Coming up on 17.5 months, and Carson's language acquisition prowess never ceases to amaze us. He's now reached the ability to narrate pretty much everything that goes on in his day. And he does. It might go something like this:
"Hungwy. Eat. Food. Milk! Good." [Good is one of his favorite words. He uses it for all food and drink items consumed, and also some things that shouldn't be consumed, like puddle water and cat food.]
"Puhse [mom's]. Get it! Chair. Cwimbing. Out [everything that used to be in it]. Waddet! [wallets are extra exciting]. Phone! Hewwo? Down. Sitting. Book. Wead! Side-side. [He wants to go outside.] Shoes. Jacket. Snowing!"
Every day he uses a new word or two or five that I didn't even know he was learning. Onion, olive, stuck, tray, hammer, knight are some that appeared in the last couple of days. But this morning took the cake. Bubba was massaging my shoulders and I said "Thank you". Carson chimed in with "g'Wehcome!" Then as his parents chuckled and gazed at him admiringly, he modestly grinned and added, "Dohble"--adorable!
