I have been teaching my son to wave bye-bye for a while and he would do it only if he felt like it. I know, he is a kid and I can't rely on him responding the way I like all the time so I left it at that. I don't want to pressure him because it will only lead to frustration for me and him. Yesterday, I babysat a toddler younger than him by a few months. When the parents were about to leave, the father said goodbye to his son. When bubby heard it, he waved his hand and said ba-ba (bye-bye). I was surprised and proud. I thought it might just be a one day wonder but just this morning he woke me up and I remembered yesterday's event so I waved at him and what d you know? He waved back and said ba-ba. I did it over and over again, in between his blabbering and me talking. It is funny. I hope he will learn more. When he gets excited he tries to talk but I can't understand a thing he says. I should pay more attention. For now let me be happy with my bubby's accomplishment.
