out of the mouths of babes

October 5, 2013 at 9:51 pm 5 comments

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?

    Jac – it’s had about 4 million hits – I think E’s done half of those! (yes trained to hit repeat on the laptop :o)

    Dad – our little parrot says all sorts. Today ”draw it Mumma, lion, rarrrrr”

I love how an ordinary moment frozen in time by the camera can actually reveal so much. Luca is all about inhabiting his body and jumping, running and climbing. Euan is all about the quirkiness, curiosity and inventions. There's more about these best friend brothers on the blog in this month's #siblingsproject post #gloucesterlife #nipitinthebudblog
This little one is negotiating hard to get out of food shopping with me. Even saying that poor Daddy will be hungry if we don't restock the fridge isn't working. Apparently Daddy will be fine eating a wooden mushroom while L watches telly! #gloucesterlife #nipitinthebudblog #toddlerantics💜
#mischiefmakers #summerreadingchallenge starts today - you can find out more at your local library. E was excited to sign up and work towards earning his medal. There are some great activities taking place in Gloucestershire libraries this summer. #welovereadingbooks #gloucesterlife #nipitinthebudblog
I'd love a packet of crisps the size of a pillow case to make the same toddler-to-Doritos bag ratio. #gloucesterlife #nipitinthebudblog #toddlerliferocks
Love Saturday mornings. E's busy creating already with @geomagworld #gloucesterlife #nipitinthebudblog
Beach buddies #lightroomstoriescontest #adobelightroom #bestfriendbrothers #nipitinthebudblog
Happy memories of our Cornwall break last month at the start of this super sunny heatwave season. #lightroomstoriescontest #adobelightroom #nipitinthebudblog
Our first "soaked on the school run" selfie in a long long time! So many smiles and "yay, it's raining" from everyone in the playground ☔😄 #gloucesterlife #nipitinthebudblog
I think Luca was channelling his inner Monet when he painted his duck money box #2yearoldartist #gloucesterlife #nipitinthebudblog
I love finding pictures on my phone I'd forgotten about that remind me of a really special time with my boys (the Project Pilgrim celebration at @GlosCathedral a couple of weeks ago) #gloucesterlife #nipitinthebudblog
Love this kids creativity - there's only so many times you can tolerate your little brother interrupting your game of giant Connect 4 after all! #gloucesterlife #nipitinthebudblog
L fell asleep in the car today and stayed asleep when I got him out. I took this picture thinking I'd savour the moment and then wake him so that bedtime wouldn't be messy but just look at that face, I couldn't. So I enjoyed the cuddle instead and he's now snoring blissfully beside me again. Trust your baby, he knows what he needs 😴 #gloucesterlife #nipitinthebudblog
