But last week he had a vocabulary explosion. At first, I wasn't sure if my claims of his talking could be substantiated. In addition to NOT hearing things that ARE being said, my whacked out ears have been known to HEAR things that AREN'T being said. But I am pleased to announce that I have received independent confirmations from Aaron, my friend Julie, our beloved babysitter Ninny, and both Cade and Drew that Josh is really talking!
In addition to more pedestrian baby terms such as "Uh oh", here's a sampling of Joshie's musings last week:
- Both please and thank you, unprompted (finally, I have succeeded in raising a kid with manners!)
- I like it
- Want it
- Chugga-chugga (as in choo, choo)
- Big Chicken (in honor of Marietta's famous landmark, which we now pass every day on the way to Cade's school)
Yes, I think he'll do just fine here.
