My 18-month old son has been attending Gymboree Play & Music classes since he was 10 months old. There, he has learned to walk, control his body by climbing, walking on different surfaces, imitating movements, etc. and also interact with other children (he is my first so he has no other siblings at the moment). For several months he has been learning to talk and has a pretty extensive vocabulary of single syllable words. One day we were getting ready to go to Gymboree, he was acting up and not cooperating with getting into his car seat. So I told him that he needed to get into his car seat so that we could go to Gymboree. He immediately calmed down, looked up at me and said, "GYM-BO". His first multi-syllable word!
