This post is dedicated to all the new words my 22-month-old is saying.  At 18 months I shared that he hardly said five whole words and even those were sketchy to qualify as actual words.  Now it is as though he has unleashed a whole new toddler vocabulary.  To go with his early "terrible two" attitude.  Don't get me wrong - I love this stage of development...much more than the immobile, non-verbal infant stage.  He is a lot of fun!  A frustrating, somewhat annoying handful at times - but also really fun!
preppy style...and in major need of a haircut!

each time he sees one of these weeping holes in the stone walls around our 'hood, he shouts, "IN!" 

love, love, love this boy

not-so-happy face

"Baby - OUT!"
"num nums"
My favorite currently is the title of this post - "Out!" which he most often says while pointing at my ginormous pregnant belly.  Second most often is when he sees his,or any, bed...because he can get "out!" of it.  And does.  Way too early.

Other fun new words include...

-Ambulance {which is every white large vehicle}
-Alarm {learned when I set off all the smoke alarms a few weeks ago}
- Elbow {no clue}
- Aminal {animal, but close enough}
- Ipad {this was one of his first, which delighted the Mac technician I dealt with after spilling water on my computer}
- In
- Tractor
- Mac {his name. he won't say Cormac}
- Baby
- Hot {he declares every food to be 'hot'}
- Done {this one is my least favorite, as it is highly overused, and he will say it even when he is not, in fact, done.}
- Boom
- Ap Goose {apple juice}
- Book
- UP!
- Ohhhhm {home}
- Garage {referring to anything that large items can be fit into}

And that is all I can think of at 6am without a full cup of coffee in my system.  Time to go rescue Hubby, who has corralled the little guy back in his bed to give me a few more moments of coffee/blog time.

(Did I mention I am now dilated to FIVE centimeters????)  


  1. That is so cute!!! I can't wait for my little guy to start talking. It sounds like that baby of yours is going to be "out" really soon.

  2. What the heck? Are you serious, you crazy VERY OPEN lady?! ;) My friend went to an appt, they told her she was 6 cms, and needs to go in the hospital to have her baby. I cannot believe you are 5 cm with NO CONTRACTIONS! I had 12 hours of contractions before going in to the hospital and being a 5. I hate you all.

  3. awww so cute. I love that picture of him in the green outfit. he is such a cutie!

  4. hilarious! his hair looks long in the green outfit! :)

  5. Yay for all that progress - here's to hoping baby is "out" soon!!


I adore comments. So leave one. Or two. Or as many as you want.
