Today he wanted my attention and said "mom!" I turned from what I was doing and I looked right at him. I didn't say anything as it was obvious that I was directing my attention to him. (I mean obvious to *me*)
We had good solid eye contact. But he kept saying "MOM" over and over again, getting louder and louder each time, he was clearly upset because I hadn't asked him "what?"
I noticed right away (and that's the reason I just kept quiet for awhile; to see what he would do). So he either wasn't processing that I was ready to hear what he was going to say or didn't understand that social cue of eye contact. That really surprised me.
Anyone else have this happen, he's almost four.
