Ka-BOOM

That's the sounds of Luke's language capabilities EXPLODING!  Wow, I heard that it would happen fast, when it happened....we feel like we have been waiting FOREVER for this, but it is finally coming together!

As cool as it is to watch, it's also a little tiring...my typical day with Luke...What's this?, What''s that?, Where's (fill in the blank...any person he knows, kids at daycare, favorite toy of the moment, whichever "guy" he is looking for-our "guys" are very important these days (you know like the dump truck driver, the firetruck driver, Lego people).  Oh and don't let me forget the dreaded "Why?"

Normal conversation from the moment of waking:

L: "Where's Bo?"
Me: "He's still sleeping."
L: "Oh, bed, shhhh!"
L: "Where's Daddy?"
Me: "In the shower"
L: "Oh, what's this?"
Me: "A flower called a geranium"
L: "Oh cool, geranium"

5 minutes later....

L: "Where's Daddy"
Me: "He's at work"
L: "Oh, why?"
Me: "uhh"...(that's kind of hard to explain)...."mommies and daddies work to earn money"
L: "oh, why?"

5 minutes later....

L: "Geranium" sniff, sniff (pretending to smell the flower)
L:  "Dora?  Where's Boots?  Map?...."
Me: "No TV right now"
L: "Ok mama. Where's guy?"
Me:  "How about some lunch"

After taking his first bite:

L: "Mmmm, Good!  More, please" (Although many times it is also "YUCK!, All Done, cookie?")

Rest of day...

Pointing at every object in the house asking what it is called and repeating it...and the kid's memory, it amazes me.  I don't know how he does it!

Last night Drew and I both agreed that even in the last 3 days his language has doubled.  Just last week I told Drew I was concerned that Luke wasn't putting more phrases together and was still just using single words...I am hopeful that the next few months bring a lot more communication!  It is so much fun!
