How my son’s vocabulary evolved over the holidays…

Posted by C2 on Jan 14, 2013 in General

In the past few weeks, our family enjoyed many of the traditional elements of the holidays – lights, food, shopping, sledding, singing songs, and opening presents. In our house, where we celebrated Christmas morning for the first time in over a decade, we found ourselves celebrating other things…….like the fact that it took 3 hours to open presents because Max had to play with everything and the shocking number of new catch phrases he picked up.

So, here is the list of words and phrases that Max started saying during the holiday break. I know I haven’t captured all of them, but you get the idea.

  • Amen, brotha!
  • How are you doing?
  • No, YOU’RE cute
  • No
  • I’ve got a boo-boo (pronounced bew-bew like a southern belle)
  • I see you!
  • I’m Superman! I’m Batman! I’m Spid-a-man! (Note: Max has never seen anything but images of these figures.)
  • Jingle bells, jingle bells, rocks
  • Merry Christmas
  • Stinky poo-poo (or “What’s that? Toots! Stinky poo-poo!)
  • I found doo-doo
  • Fresh a-Beat Band
  • Let’s go to base-a-ment
  • Play in bounce house, c’mon!
  • I got, I got, I got, I got legs! (Bad rendition of Loco Legs by the Fresh Beat Band)
  • Ewwww
  • Bless you, Dadda
  • Happy birt-day, baaaaby Jeeeesus. Haaaappy birtday to you!
  • I have hiccups
  • I want cookies
  • You OK, mama?
  • All gone, Dadda, p*nis all gone [Dad’s response: No Max, it’s still there. Your ¬†pee-pee is gone.]
  • Kiss it (as in a “bew-bew”)
  • Shake that bottom line
  • I had a dream, something something something, I had a dream

 

My favorite exchange:

[Max:] Mama, I something something blah, blah, snack.

[Me:] You want a snack?

[Max:] OKAY!

 

Of the above, I can only take credit for “You OK, mama?” which followed a Pete Rose dive to rescue my son from ending a speedy sled-ride in the pond behind our house. Long story and I’m still hopeful my neighbors don’t have video of it.

I blame the rest of them on Max’s overwhelming new feeling of Christmas Spirit, his older cousins, friends with older kids, his grandparents (yes, YOU, grandpas and grandmas and peepaws and peepons), and last but not least, Daddy.

Thank you to all of you from the bottom of my heart. I haven’t stopped laughing. Seriously.
