Did you read Pat the Bunny as a kid? Me too. Well since then, the author has come out with a whole line of “Pat the… ” books. This afternoon, the 16-month-old and I were pawing through Pat the Cat and arrived at the last page – where you squeeze the teddy bear’s tummy and it squeaks. So after squeaking the teddy, squealing, and clapping his hands a whole lot, the little man looks down at his tummy and gives it a good squeeze, waiting presumably for the corresponding noise. He then looks up at me in complete bewilderment after which I had to explain the disappointing difference between stomaches.

(besides making squeaking noises, all things involving water, and stacking blocks, the little guy loves balloons, hence the pretty picture above)
