I should not have worried: there was NO chance THIS child was EVER going to be ignored or left out of anything!
I just LOVE the cute way babies say things when they are learning how to talk. I know it has to pass as they learn the correct way to speak, but it's so precious that I don't want to forget! I tried to write down everything Joseph said one morning, during our normal routine of getting him up, dressed, and fed, and heading out for the morning.
*Out Mommy! Out Daddy! (He was awake and wanted out of his crib.)
*Ake up you? (You're awake, Mom?)
*All done sleeping!
*Off shirt...hand out. (changing his clothes)
*Hershey kiss? (He wanted a Hershey kiss....not that I had any stashed in his room for emergencies or anything....)
*Last night...bubbles...out pop pop popping!
*Naked me. (still changing clothes)
*Hugging you. (giving me a hug)
*Heaven mean? (What does Heaven mean?)
*Dy! (Dry) Baby's clothes! (He was excited that the baby doll's clothes were clean and dry; I had washed them.)
*THIS shirt. (choosing his shirt)
*Baby clothes dry!
*Shirt off, shirt on.
*Baby powder! (Don't forget the baby powder!)
*Clothes off! OFF! Shirt off! (He wanted his clothes off...now that they were finally ON.)
*Help, Mommy, me falling!
*Uh, oh, Mommy! (his snaps came undone)
*Cancakes? (He wanted pancakes for breakfast.)
*Out, Mommy! Carry me! (He was ready to be done changing clothes.)
*Cat in, cat out. (The cat was coming in and out of his room.)
*Cue Cue's shoes! (He liked his Blue's Clues shoes and wanted to wear them.)
*Puppy! Falled down! Puppy falling!
*Puppy up. (His puppy fell, and I picked it up for him.)
*Sugar? (He loved sugar on his pancakes/waffles.)
*Mine? (talking about his shoe) ON foot! ON foot!
*NO feet! NO FEET! (He changed his mind about wearing his shoes.)
*Pull out! Pull out that! (His shoelace had gone inside his shoe.)
*Go out! Carry me! Hershey kiss?
*Deef derky (He also wanted beef jerky.)
*Heart waffle sugar on it.
*'Orms come? 'Orms come? (We were waiting for our composting worms to come.)
*Oatmeal too! Oatmeal too! (still choosing breakfast)
*Fiss, Mommy! Fiss, Mommy! (goldfish crackers)
*Airplane! (An airplane flew by outside.)
*More sugar, more sugar!
*'Age open (garage open)
And that was our, very talkative, morning!
