Toddler Talk: prompt book progression

Noah loves his prompt book so much, I am really surprised how well he's got on with it and how much he loves it. He would sit there all day going over all of his words for Nanny, Grandad, uncle Carl - anyone who will listen basically! So what have we added to the drawings recently: door, ball, digger, police car, slide, bus, man, banana and number 1,2 & 3. He still loves lorry, in fact he just loves all vehicles, he loves walking down the street and spying them all and when we are in the car he shouts at the top of his voice "lorry" when we pass one.

I think it's fair to say the terrible two's are hitting us earlier, that or it's just my pregnancy hormones kicking in a lot more in the final weeks, he is most definitely pushing buttons and misbehaving a lot more than normal. My lovely little cuddly boy, has gone from just that to slapping people around the face in the past couple of weeks. I have no idea where he has seen this, why he may be doing it, but I can only assume its his age and I think it's the fact he wants to be put down. He seems to only do it when you are holding him, so he's in arms reach of your face and he literally clobbers you one. Now the first time it happened to me, I laughed, as you do sometimes when they are being silly, I thought he was just messing around and ...
