Learning to Talk

Abraham has begun to have some intelligible speech. It has been fun to see what he says. We've heard "Dad" and "Dadda" several times. I've seen him go up to an outlet and then tell himself "nononono". He says "yea" and "go" and he still "vrrrrooms" as he plays with his cars and trucks. On Tuesday I was at my sister's house and she said my name. Abe was sitting on my lap and clear as a bell repeated, "Kim". Tami and I just looked at each other...confirming that we both heard it. I was telling Ken this the next day and Abe looked at me and again said, "Kim". Great, he's just shy of 10 months and already losing respect for his mother!

What a smartie!!! Of course he is, you are his mother! :)
But seriously, that is great speech for a 10 month old! Seriously, you've got a smart cookie!

I just can't imagine him talking!! I know in my head that Elise was about that age, but still TALKING? I'm trying to decide whether I should offer congratulations or condolances :)

Anyway, now you know why grown adults go around calling their spouses "Mom" or "Dad". It all starts as modeling for the kids and then becomes habit!!

This is such an exciting time, once he starts talking there is no turning back! Can't wait to see some video of the cutie.

To cute. I love hearing babies repeat what they hear.
PS on my blog you said you thought are sons were pretty close in age, so I looked on you blog and saw when Abe was born, and yes they are super close in age. Benson was born on Oct 9th (His uncle Gary's Birthday)

What a precocious youngster!

Maybe his terrible twos won't be as bad if he has great language skills. You can hope, right?
