I May Be Doing Something Right After All...

My poor Erich has had a pretty rough few weeks. First he had a nasty stomach bug followed by a super nasty cold, and then battled what we believe was a miserable ear infection. So naturally, being the empathetic mother that I am, E & I spent most of our days cuddling on the couch and watching cartoons. It was a yummy treat and I completely indulged.

We don't always watch TV though; we usually spend a significant portion of our days reading the zillions of books he has (quite literally) strewn throughout the house. So imagine my glee when, in the middle of
Der Prinz von Ägypten (yes, we've spent a fortune on Disney auf Deutsch), Erich slid off my lap, toddled over to his diaper bag and pulled out his Baby Moses book! I was shocked that he associated that book to what was on TV, which proves that he understands a lot more than I thought. It may not seem like much of a feat to an experienced parent, but its just so amazing to watch my little boy grow up. Besides, I must get a few brownie points upstairs for teaching my kid a Bible story.
