Baby babble

I’d like to take a moment of silence for, well… silence

My son has become a blabbermouth, among other things (expert crawler, good cruiser, beginning stander, moderate eater). There is a frank determination in his speech. He gestures, makes eye contact, bobs his head as though he is making a point that you certainly should be aware of. Once in a while he even says, “uh-oh,” though he doesn’t use it in context – at least not that we are aware of.

I have, for you, an example. One of his favorite places to talk is the window. I have a two-minute clip of The Baby blabbing away, looking at the Real Estate section of the paper, blabbing some more, looking over at my husband who was recording it for future bribes posterity, and then yelling at the camera. I’ve managed to cut it down to the funniest 13 seconds, including an endearing shriek / tongue-thrust combo.

He is so trying to say something... that is precious. Oh yeah, great stuff to bring out when he starts dating.

Now see, I totally heard "You get out of here" I think he was dismissing daddy. :) Totally sounds like my little man. My mom thinks when he actually starts talking we are going to get in trouble when we don't know what he said. He pauses for responses and everything when he talks.
