Little Man · sick · sleep

Wordy McGee

Monday Little Man will be 18 months old (young?). Tuesday will be his doc appointment, and I have fears they’re going to ask me things that I haven’t really kept track of. Like how many words he knows and uses in context.

Let’s see….

Momma
Dada
Lu Lu (Lucy)
Lo Lo (Laura)
Matt
K-K (Kennedy or Kristen)
Yep
Yes
Nope
No
Hands
Toes
Feet
Shoes
Socks
Please
More
Thank you
Alright
Sure
Up
Book
Read
Cheese
Yo Yo (yogurt)
Sauce (applesauce)
Water
Milk
Cracker
Bunny (cheddar bunnies for snack!)
Berries
Melon
Eat
Bread
Hot Dog
Nose
Diaper
Dog
Kitty
Bob
Mine
You
Me
Abigail
Melanie
Becca
Miss
Bite
Bubbles
Ice Cube
Paci
Off
On
Word World
Uh-Oh (Elmo)
Uh-oh (oops)
Sheep
Duck
Love
One
Two
Five
Mote (remote control)
Fish
Shoot
Gosh (oops – my fault)
Hands (as in “I want to wash mine”)

Wow. That’s more than 60. I guess that’s good?

He also knows which sounds animals make:
Dog: woof woof
Duck: cack cack
Lion: rawr
Bear: rawr
Cow: Moo (except the cow at Chick Fil A, which rawrs?)
Deer: shoot!
Kitty: ow ow

And he can identify his nose, mouth, hands, feet, belly and penis (yes, I’m so proud. But we use real words around here, so I have no one to blame but myself!).

He’s also starting to show interest in the toilet. By that I mean he wants to play in it 🙂

But maybe that’s a start?

He is certainly wordy. He talks all. the. time.

Today he has fifth disease (we believe) and/or a growth spurt. He had a high fever yesterday, and he won’t sleep for more than 20 minutes at a time (the doc says she thinks it’s because he can’t get comfortable). If he has a rash, it’s too faint to see on his skin. But we’re going to try benadryl tonight (based on doc’s recommendation).

Here’s hoping for sleep tonight!!
