Something major happened to Ian while Paul and I were in the hospital. It seems like over night he learned to speak. Suddenly, he's saying words we had no clue he knew. Sure, he could say ca... we knew he meant car. But now, it's absolutely CAR, emphasis on the R please. We show him an altogether too familiar little furry red monster and he's spouting Elmo. When he's ready for his Teletubbies, he's yelling out T.V.! That thing that's floating in the water, you got it, BOAT. Then there's his favorite word: NO!!!! I swear I hear him saying phrases too. On more than one occasion he has told us, "I did it," or "there you go."
Of course he's still experimenting with the sounds, and he's not always saying the words correctly, but Paul and I have definitely learned Ianese. See if you can figure out what the little guy is saying:
ice (not the frozen water either)
I'll post the answers later. Here's a hint, he seems to leave off the beginning or ending consonant sound, except for the last two. Good luck.
Wylie health update: Paul & Ian seem to be over the worst of their colds. Ian still has a runny nose and coughs once in a while, but nothing like before. Laurel is still majorly congested, poor thing.
