He's going to be 3 in October and still only has a handful of words, usually preferring to point at things with a 'ugh' sound until you pick the correct object, which results in a 'ugh' at a slightly lower pitch.
For the past year or so he has a 'ugh' sound for:
- 'ugh that one'
- 'UGH, I SAID THAT ONE'
- 'ugh, yes that is the one I wanted, took you long enough didn't it?'
- 'UGH, no I do NOT want to be strapped into this car seat'
- 'urg, this is pleasing to me'
Recently though he has begun to experiment with other sounds - though his success is somewhat arbitrary.
Instead of 'play' he can only say 'pay', which can lead to some embarrassment as we leave the local coffee shop with him shouting 'Mummy pay! Mummy Pay!' repeatedly.
Another couple of words that he's finally managed to accomplish are 'wee' and 'poo'. Handy you may think. Not so when these are his words of choice when he's annoyed with you. 'Mummy wee wee poo poo head, URG', again shouted repeatedly in the most public place he can find.
This week however he has come out with his first ever properly spoken phrase. Naturally I am as proud as Mrs. Middleton sitting beside the Queen on her way to Ascot.
So what is this wondrous phrase he has managed to master?
'Oh yeah baby'
The girls are gonna go wild.
