He's saying a lot more words now, and definitely understanding a whole lot more. Although his default answer to every question at the moment is No. Some things he says that I absolutely adore are:
Batatus (ba-ta-tooss) = octopus
Ice keem = ice cream
Chokleet = chocolate
Nookaaah = Luca
Oh no, bacon = oh no, broken (as in, "oh no, the toy is bacon")
Dysor (dye-sore) = dinosaur
Noghurt = yoghurt
Nucky = yucky
Oh-steeess? = what's this?
Why you? = where are you? As in "mama, why you?"
I also love the way he counts to 10 (by skipping a few numbers!), which goes something like this:
Fee, Fo, Fye, See, Seden (7), Nine, Eigh!
He's absolutely obsessed with firetrucks, and still loves fountains and water in general. He's affectionate, he's clever and oh so cheeky. Having a child is life changing. Our lives are completely different to how it was pre-baby, it's not always fun and games and at time it's challenging. But you know what, I wouldn't change it for the world. This little creature that I call my son is my everything.
Happy birthday my little Luca!
