his tricks on command very often and he sat there, looking at his grandmother in silent reproach. She kept trying, entreating him with a "Kitty, kitty, kitty."
He turned his head away from her, choosing instead to focus on a lady bug that had landed on my arm.
I then said, "I guess that's a negative."
And Will said, "Negative."
My kid is a genius! :)
