Communicating with a One Year Old

Isaiah is at that stage of language development where he comprehends everything we are saying, but we understand very little of what he is saying. It doesn't matter that we don't understand all those cool sounds that come out of his mouth, he just keeps on talking to us!

One evening Isaiah opened the door to go outside. He took one step out and realized that the ground was wet. (It has just rained after being sunny earlier and he wasn't expecting wet.) Isaiah turned around and pointed and talked and I knew exactly what he was communicating. He wanted me to hand him a rag off of the pile of rags I keep on the washer for spills. I handed him a rag and he proceeded to wipe up the "spill", the rain on the step.
