It’s amazing when the language thing starts to click, isn’t it? I’ve yet to find a baby book that I like and I’m terrible about writing things down, so I’ve been trying to remember all of Dashiell’s little words. But he seems to be adding new ones every week and I’m having trouble remembering them already!
If you’ll indulge me for a moment, I’m going to record them here. At least the internet will know so when I finally get a baby book I can write them in it.
At about a year he had 4 words. I remember that.
Yaya (our nanny Gloria)
Plus a few baby sign which he still uses: more, enough, hungry, tired and milk.
And now he has these too:
wuh-wuh! (his word for dog, which is really like him saying, ruff ruff!)
And he’ll basically repeat anything you try to teach him if he’s in the right mood. It’s so neat. Brock came back from running with him this morning and said that he’s trying to say “truck” (because obviously he’s obsessed with large trucks since he’s a boy). He says “uck”. But close enough! And he occasionally says “unda” for his BlaBla panda. (They have some really cute new stuff, btw.) It’s really pretty amazing how their little minds work.
We’re waiting for him to come up with a name for “froggy“, his most prized, precious possession. Maybe it’s like soooo important it doesn’t need an actual name.
