Water!! Bruiser loves water; playing in it, stamping in puddles, squirting it from his water pistols and the hosepipe.
The lovely weather of late has seen us getting out in the garden and tidying it up ready for the summer. The other weekend we laid new turf at the front of the house. The highlight of Bruiser’s days are going out front with his Daddy and watering the new grass. Ok so he doesnt so much water the grass than squirt into the air so the sun reflects on the water and creates little ‘baybows’ (rainbows).
Bruiser has been able to sign ‘dauter’ (water) for a while but, hes using it more and more now in conjunction with the signs for Garden, Rainbow, Play and also Wash and Car!
Its quite a difficult sign to master for little ones as you need to make sure the palm of your hand faces outward. Most of the time Bruiser gets it spot on 🙂
