Peekaboo

This morning, after Caleb finished his bottle, we were laying in bed cuddling for a while. Then he took Yertle and covered my face so he couldn't see me anymore.

"Are you?" he said.

I had no idea what he'd said though. It wasn't something I'd ever heard him say before.

He moved Yertle away. "Boo."

Over and over again until I finally figured out he was trying to play peekaboo with Yertle's help. It was so cute. It surprised me because it's not something I've ever tried to teach him before. Sometimes I'll play the "Where's Caleb?" part of the game. But I usually answer with "there you are" or "there he is" and never "peekaboo."

But since he was so sure that's how the game went, I followed along. Then I tried to get him to actually say the word "peekaboo," which he did. So cute. I love how much he's starting to talk.

Just curious- how long are you going to keep giving him bottles?

I know I've played peek-a-boo with him since he's been at my house. Maybe that's where he got it.
