Goodnight Moon

Sawyer is talking.  How is that possible, he's only 15 months old?  He can say "dahn" (down), "eet-eet" (eat, eat), "uh" (up), "ba-oon" (balloon), "booh" (book), and "da" (maybe daddy?).  I can't imagine where he got his inspiration considering his brother talks non-stop.  There is still the pointing and grunting but he makes definite distinguishable noises that mimic words.  He's a hoot.  My personal favorite is "hee-haw," as in the sound a donkey makes.  It took Wes and I forever to figure out where he picked that up.  It wasn't until he said it around my mom that she told us that's in one of the nursery rhymes/songs she plays in her car.  He does it on command and it never gets old.

If he can't say the word, he'll gladly point to show you what he's talking about.  In that same vein, if you ask him to show you something, he'll happily oblige and gets it right 9 out of 10 times.  We were outside practicing soccer and Sawyer discovered the bright moon in the sky.  He walked in that direction, pointing and grunting the whole way.  He stuck his hands up, as if to say, "Pick me up so I can touch it."

Not quite, buddy.  He was frustrated that he couldn't get to it and wouldn't stop with one try.  He's also a persistent little booger!  So now we can add "mohn" to the list of words.  What's next?  Encyclopedia?


  1. Shawn and I are amazed daily. I think it's cool that while they can communicate a TON to you, they understand SOOOOO much more.

  2. That picture is so precious! I love that he tried to grab the moon :)

  3. I love this one, particularly that last photo. My boy is at this same stage, and it's just amazing how much they can & want to communicate without having many words yet.
