The Verbal Update

Grayson has been flying through the gross and fine motor skill milestones. Yes, he is running and trying to climb and can use a spoon pretty effectively. As evidenced by this picture...

But, lately his verbal/language skills have been improving and I find this most exciting.

His words are:
1. dada
2. mama
3. hat - FIRST WORD (other than the obligatory I know who my parents are :)
4. dog "dahhhhh"
5. ball "baaaah"
6. book "boooh"
7. up "ugh!"
8. pop/papa
9. duck "duuuuh"
10. Uh-oh "uh-uh"
11. Tonka "duh-da"
12. hot dog "ha-dah"

His animals sounds are:
1. baa - sheep
2. maa - billy goat

His signs are (notice most of these have to do with eating):
1. eat
2. more
3. please
4. cheese
5. cookie
6. cereal
7. dog
8. cracker - he made this one up
9. up
10. banana
11. blows kisses
12. bye-bye
13. milk
14. water
15. daddy
16. hat

Yeah, so the silence is over :)

The Trouble With Smurfs...

Everyone loves Smurfs. And why not, they are small, cute, and plagued by a large, grumpy human. What is not to love? Well, we have all been fooled. You see, Smurfs are a menace to society, they multiply faster than rabbits, have terrible hygiene and talk smack like a washed up hockey player. Well here at the O'Kane household, we have had enough. We are declaring war on all Smurfkind. Watch out Smurfs, we are coming for you, and we know that you taste like Cheese Quesadillas...
