My little fella has moved up to the next class in school (the 2-yr-olds room! WHEN DID HE GET SO BIG??), and with that move has come an explosion of verbal awesome. He was ahead of his peers in the 1-yr-olds room, but really, a bunch of kids learning "more" and "milk" and "no" can't really broaden your linguistic horizons too much.

But now? Now he's in the 2-yr-olds room and he's talking up a STORM.

Exhibit A:
(in the car)
Sam: Mommy, let's listen to Peter Pan!
Me: Okay, buddy, let me find it. (listening to the first part of each CD to find the right one)
Sam: That's not it! That's Ariel!
Me: (finds Peter Pan)
Sam: There it is! Great job, Mommy!


So, since I know that his cute little not-quite-right-isms won't last long in the face of such verbal advances, here are some of my favorite little Sam-isms.

cupcake: cakecup
pear: parrot
elephant: ephalant
toucan: coutan
orange (color): oranges
yellow: lellow
noodle: boogie (???)
Yogurt: woah-gurt
Oatmeal: oh-peel
when he has to put down the book he's reading in the car: Pause the book! Pause Little Gorilla!
when he wants me to read to him: talky you, Mommy

I can't believe I'm already to the point where my teeny tiny sweet little baby is making me laugh with his Sam-isms.

Sam is 1 yr, 11 months, and 2 weeks old.
