Ben's vocabulary has been exploding lately. Here's a list of words he knows:
Boo (which means "moo")
Baa (as in what a sheep says)
Owl (This is his most bizarre word... We have a framed Rush album which prominently features an owl and one day Ben pointed to it and said "Owl." There are owls in some of his books, but we never emphasized them, so the fact that he picked it up is rather astounding.)
Bath (which sounds more like "baa")
Now, if you were to come to our house you wouldn't necessarily recognize all these words. "Cheese," "no," "bye-bye" and "go" are very clear and though "owl" is a little mangled it's still obvious. The rest you might not get unless we told you. I know everyone always says you'll regret when your kid starts talking, but it'll be so nice when he can TELL ME what he wants. At least then I'll know what the tantrum's about.
