Eli is quite talkative. His clearest words are Mamma (a mission to get him to say it though, he only uses it if he is REALLY upset), Daddy, Dadda, Pappa, Pappu, Dog, Doggy, This, That, There, Uh Oh, Tee, See, Grampa, Bye-Bye, Diaper, Ducky, and then the beginning of words, so Ba (Bath, this one is quite funny to listen too, he really has the ba of bath down to a science, all that is missing is the th!), Boo (Book, Boots), Bru (Brush) Bu (Bus), Bir (Birdy), Blo (Block), Poo (Poop). He is really good at connecting words to things, so if I ask him to bring me his horsey, cup etc he looks for them throughout the room, finds them and brings them here. I love that he is walking too, I say "Lets go change your diaper" He says: 'Diaper Diaper' and runs off to the washroom where I usually change him. He is so curious about everything - it is wonderful. He has these big alert eyes that just drink everything in ... :)
I love my DH and am so thankful he is here. Eli adores him, when he comes home from work he honks his horn of his scooter (we live in an apartment building), Eli yells "Daddy!" and runs off to the door, and if I take to long to come, he comes back and tucks at my pants and with a very serious face says Daddy again. So we go and he squeals the entire way! So freaking cute. Eli wakes up better when my DH is home, but he has been working from 7am, which means he leaves at 6:30am. So I have been on dealing with his wake ups and he is definitely not a morning person (my DH isn't either - getting up at 6am is torture for him!)
Jaimee, I so get the not leaving your sight thing, if I got to the washroom and shut the door, Eli starts crying so bitterly. It has improved now that he can walk, since he follows me around but I can't go anywhere without him or he cries.
I don't know what it is, but I have been so tired lately (*I am not pregnant we aren't trying yet). Could just be the colder weather, or something. I know I was feeling a little under the weather so maybe my body is just working harder to fight it off... oh well...
