I think I have a little cowboy on my hands already. He makes neighing sounds as soon as we start up the driveway. He also makes neighing sounds when grandma (whom he has dubbed Me-Maw) picks him up because he knows she will take him to say hello and maybe feed the horses some carrots. He neighs at toy horses, spring horses, horses he saw on a preview for the Olympic Games. It amazes me, that he has such a recognition for horses in all shapes and sizes at 16 months of age (and really, it started even earlier).
The other day I was preparing dinner and Landon was begging for some food so I handed him a baby carrot. He took off running and when he started neighing, I peeked into the living room and saw him trying to feed his spring horse a carrot! The exact same thing his grandma showed him with the real horses TWO WEEKS AGO!!! This is possibly the cutest thing he's ever done:
I am in serious awe about how quickly the little brains of children develop and the connections they can form at such a young age. It is such an exciting stage to witness!
