Isaiah has hit a big jump forward in his learning to speak. He suddenly jumped to trying to say words even if he can't really say it right. It's a very exciting bit of progress. The other day we were walking in a parking lot and he said, "Ho me ha!" So I held his hand. Another day we were at the store and he saw a Diego backpack and said, "ba pa!". So what could I do but buy him the backpack? Like I said, this is really very exciting.
But there are still a few adorable Isaiah-isms that I know I should break him of using, but they're just so cute that I have a hard time finding the motivation.
ew ew ew ew = Diego
ha ha = dog
ho ho = Christmas or Santa
eh me = help me
wo mo = one more (usually said with one pudgy finger extended to illustrate)
I'm rather desperate for him to learn to speak, but at the same time I'll miss these little things. I guess that's true for any little person who's growing up. You always miss the phase they're just growing out of (well, most of them anyway).
And while we're talking talking, here's the first 30 words that Isaiah really learned to say correctly:
Mama, Dada, wa-wa (water), bubbles, bye bye, nigh-nigh(t), one more, me, you, more, no, whoa, yeah, ball, uh oh, hi, ow, wow, boo, hot, achoo, what, why, baby, pee, poo, new, no way, go, one.
