I birthed a genius!


At least I think I birthed a genius, you know-in a completely non-baised sense. Cade has developed a repertoire of words and I thought it best to share these with you poor sacks:

1. Dada
2. Mama (only used when injured, so I occasionally poke him with sticks).
3. Dat (seems to mean both Cat and That, as in What's that?).
4. Hot (everything in a cup is currently HOT).
5. Hi (HI DAT, HI DAT, HI DAT).

He also understands but does not say:

1. No (I was convinced this would be his first word).
2. Bye bye! (Accompanied with a wave).
3. Clap (yep, he can clap on command, when he feels like it).
4. Where is ______? (He goes runnin' like mad).
5. Tata mommy ____. (He "tatas" most of the time).
6. Baba (give me MILK!).
7. Tubby (give me water).
8. Sit down (reference the tubby).

I beam with pride.

Yep...he's a genius - I've witnessed it first hand. Could I say that perhaps, my little genius has had an influence on him? ;)

Thanks for the compliments! And Amy, perhaps your little genius rubbed off on mine, just a tad ;)

well, those boys who have such articulate mothers do tend to have a step up on the rest of the crowd...

we're not too big on "real" words yet (my son says things like "NO!NO!NO!" and "GO!GO!GO!" LOUDLY, yet appropriately) but he does understand complex commands that i'm pretty impressed with. for example, i can tell him that he needs to get ready to take a bath. he removes his clothing and his diaper, he throws his diaper in the TRASH not the recycling, opens the bathroom door, sits on the potty (just sits), then waits for someone to fill the bathtub. or i can tell him we're going to run some errands and that we need to get shoes and socks on. he first goes and finds a MATCHING pair of socks, we sit down and put them on. then he goes to find a pair of MATCHING shoes and so on and so forth. its "totally awesome!!!" (sorry, lots of yo gabba gabba lately.)

hey, I'm IMPRESSED!!!
