Mom's Blinks: Toddler Words

Colin learning to talk is about the coolest thing ever.  (Something only a parent could say, I know, but so true!!)  Suddenly this little person can tell me what's going on in that head of his!

Some of my new favorites:

"Please" (boy does he know how to work this word.)
'Self" (I have a love hate relationship with this one...)
"Teeth brush'
"Seat down" (sit down, usually accompanied by a location)

Of course my all time favorite is still "Mommy."  Even when it's whined, or shrieked or said a zillion times in a row when I'm trying to sign the grocery delivery paperwork, it's music to my ears that I wasn't sure I'd ever have the opportunity to hear.

I also love how Colin narrates the world around us. "Tree, Vroom, baby, buf-fly, house, bunny, puppy."  His vocabulary is growing so much everyday.  While he isn't using sentences, he does string words together intentionally. "Buh-bye, jammies, in, grandma's" combined with hand motions and props conveyed to me that he'd like to pack to go to grandma's house for example.  

Another favorite activity is copying daddy's words.  They did the entire alphabet twice yesterday!

It's hard for me to believe, but someday I will have to work hard to remember his adorable toddler voice and careful mispronunciations. I try to remember to enjoy every second of it right now.
