It's only words

Oliver has recently had a few episodes where his frustration seems to get the better of him. I'm not really surprised as he seems to understand so much of what we say but he has a limited vocabulary himself.

Having said that he is mimicing more and more of what we say. Just this evening I heard him say (with varying degrees of accuracy) "apple", "potato", "cockerel", "cat" and "fruit-pot". (The cat and the cockerel were not part of his meal, I promise.)

Tonight I walked into the bathroom as he sat in the bath and asked him "Did you pull the plug out?" and he promptly did just that. I didn't even know he knew what a plug was!
