Little Bit O' Lingo

"W-O-R-D up! W-O-R-D up!" ~ Cameo

Q has always been verbal. From the first week we brought him home, he liked to grunt and gurgle up a storm. And I can recall a very animated discussion he initiated at a mere two months of age. As time went on, his babbling vocabulary grew and grew. Q loves to hear himself speak. But he hadn't ventured into the grown human English world, not even for a regular "Mama" or "Daddy", until a few weeks ago

It's pretty exciting to finally hear your child speak words that you can somewhat understand. Even if they are the same few words. Over and over and over again. With lots of pointing. Sometimes in your eye.

Q's current favorites (in approximate order of appearance):

Ball (recently from Baaa? to Baaall!)
Door (sounds kind of like D'oh, but without the frustration)
No (sometimes interchanged with Don't)
Mum-mum (I believe he's addressing me, mainly when whining)
Flower (mostly Flaaah)
Fan (mostly Faaa)
Daddy (emphasis on the Deee!)
Cock (No idea -- seems to have multiple meanings, from lightswitch to car driving next to us)
Kitty (emphasis on the Teee! Still hoping he reworks Elroy in some fun way soon)

New words seem to be appearing at an almost daily rate now. Will try to get some video up soon!


  1. HAHAHAHA! Video please! So precious! I can't wait for Elroy's nickname too! :)

  2. Still working on video, but in the meantime I thought of another favorite word.

    Ewo? which is his way of answering anything resembling a phone (aka Hello)

  3. Hi! Stopping by from MBC. Love your blog.

    Have a nice day!

  4. OMG, MDL!! You've been a busy girl on the blog tip & I just caught up on your last 4 or 5 entries! Love it! Must remember to check back more frequently! Hope Q's toofs are feeling better! xox
