Henry moments don't happen too often yet. Usually, when asked to say something like "Mama" he responds with an energetic "Duhaaah!" a la Timmy from South Park.
We keep telling him the names of things: Cup, Fingers, Ears, Toes, Aubergine... the usuals. He, however, is taking his own sweet time in giving us some satisfaction.
Baa! = Ball
Ksssh = Kitty
Dada = Dada (He mastered that one a long time ago.)
Hi = Hi (whaddayaknow!)
Recently he was sitting in his highchair having some lunch. I had been watching him and he looked straight at me, pondered for a few seconds and said, "Mamamamama!"
It was awesome!
Audrey has been up to her usual verbal tricks:
We were at Walmart and she saw a display with tricycles on them.
She ran over to them: I want to buy this.
Mom: Do you have $40?
Aud looks at her hands: No.
Mom: Well then?
Later on, she saw something else she wanted. The conversation was exactly the same except that she also looked inside her pockets to see if she had any money. Cute!
I was filing my nails recently and Audrey pointed to the nail file: What's that?
Mom: A nail file.
Aud: It helps your lips to grow?
At the dinner table to the tune of Old McDonald: I love butter on my bread, E - I - E - I - O!
Imagine when you change your mind mid-word: I have to go poo - otty....
Until next time... :)
