i made some simple flash cards for DS when he was about 4 months - just pictures of mum, dad, our dog and a few other simple toys. i added a few more a few months ago so now we have about 20 with things he is familiar with like shoes, sippy cup, bottle, nan, pa etc.
he is now just over 12 months. the other day they were all spread out on the floor and he wandered over, found the one with the bottle and brought it over to me and gave me a big grunt (he makes a sound like 'nup!' when he's trying to tell me something). i thought is he just playing and stuff or does he want a milk? lo and behold i got him a milk and he scoffed the lot, and he's not usually one to be excited by any food other than strawberries and he rarely drinks a full bottle these days.
is this just a fluke or is it likely that DS could be starting to communicate this way? he's not really saying any words yet except babbling mum mum, dada and na-na (banana).
