My son has been vocalising more and more these days. With both my kids I used the same phrases over and over to the point that those phrases becoming one word expressions. Leif has been repeating many of these phrases for a while now but it’s starting to become clearer and said with intention. “Whasthis” “More” “Mamaup” “Poopindare” “Isyummy” “Thereitis”
Today he pointed to the phone and said “Gam-pa”. Lily calls my dad enough that I guess I shouldn’t be surprised. My dad was more than pleased to hear his grandson say it though when we called him. Leif has been saying “nur” when he want’s to nurse and even points to or drags the nursing pillow over to me. I especially love the excited “da” and “dada” accompanied by arms flailing about when my husband walks in the yard.
These first words aren’t remarkable in and of themselves but it’s such a joy to witness his continued growth and change.
I bet he’s going for the knives!
