Evan is Talking!

I mean, he isn't telling us long and convoluted stories but he is slowly starting to use his words (which makes him less frustrated and us less concerned about why our brialliant son isn't talking).  Here are the words he currently says (that I can remember):

  1. Dada (been saying this for as long as I can remember... like last week... just kidding)
  2. Mama (started saying this once I gave birth and I wasn't around him 24/7 - seriously added to my guilt when I would hear him calling my name but I was breastfeeding or doing something with Chloe)
  3. Miss D (this is the woman who is watching him whil I recover from surgery)
  4. Chlo-Chlo (Chloe)
  5. Charlie (which sounds a lot like Chlo-Chlo... this would be Miss D's outdoor cat that Evan helps to find when he goes and visits Miss D's house)
  6. Bel-Bel (Bella cat)
  7. Bubba (old man Bubba cat)
  8. Pool (referring to his blow-up pool)
  9. Grill (which sounds a lot like "pool" unless you listen closely)
  10. Milk
  11. Bowl (which he pronounces the same way the spanish commentator pronounces "goal" for soccer... so it sounds like "boooooooooowl")
  12. Ice (yes, he says it, he knows what it is, he knows where it lives, and he wants to play with it - oddly this was one of his first words)
  13. Egg
  14. Boo-Boo (which is almost always his skinned knees)
  15. Boom
  16. Bad Boom (what Miss D taught him to refer to something dangerous)
  17. Hot (but he won't say cold... he understands it, he just won't say it)
  18. Uh-oh (is this a word?)
I'm sure I've missed some words but they are so random that they are hard to remember.  He still signs for some things like: "all done," "eat," "more," and "open." 

On another note, Miss Chloe found her thumb today.  She seemed to really like it, sucked on it for about 30 seconds and then promptly lost it again.  I'm cheering her on since she won't take a pacifier and my nipple can't be her pacifier forever.

  1. Life sounds pretty busy around your place. Of course brilliant Evan is talking. He just decided to do it on his own time. Keep posting pics!
