Father Christmas at Harrods

A day out in town today - to the Science Museum (much water play and throwing of beanbags) and then on to see Santa at Harrods.

Despite being fully booked, it didn't seem to be very busy and we didn't have to wait too long. Father Christmas spent a good long time chatting to us, although didn't manage to convince George that he is a good guy - check out the grumpy look in the photo!

Communication - Talking

Although George doesn't say much, he has a mixed collection of words - sometimes used in conjunction with signs but also some used alone:

Names: Mama/Mummy, Daddy, Sarah (Rarer), Ruby (Bubby), Nanny, Dada, Bella (Ella), Man, Noo Noo, La La

Food: Cheese (eesh), Potato (tarto), Banana (nana)

Animals: Spider (dada), Bear (air), Animal (mammal)

Miscellaneous: More, Paper (pabber), Umbrella (ella), Car, (Ah), Home (ohm), Uh-Oh

Communication - Signs

Before we all forget, I wanted to make a list of all the signs that George knows - it's now quite a few, and they are an eclectic mix!

Dog, Cat, Rabbit, Fish, Frog, Bird, Spider, Crocodile, Monkey, Dolphin, Butterfly, Elephant, Giraffe, Pig, Horse, Caterpillar, Train, Car, Bus, Eat/Hungry/Food, Drink, Milk, Cheese, Cake, Ice Cream, Egg, More, Enough, Sleep, Home, Bye, Cold, Hot, Wait, Tree, Flower, Teletubbies, Something Special, Hat, Bin, Book, Paper, Pen/Drawing, Swimming

We can pretty much cope with most situations using this vocabulary!
