out of the mouths of babes

It’s amusing how forthright little ones can be once they start talking, issuing orders to ‘move‘, ‘sit there‘, ‘read it‘, ‘get it‘.  It’s super cute watching E’s language unfold: he pronounces almost all words so clearly it’s strange to think only a few months ago we were ”wallering wowers’ and ‘eatin olibs’‘.  Below are just some of the phrases he comes out with regularly (click on the Wordle to enlarge for easier reading)

It’s amazing being able to have conversations with E, offering choices and seeing the determination with which he makes himself understood.  If you happened to overhear him excitedly saying ‘‘want to look the babies’‘ you’d understandably be puzzled.  Mumma on the other hand simply smiles in anticipation of the big grin and funny dance he’ll be doing within seconds of these Evian babies advert starting.

    How about last Wednesday, tapped on garage door, and said
    “knock knock who’s there”. What else have you been teaching him?

#onefromthearchives in the days when I had time to experiment with preserve recipes and create edible gifts
#nipitinthebudblog #gloucesterlife #chutneyaddict #allotmentgardening #foragersdelight #preservemaking So totally stoked to receive my #thisisbritainphotobook this morning.  My gut feeling was right - bedtime stories with our Lumie bed bug was the photo chosen by #rankin for inclusion.  Overjoyed to see my beautiful boys in print

I say grew but I actually just forgot about them and they did this all by themselves!
