One of the things I love about having a toddler is how quickly his language is developing. I mean, this little person talks all the time, but I'm so impressed on how much he understands.

The Targo and I have never talked "baby talk" to him, except for saying mama and dada. He's come up with a lot of words on his own. Like I've said before, he calls his pacifier a "Bow" (like OW, not OH), he calls his grandpas Ti-Dah and Baca, and calls his diaper a bah-poo (we think this was a consonant issue, where he was mixing up d and b, and not able to pronounce the "er" sound).

Recently, I have become "mommy" instead of "mama," which makes me a bit sad. I'm even sadder to think about when he starts pronouncing everything correctly. Especially the following:
  • Mee - Knee...
  • Peeba - Pizza (he's starting to say pizza most of the time)
  • And talking about himself in the third person when he gets mad. "Mama, Nathan hurt my mee!"

Why do they have to grow up so fast?

He's growing up so fast! Ack! I still remember your posts when he was a wee baby... naw. I think mommy is especially cute, maybe because my kids will never say it that way with a sweet little American accent. Instead, it will be MUMMY. ;-)

They are growing up so fast! I was going over some of my posts trying to compare AJU5 and AJU6, and I can't believe how much has changed in 2 years!
