Words

We had our 6 month post-placement visit today. 6 months! Can you believe that? Our social worker asked me how many words Daniel was saying and I wasn't sure. I guessed 20 but I don't actually know. It made me think that I should make a list and what better place to do it than in his baby book. Yeah...not so much. I'm putting them here so I can transfer them to his baby book someday before he has his own babies (and not a day sooner).

no! (also: no, no, no)

dop: stop
hi
bye
mow: more
mi: milk

water (can't even write how he says it but I know it when I hear it)

do: done
Ando: Andrew
mama

bu: buckle (he likes to snap his own car seat buckle)

bu: bubbles--you have to be there to know which one he's saying. lol
heyyooooo: hello

G and Z (sung loudly while Andrew is singing the alphabet song)

gu: go

nigh-nigh

og: dog

wha: what

wu: want (he frequently strings this together with more and milk. lol. wu mow mi)
yeah: yep, he says yeah. And nods his head up and down vigorously...especially when asked if he wants to eat and/or watch Fresh Beat Band)
abba: Yo Gabba, Gabba

ah: cereal bar

ee: eat
amma: amen


and last, but definitely not least...

ta-da!


he also has a hilarious little song that he sings (with a funny little lisp-sound going on) that is supposed to be the William Tell Overture. It's what I sing/hum when I give him a 'horsey-ride' on my leg...which should be the size of a toothpick after bouncing his 36 lb. booty on it day after day. He climbs onto my leg and sings his little song to get me moving.

Isn't he ridiculously cute?
