A Full-On Sentence


OMG! My oldest just said a full-on, regular sentence on his own. He said, “May I have some more please?” as clear as day.

He’s been talking, obviously, for a while now but usually in 3 or 4 word sentences like, “More juice please, mom” or something like that. A few days ago I introduced this new long-form sentence. He repeated it after me but didn’t seem to take to it. I let it go and he didn’t say it yesterday.

This evening, I had a jug of lemonade on the floor near my bed. My bugee picks it up and says, “May I have some please?” It would have been more accurate to say, “May I have some lemonade please?” but I’ll take what I can get for his first full-on sentence on his own.

My baby isn’t a baby anymore ….


Adoption #2: She Called Me ‘Mama’


When I tell you this little girl is learning EVERY DAY …..   it is no joke. She’s been a few words here and there for a while now. General things that let us know what she wants to do/h20170221_154233ave/eat. Well, last night she said, “Hi mama” clear as day like she had been working on it and was just waiting to whip it out on us. Lol

She’s 15 months old and this morning she woke up and is on a ‘mama’ streak! Lol About 40% of what she has said has ended with a ‘mama’! How funny! I can’t wait to see where the day takes us linguistically! Lol

Inglewood, No Way, Wu-Tang and Ball. Things the Baby Says.

wu-tang-logoWe are in the phase where the baby has started repeating things. The only words he says regularly are: “dada”, “mama” and “baba” for bottle so it surprised me the other night when we were playing around saying a word for each letter of the alphabet and the baby started repeating us!

He is from the City of Champions, so you know he’d come up with “Inglewood” for I. The baby was listening and said, “Inglwooo”. We got excited and tried to get him to say more words, but he kept his mouth shut until He said, “No way, Jose” for N. The baby jumped right in and said, “No wuuuhhh”. Lol We kept it up but he didn’t make another sound until we said “Wu-Tang” for w. See the connection? He’s playing with the w sounds. He could see the connection. He was trying to practice that sound. How cool is that?

This morning he was watching his baby sign language video and the video said, “Ball”. As soon as the video said it, he repeated it! In a few months he’ll be toddling around the house talking up a storm. He already babbles all day, but perhaps we’ll understand what he’s talking about soon.
