New words!

Well, I think we've officially stepped out of the baby phase and into toddlerhood. My little miracles are speaking and expressing themselves wholeheartedly. Elizabeth is into the "I DO!" of it all. Last night, I came downstairs to find my mom and husband sitting in the living room, pillows piled up all around one of the chairs, and the kids flinging themselves off, a la suicide mission. Figgy stood at the edge of the chair and yelled, "NONNNNNNE, TWOOOOOOO, TREEEEEEE!" and then she flung herself into the pillows, howling with laughter. The Professor stood on the edge, squealing and clapping furiously before throwing himself into the air. He has a pillow that has baseballs, footballs, basketballs and soccer balls on it and he brought it to me and said, "Ball!" Our word counts are as follows:

  • One (NONE!)
  • Two
  • Tree (Three)
  • No
  • I do
  • Oh no
  • Bye-bye
  • Daddy
  • Mommy
  • Oh boy!
  • I, too (I love you, too)
The Professor
  • Ball
  • Stuck (his favorite, by far...everything is stuck!)
  • No
  • Bye-bye
  • Mommy
  • Daddy
  • Truck
  • Dog
  • Kitty
  • Assorted animal sounds
Just when I think I'm never going to be able to snuggle up with one of them, again, Figgy will run to me and leap into my arms, kiss me on the lips and say, "I, too!" That's Figgy-speak for I love you. My little man still loves to snuggle up in my arms and suck his thumb. Can I admit to you all that I secretly hope he continues doing this well into high school? ;)

We are starting to say words, too. It's really wild to hear stuff come out of their mouths that I can understand. My daughter can articulate much better than my son. No surprise there.

It's fun isnt' it?

It is fun! I love that I'm able to understand them so much better than others, too. Sometimes my husband just looks at them like they have two heads and has to ask me what they're telling him.

Can you believe we're at this point, already?!?!
