So I have talked about all the words Hayden understands, but he also has a somewhat related party trick (literally – you can ask Emily because I made him do it when she was visiting).  He brings us a book and we ask him ‘Where is the ______?’  Whatever we ask him, he points to.  It all started with some strawberries in the Eric Carl book The Very Hungry Caterpillar, about a month ago.  After pointing out the strawberries roughly a thousand times, I asked him where the strawberries were.  He got very excited and pointed to them!  Now he can do it with oranges, plums, apples, pears, rainbow, bunny, sun, orange owl, kite, bubble, yak (I know!), the list goes on.  I will ask him about objects that are not on the page he is currently looking at, and he will flip through the book until he finds it, then point and laugh.  It is so cute!
