On saturday Evan was sitting on the floor playing with a toy when I heard a weird sound. I thought maybe he had a cold and his nose was whistling. When I saw his face, he had his mouth puckered and was quietly whistling. He only knows one or two notes, but still… I didn’t know little kids could do that. We didn’t try to teach him that, but sometimes I whistle at him because it makes him laugh. He’ll even whistle back if you whistle at him.
I sometimes joke to people that at first babies can’t do much that a pet couldn’t do, and that they slowly make the transition from pet-like housemate to a tiny little human! 🙂 Try teaching a dog to whistle!
