The Workings In The Mind Of Baby Einstein

CONNOR SAID HIS FIRST COMPLETE SENTENCE THIS MORNING!!!!!!!!!!

He said "Daddy, what's 'at?"

How cool is that? I am doing the funky strut this morning (quite a turn around from yesterday - and thanks to those of you who chimed in - I appreciate the lurrrvvvv)

This is a true milestone because to Connor:

Everything liquid is "Milk". He takes a bath in "milk", he never drinks anything other than "milk" and he even pees "milk". ..and the cup that he drinks out of is also "milk", and so is the cup I rinse him off with in the tub. So let me see here...My son drinks milk from the milk, pees milk, takes a bath in milk and gets rinsed of with the milk in the milk. ...but he doesn't just say "MILK" it's "Mil-milk". What can I say...my child is gifted.

Everything with wheels is a "Truck" (beep beep truck!) It doesn't matter if it's a bicycle - hell, it could be a UNIcycle and he'd still call it a truck. Correction is futile. "Look Connor! A bus!" "No! Mommy. TRUCK!" and in all honesty he really can't say "truck" all that well. He doesn't have the teeth for it yet - so it's really a "CRUCK" - so sayeth Connor and his word is absolute. Sorry yall. You'll have to correct your vocabulary from here.

All animals, with the exception of puppies and kitties (he calls the kitties "Maows"), are "bears". It could be an armadillo or a komoto dragon and he'd still call it a "bear". OH! but we have progressed to "bird" and when the birds sing they go "feet feet".

I'm trying to get him to say "I love you". I'm constantly whispering it to him, calling it to him, telling it to him, kissing it to him...and he just nods his head....like he already knows that I love him and that's all that the universe needs. He may be right...but I can't wait to hear it. He will at least blow me a kiss and I do loves me some baby kisses.

So there you have it folks. Connor is exactly 22 months old today - and he said his first complete sentence. Finally.

Hold your applause please....we're getting ready for the potty training thing.

I love those baby moments. I miss them. But not enough to pop out another one... yet. :)

Lauren said "dada" first, then "uh-oh" and THEN came "mama." Traitor.

Ashlyn used to look around and say "Fuck! Fuck! Ribbit ribbit!" That still makes me chuckle.

I just want to give Connor big squishy hugs. He'd probably squirm and say his first cuss words at me tho. lol

Thanks for the post! I have always wanted to know about the transition from mama to "How about another cookie, mother?"

Also, I hear milk baths are awesome!

Awww that's so cute. I remember when Jordon went from 'ma' to 'mama' to 'mommy' and now it is getting to be 'mom' OMG he's getting to big. Hold on to all these cute little baby words. Cause the time flys by.

Congratulations.

Doodlebug didn't talk, other than to say Mom, until he was three. He'd point and grunt and that was it.

Or worse, he'd tell me he was hungry by fetching a package of bologna out of the fridge, putting it on my pillow under my nose and staring at me until I woke up. Creepy and disgusting.

But at 3, full-on adult sentences came out.

Precious moments!

My oldest called steak "chicken" for the lognest time. Cracked us up.

Misha - HOLY CRAP GIRL. You've been a gone a while. It's good to see you back.

Jeff - You'll be seeing that for yourself in a few years. I hear your wife wants to start a family. May I offer one word of advise? Help change the diapers man. She'll love you more, and more and more and more. I speak from experience.

Jazz - Lauren (who is 8) won't call me Mom or Mama. She says they are babish and that it takes more "verbalization skills" (where she got that I don't know) to say Mommy so that's what she's gonna call me. Sigh. I would rather be plan 'ol Mom than Mommy.

Nikki - Connor saw some construction trucks the other morning. They were earth movers - back hoe etc. He saw them diggin' holes and said "bad cruck mommy, bad cruck" LOL

Mind - Welcome! LOL the balogna thing is kinda creepy, but Lauren used to do that whole staring at me until I woke up thing. God I hated that.

CeCe - LOL. Connor calls everything by 3 very important words to define his catagories for them - Cracker, Cookie, E-eats. I guess I know where his priorities lie huh LOL

Sweet! That's awesome. Bust out the baby book...

No! Not potty training!

We still can't understand 3/4 of what Bennett says, but that's okay. (He's now 29 months) He's got a big brother who could talk the ear off a corn stalk.

Yeah, Connor!

W00T! Go Connor!

It's funny - you can't wait for them to start talking and saying whole sentences... then one day you look at them and just wish they'd be quiet for once. I was totally shocked the first time I thought that. However, the gems that fall off my son's tongue more than make up for the occasional yammer-day.

congratulations to Connor!!! May he one day be loquacious.

Very cool. Potty training goes much faster if you duct tape them to the seat. Not that I have, I'm just saying....

Well...I guess that's nice. I was kinda hoping his first sentence would be "Where's Fab?"

Way to go Connor...

And as my daughter is 'testing'my husband on Beatle lyrics while I right this... I am thinking back to her first sentences...
She would toddle over to our front screen door, pull herself up and greet all passerbys with Hi,hi hi...
You could not see her bald head...
And when the passerby's would finally relent and repeat 'Hi'
She would then say Bye... bye... Bye ....
I would laugh as it seemed as though torture for some...
But all would answer...
All would end up saying hello in spite of themselves...

We've finally entered potty training camp with Baby. Good grief, she's cute! Well, except that she likes to run around with her goods hanging out.

I just love this age.

Congratulations! I remember my daughter's speech was a little slower than my son's who spoke complete sentences by the time he was 10 months old! It was great but after awhile the "what's that?" to everything was enough to drive me crazy!

Congratulations to Conner and parents! Good luck on the potty training. Been there, done that but it was so long ago I don't remember much about it!

LOVE your blog and your writing! I've spent the last couple of days just reading your archives! Got you bookmarked under my "BEST" folder now. If I ever figure out how to put up a side-bar, you're there! I'll be back often!

I'm with you. I have a 20mo. old (a/k/a Baby) who only grunts and groans...yet somehow we ALL know what he wants...he's got maybe (and this is a stretch)....3 words..."moh" (more)..."pea" (please) and ub ("up")...and he's DRIVING ME CRAZY because I'm not sure whether to STRESS or just relax b/c he's #3 and he totally doesn't NEED to talk. Ugh.

Mama - done

Mama C - your oldest sounds like my oldest. I love her deeply, but sometimes I wish she'd hush and give me some piece and quiet.

Sayre - I've said that many times about Lauren LOL.

Carm - *puts duct tape on shopping list* thanks for the tip.

Mr Fab - um yeah....I was totally expecting that.lol

Dann-that would be much better than having him pee on me when I change his diaper...like this morning.

Pend - those are the best memories aren't they? The sweet ones. Makes you fill up inside don't they.

Jenny - I have a cousin who is grown now, but I distinctly remember when he was little running around repeating the phrase "See my root, see my root" I'll never forget that. It was my first experience around someone who was being potty trained and it scared me LOL

Annie - the whole "what's 'at" is already driving me crazy.

Sassy - Welcome, and Thanks. I had wondered who that was lurking in my archives LOL. Stop by anytime.

ITTOM - Welcome! 3? Girl, you're more woman than I am. 2 is plenty enough for me. I'll pray for you though....cause you're gonna need it if your 3 are anything like my 2.LOL
