Lost in Translation

Ian is learning so many new things constantly. It's so crazy how much and how quickly babies change. It's really amazing to watch him!!

He can now touch parts of his body when we ask him where they are (which is so cute!). He will touch his nose (sometimes up it), mouth, ear, tongue, feet. I'll try to post some video of him doing this. His vocabulary is also increasing...

Ian............................Translation

dada...................................daddy
mama................................mommy
gigee..................................kitty
ou-shy...............................outside
nigh-nigh..........................night night
shooz.................................shoes
pss.....................................please (although MUCH more reluctantly lately)
aah-K................................okay
hhhi...................................hi (this is when he plays with the phone)
ymumym.........................yum,yum,yum
szat...................................what's that? (accompanied with a point)
tee....................................tree
ball....................................ball (very clear - yea!)
jssss..................................juice
buh...................................bye
ahh gah.........................all gone (SO CUTE - he holds his palms up)

There are a few other words he's said on occasion, but not sure if he was just copying us or really saying them yet.

He's also getting more frustrated lately, which is trying on us but I know it means he's maturing too. When he's done with his drink he'll bring it to me and hand it to me for a refill, but instead of saying "pss" he says "uuuuhhh". I KNOW he can say please. He went through many weeks saying it to us when he wanted another bite of our food or for us to open something. But now all of a sudden when I ask him to say please when getting him more to drink he gets mad and just keeps handing me the drink over and over again and saying "uhhh" with increasing whining. We're battling! I don't know if he's just being stubborn or what.

He's definitely becoming his own little person, and I know that it must be pretty frustrating to not be able to fully communicate your wants and needs.

Everyday is an amazing adventure!
I sure love that little guy!!!
