First Words

Will has always been a HUGE talker. At 15 months (which is what Catie is today), he had about 150 words- including words like sunshine, Chicago, sweatshirt, vacuum, and Dwight. (yes, Dwight, as in Dwight from The Office...Dave set his image as the background on our computer and Will was interested) He knew all our family members' names. He could tell me what he wanted to eat by saying "applesauce", "sausage", "yogurt", and "hot dog". I realize this is unusual for a 15-month-old, but it doesn't make it any less shocking or frustrating when your 2nd, an average child, has to whine and point to let you know what she wants.

Catie has about 15 words, none of which are all that clear. Sure, you can't miss "uh oh" or "icky". "Daa-y" is a constant. "Buuuu" is Burt and "Dada" is Will (?). "Ba" is bath and "Bah-y" is Barry, her bear. Today she added "ca ca" to the list. Can you guess what it is? She loves it, and it's something I had every day of my pregnancy with her and every day while nursing for over a year.

Yep, one of her first words is coffee. Grandpa Curt will be so proud!

Well--since I'm the one who thinks everything about your kids is interesting and cute, it's very fitting that I'd be the first to visit and post a comment! I love this blog! (OK, Captain Obvious)

Caca is something else entirely in our household. I was a little worried there for a moment when you said she loves it. I was thinking you were having some poop mural creation at your house...

My boys just stare at fans... I thought for sure they would be able to return some phone calls for me by now.

At least one of her firsts isn't "ja-jammit" like her Uncle Aaron's was. A small vocabulary isn't always a bad thing!
