Ride choo choo go
Mama do choo choo
Dadiiiiieee (da-die, his new word for daddy) work go?
Yes, there is a theme. His days consist of begging for trains (to play with, to watch on the tv, to go visit and stand under to watch them whooooooosh over our heads), sending Daddy off to work, waiting for Daddy to come home, and wishing Mommy had those awesome bubbles from music class to play with.
Noah's language skills are just exploding. He's mimicking every word I say (good AND bad) and starting to get a hang of that pesky "s". "Yes" has evolved from an enthusiastic head nod accompanied by grunting to an enthusiastic head nod accompanied by a high pitched "YESSHHHHH!". He likes to "go!", "do!", and the classic "Mama do!" (Mama does a lot around here, kid, don't you forget it.) He has conversations with himself and his toys and is beginning to partake in a little imaginative play.
I know this is a) boring to those of you without children and b) old hat to those of you with children but these small milestones just excite me to no end. It reassures me that I AM teaching my child...that he is growing and learning and maturing. We're definitely turning that corner from baby-dom to little kid-ville.
Waiting for the L last weekend...his first train ride!
Seriously, this was the highlight of his LIFE thus far. Choo-choo!
