Acorn found two toy pigs, one with its eyes open and one with its eyes closed.   He hid one in each hand, and held his hands behind his back.

Holding out the closed-eyes pig:  “Pig sleepin’.  Wake up, pig!”

Quickly switching hands, and holding out the open-eyed pig:  “Pig wake.”

Baby book type notes:  This is the first time he’s made up a story and been able to convey it to us with words.  He’s done plenty of pretend play before this, but the verbalization and putting it in sequence with props is new.

Upon coming home tonight, he called out for me:  “Mama!  Where are you?  My Acorn is home!”

He’s grasped “mine” quite thoroughly, but doesn’t quite have the concept of “your” down yet.
