Animal Sounds

Animal Sounds by Alligator Apps is such a fun game for Stella’s age (13 months). The game functions in “play” or “auto” modes; Stella seems to like picking her own animals, so I leave it in play mode. (And by picking, I mean attacking the screen with her whole hand.) As with other flash-card apps, you can also customize categories and sounds. It was fun to see which animals elicited a response from her, and which ones were duds. I found out that bison are not that funny, but horses and frogs are hilarious. She is definitely becoming more vocal, which makes this process even more interactive for the two of us.

Say, “Cheese!” (Literally. Say it.)

For now, she’d rather just eat cheese. Stella’s top front teeth are coming down. I’m curious to see what effect they have on her ability to make different language sounds and how her babble will change.

She is still playing with the iPad very regularly. We’ve tried a few different apps, but she still seems to like flash cards for about 4 minutes per day.
