I want to remember this night years later when we're telling you all about the first time you called your precious puppies by name. You'll think we're just your crazy parents, I'm sure, bragging and lighting up as we reminisce about your cute little voice and how you could get SO close to saying Cohen, but not quite there with Mason. You've been saying 'doggie' for weeks now. It was actually one of your first real words and we know that's because you share a special bond with those two pups of ours. Well, of yours. You stole their hearts the day that they met you.

You've been saying all sorts of words lately and you've been saying a lot of things that Mama and Daddy can't quite make out either. I expect to turn around one of these days and you'll just be talking off our ears. I am so excited to watch you grow and learn.

So what all are you saying now, 2 months after your 2nd birthday when we could barely get you to say a word?


Those are your favorites and you draw out the vowels so it's more like dooooogie, coooookie, daaaaaddy. It's so cute.

Yellow - Mammal was trying to teach you colors and that was the only one that stuck with you.

Bye and Bye Bye

Co-wee (Cohen)
Mi-mi (Mason)

Mum (I should quit trying to get you to call me Mama and just let you call me Mum, I suppose.)


You said Layla a few times and a handful of other words we've only gotten you to say once or twice.

This list is your favorites though, the ones you will say fairly often. The one word you haven't started using that I am SO glad about? NO. Let's hope that one stays far away for awhile.

I love you so much, little bit, and I am so proud of you.

Stay my baby forever?



  1. Awww just precious, Jenn! :)

  2. So sweet.
    Those little pups seem to take up a big place in Henry's heart. Love it.

  3. Jenn,
    so cute! It seems our boys are at similar developmental places! Drake is just now grabbing onto about a dozen new words (like in the past two to three weeks)after having about four words for months. It's so fun to watch! You are motivating me to record it on my blog. Duh. That's a pretty big developmental deal. Get on the ball, Momma. ;)


You don't know just how lovely you are...thank you.
