You're my boy, Blue!

Husband here...

It's fun to see the kids' language skills developing. Penny has a very cute way of saying "uh-ohhhhh" when anything unexpected happens. She also says "shoe" very well and clearly knows what it means.

But Ned has my current favorite word. Partially because it's more abstract, and partially because of the way he uses it. He'll point to various things and say "blue." (Well, it's "booo," really.) Most of the time it's something that's actually blue, and those times his tone is pretty happy. But other times he'll point to something that's certainly not blue, like the red "eraser" trackpoint thingy nub on my notebook from work. He still says "boooo," but with an almost panicked tone. You can tell he knows it's not really blue, he just doesn't know the right word and wants you to tell him.

That's my interpretation, anyway.

So cute! Cameron's vocabulary is expanding but she uses it very inconsistently. Occassionally we get a "Charlie" a "Bottle" a "Izzy" (dog next door) or "shoe".

I love it! He is so cute - I can just picture the panic "okay so it's not blue but WHAT COLOUR IS THIS???"

LOL

Funny -- K's first color was blue too! For a week or two, almost everything was "blue". I'm sure red and yellow are not far behind....
