Toddler Talk

Liam is growing up fast, there is no doubt about that, but it is his language skills that amaze me on a daily basis.

So many of his little baby words are gone and replaced with words pronounced properly and even sentences.  He knows colours, shapes and body parts.  He loves to talk and I love to have conversations with him.

Here are a few of my favourite recent "Liam says" moments.

Mommy: "Liam, come have breakfast."
Liam: "No, need to play cars for a minute."

Daddy: (after hearing me telling Liam repeatedly to stop) "What did you do?"
Liam: (very proudly about the cat) "I pull her tail and she went away."

Liam: "Mommy, Miam a dolphin."
Mommy: "Liam's a dolphin?"
Liam: "Yes, Miam a dolphin in shuttle.  Shuttle and rockets going to moon."

Liam: "Where Daddy?"
Mommy: "Daddy's at work."
Liam: "Daddy at work in Daddy truck?"
Mommy: "Yes."
Liam: "OK, Bye bye Daddy."

He knows the names of many of his hot wheels car.  He knows corbets (corvettes), mutang (mustangs), GTTT (GT), chacher (challenger), bumbee (Bumblebee, from Transformers), and I know there a few more that I can't remember as I am really NOT a car person!

He calls his Grandma "Gabba" and his Auntie Margaret "Martie Auntie".

A few of his favourite phrases right now are"

"You stink" (When he is poopey and doesn't want to get his diaper changed.)
"Stupid Show." (Not my favourite, but it is pretty funny!)
"Read This!" (He loves books!)
"Right there!"
"All Done!"
"Stop that."

I could go on all day with the cute and funny things he says, but I will leave you with my favourite:
Liam: "Lu Lue Mommy."
Mommy: "Love you too Liam."
