Charlie's New Word

Charlie has a pretty limited vocabulary at the moment. He just doesn't feel the need to talk a lot and since he is not a crying, screaming, frustrated non-speaker, I haven't worried too much. He can call for me or his dad, he yells some derivative of "Calvin" and "Henry" (usually when we are calling them), he says "No" very authoritatively, and has started saying, "Heeeey!" when someone does something he edoesn't like. Which is hilarious, I might add.

Today especially, however, he has been "chattering," trying out all kinds of vowels and consonants and multi-syllable explanations of things we can't really understand. But one word he has clearly said over and over again, for some unknown reason. So we spent the better part of an hour trying to get him to say it again and keep his excited older brothers out of the picture, because it is stinkin' cute. (If I do say so myself.) Finally, we achieved a sufficiently short, sweet, and clear example of his new word. I promise it will make you smile. Almost as goofily as it made me smile.

(Disclaimer: Yes, my toddler gets ahold of markers sometimes. Yes, my husband does call our children, "Dude." And yes, my hair is getting ridiculously long. But really, you should just notice my baby's cute little voice.)

awwww that was adorable!!!!! mine has started to waking up and saying "happy happy happy" as he sits in his bed waiting for us to come get him! I love toddlers (ok, so this minute I love toddlers....I might change my mind again in 10 minutes when I find that he stuffed his blankie in the toliet or something else)

I never knew you had a blog. Now I will have to spend the next 3 years reading all of it and then I will post a comment. My aren't you the author, I am going to plagiarize (Bet you didn't think I could spell that!) some of your blog and make millions for myself. You have a great sense of humor, you remind me of someone I know...um..who could it be??? Oh, could it be...um.....Uncle Scott??!!!

Awwwwwwww. The only thing funnier/cuter than him saying happy is your big goofy grin.

I tried all night to get Danyo to say Happy because it's so dang cute. He's more likely to give me the finger though.

I'm all sorts of curious about who Anon is above me...very funny. And true.

I LOVE it! He has such a great little personality! How are you guys doing with all the warring over natural gas between Ukraine and Russia? I think of you all the time, and am finally thrilled to have a computer again! Two months is too long to go without...
