We are loving how much Andrew is talking nowadays. He's not using full sentences yet, of course, but he has tons of words and puts two or three together at times. Naturally, he doesn't pronounce them all quite right. Sometimes that can be adorable like when he asks for a kiss ("kees") or when he loudly and whole-heartedly explains "Ohhh Meeeennn" if something goes wrong. Or how he says Thank You ("kaykou"). And Cheerios is "yos". How cute is that?
Sometimes, though, it can be flat out embarrassing!
Here are a few examples that have made me blush over the past few weeks:
1) He's been loving him some blueberries lately. You best get them for him on his first request. If not, his calm request for "boobies" becomes a very loud demand for "BOOOBIESSSS!!!". Yes, friends, I guess the obsession with "boobies" starts young ;)
2) He also has a thing for clocks. He doesn't pronounce that correctly. It's bad enough by itself, but at the airport the other day there where big clocks hanging down from the ceiling. He thought this was great and excitedly yelled, "big cocks" all throughout the airport. Yeahhhhh.....
3) Another thing he points out every time he's sees one is a flag. He doesn't pronounce the L in that word either. We live on a military post, so that word is flying out of his mouth quite a few times throughout the day. The best is when he finds the velcro flag from Trey's uniform laying around. He knows it belongs on his uniform and walks around the house saying, "Daddy's fag". *Just for the record, I hate that word.. no.. despise that word in real life. But you know it's a little funny coming out of a almost 2-year olds mouth when he doesn't have malicious intent behind it.*
That's about all. So far. I'm sure there is much more to come and I know every parent goes though it. So share some of your stories! Give me a good laugh!
