More words!

Pretty much the minute that I wrote the last entry, Hendrik started saying new words.  These include:

Baby (beebee)
Thank you (teetuew)
Cheese (tsheee)
Bike (bye!)
Ball
Mum

It's amazing how quickly this goes!  He's also started repeating a LOT of words that I say, if I start with one or two that he already knows.

Almost 16 Months

At almost 16 months, Hendrik is growing up quickly!
 His vocab includes:
Puppy!
Daddy (most often pronounced "DAH-ddie"
Up
Banana (nanana)
Hi.
Yeah
Um (only ever used when starting a "sentence" when no one is paying attention, or when pretending to talk on the phone.)
Beep beep beep!

His signing vocab includes:
Please
Thank you
All done
Bye-bye

Every morning after breakfast, hendrik asks for me to pick him up, then he waves to daddy and says, "yeah. Yeah. Yeah." meaning, of course, that he's ready to go to the babysitter's house. I love it that going to Erine's place is such a positive thing for him. His favourite thing in the world is to chase izzy with his ride on car (he pushes it like a shopping cart)and laugh hysterically as she scrambles out of the way. He's a funny little man and we love him always and like him most of the time. ;)
