Jack was up a 6 (* read: Mommy and Jack were up at 6*) this morning and Samantha decided to join him at 7:15. After two minutes of playing with him, she screams from his room, "Mommy! Jack is awake!" Oh dear! That did NOT make Mommy happy as she KNOWs she is not to go in his room in the morning unless she KNOWs Mommy is in there. And then, to wake Mommy up by screaming at her...NOT GOOD! So, we had a rough start and then at breakfast (her favorite place) she just was irritating us, although not on purpose. So, after fussing at her for a minute, I just looked at Michael and said, "We just need to stand down." I used this terminology because it was fresh on my mind (we watched TWO Battle Star Gallactica episodes last night on DVD) and because I knew she didn't know what that meant, so we could back off without loosing face. Michael heard and agreed and from then on we had a GREAT day!
Jack's new words:
- Ba -- Gramps
- PLEEEEEEESSSE -- Please, Mommy may I have some gum?
- Blue balls -- blueberries
- Hep -- Help
- Car wet -- This morning as he was trying to get in his "Cozy Coupe" he looked at me and said this. I was amazed!
- Snaak -- Gerber baby fruit snacks
- Caker -- Cracker
- Saw -- the power tool
- Fie-fiss -- Butterfly
- Flush -- like flush the potty
- Dink -- Drink
That's all I can think of for now. There's nothing really that he can't say...it's just that some things have meaning while others are just repeating the syllables. This is also a stage where he comes to us and takes our hand to show us what he wants! AWESOME!!!Hope we are able to do something fun outside tomorrow, this crazy "I'm might rain any minute" weather has been tough. Maybe we'll hit their new sand box Santa brought?!!
Happy New Year, everyone!
