My husband, who has a very high tolerance for silly, says that I am pushing the silly envelope with my last two posts. And now for something less silly and more sentimental.

In honour of 'Sprout', my son, turning 15 months old today, we have counted up all the words we have heard him say so far.

Happy Birthday, Sprout. It's been a wild ride.

The sprout sounds relatively brilliant. And his other activities (pinching) remind me of the ankle-biting phase (hey, I was busy at the drawing table!) and the screaming phase. At 21, my daughter shows no lasting effects from passing through them.

Smart was good in my family also. Now I wish I'd done more with "finish" or "accomplish". My second daughter craves a wide variety of things to do, but after a taste, prefers moving on to something else rather than developing expertise. Then again, it may be her personality as opposed to the way I raised her.

Now you have to teach Sprout to say "squirrel"...

What a great list! At 15 months no less. No doubt as brilliant as ma and pa. Our 22 month-old squinch has a similar vocabulary but only we can decipher it. To the rest of the world it sounds very much like puh, suh, muh, duh, and shuh. We keep hoping for the best, however. :)
