Levi's imagination has been growing by leaps and bounds. Watching that develop has been my favorite part of this age. He is always pretending to be some animal (current favorite: kitty cat or alligator) or one of the characters from his favorite tv programs (current favorite: Diego or Boots the Monkey). He also likes to try different professions and sports on for size (current favorite: firefighter and football player). Now he has taken to pretending to be a combination of things. Following are some recent examples:
"a deer who plays football"
"a doctor for alligators"
"farmer race car driver"
"Boots the Monkey scooter rider"
Levi also likes to assign us all parts to play. Friday, I was told that I was a spider and that he was a puppy and the puppy was rescuing the spider from a mud slide. Yesterday he told me that he was 'baby Miles' and that Milo was 'baby Alison'. Another time he told us that he was a farmer and that Daddy was a cow. When asked what Mama was he said, "a cow" and when asked what baby was he said, "a little pig."
