Putting Words Together

With the concerns about The Boy's hearing, I am even more grateful for each verbal milestone that he reaches. This past week, he has really been putting words together in earnest. So we've had some good combinations and some not so good.

"Sit mum" (sit with mum; meaning that he wants to sit in the chair with me.
"More honey" "Juice please"
"Watch Elmo" "That Elmo" "More Elmo" "Elmo Daddy" (meaning watching Elmo in bed with Daddy in hopes that both will fall asleep)
"No potty" "No shoe" "No coat"

Fun. Especially the "no potty" one.

Meatball fell asleep on our walk and is just now waking up, so a 7:30 bedtime is unlikely.

Yeah, "no potty" isn't a favorite... Although "Elmo Daddy" sounds really cute. :-)

Wow! Cool! Something that is working for us most of the time is saying "first coat, then outside/park." The Boy will probably not be thrilled at first, but he'll get it, eventually! You know how it is! Our little people are adorable but extremely persistent!

you gotta love how the "no......" become abundant quickly! They have in our house for sure.

Where you originally mama? When did you make the trasition to mum? We just made the trasition recently, around 22 months- makes me a little sad to be mom, and not mama.
