Remember that post from a while back when we celebrated your first "meaningful" word? (By the way, it was "bubble.") Well, at that time, we were hoping and praying that you would start communicating a little more with us, and I must say, you have really stepped it up lately in the vocabulary department. Now be aware that a lot of your words are only intelligble to your Daddy and me, and they are kind of "our house specific," but here is a list of your current words.
Mama (and you say this like CRAZY now,)
Boxster (you actually say Doxster; for some reason, "b" words start with "d.")
Bye Bye, (pronouced by you as "dye dye")
No, (oy, do I hear this a lot)
More, (the way you say this is a hoot: it's like a "Moooowwwwwaaahhhh")
Ball, (again, with that b and d thing, it's "dall")
Banana, (In Ian-speak it's Nalna)
There are a few more, I think, but these are the ones off the top of my head. Then there are your signs, although you only have a few of those. To date, you can sign more, eat, please, and light. You would rather take my hand and show me what you want than sign, and that's ok. Especially now that you are vocalizing more words. And those words have really taken off during the last few weeks, proving yet again that you will get around to doing things on your own time. I'm just glad that you're able to tell me about the things you need and want more than you used to, and I look forward to having little conversations with you.
I love you, Mommy
