“Mama, my tummy hongrin! (rubs his tummy) ‘Tan I, Eli, have some cer-ral-ral? ‘Da stwrburry ‘tind.”

“I don’t think we have Cheerios, but we can look.”

“Uh-Huh. I founds it. See? TaaDaa!”

“You certainly did. Hand me box. We’ll get it out of the floor. Oh, Eli! I forgot that we don’t have any milk for cereal.”

“No cow’s milk!?”

“I’m afraid not. And you ate all of the strawberries already too.”

“Hmmmm, let me t’inks. (taps his chin with his finger) Hows bouts apple-paws and grapes?”

“Sure. That’s fine.”

“Winston the kitties cack like apple-paws and grapes?”

“He does not. But he already has breakfast.”


“O’tay. Winston, sit ‘dere. I share you.”


“Winston ‘tome heres.” (whispers)


“Oh shworry! I eats my apple-paws. It gi-gish-ious! Nom. Nom.”

      Thank you! I was telling my husband that we need more video of him. His pronunciation and train of thought are just priceless! I don’t want to forget them. 🙂

        So true! And I feel horribly guilty that I have a camera full of videos of our first son, and with #2- it’s all on my iPhone!

        I’m starting to gravitate more towards filming/shooting with my phone. It’s so convnenient! It’s even easier to upload. I still take my traditional camera with me every where though….just in case he does something longer than a few seconds. 🙂

      Isn’t it fun?! I am loving how much he talking. I find myself having a conversation with him and am so surprised at what he knows. Yesterday, he pointed out a “super cool skatesboard.” I couldn’t believe he even knew what it was! 🙂
