Don't you know, we're talkin' 'bout a revolution

Wow, the gaps in my posts are getting huger and huger. The funny thing is, it's not really the working mother juggling act that is keeping me from posting regularly, but more the potent combination of Amazing Race-American Idol-Glee-So You Think You Can Dance + Our new StarHub recordable set-top box.

Which means a) I'll never have to miss anything that coincides with Jordy's bedtime again; b) I can record ANYTHING on the channels we pay for, like say, random episodes of Whose Line Is It Anyway; and c) TV Is just so... distracting! Anyway, bad excuses I know...

So. A ton of things have been going on but probably the coolest has been Jordy's sudden decision to TALK! Yes, as in clear words, not just "geh" or "kah". It's been a l-o-o-o-n-g time coming but it's so fascinating to watch!

So here's a look at the words Jordy is saying at 19months:

1. Daddy
2. Mama
3. Uh-oh (usually after he deliberately sets his water bottle on its side, or overturns something)
4. Baby
5. Bubble
6. Ah-poo (for apple)
7. Air-pane (for airplane)
8. Car-car (for cars)
9. Kou-kou (we think he's referring to gong gong, his granddad, but we're not 100% sure yet)
10. Per-per/Per-ler (for the propellers on his airplane!)
11. Tar (for star)

And just today he said,
12. Two (for the number two!)

Speaking of numbers, he's really into them at the moment. He loves pressing the number "11" button in our elevator to go home, and singing "One, two buckle my shoe" will get him out of most grumpy moods/crying jags.

Ok, going to catch some zzzzz soon. David is on whis way to Abu Dhabi and I don't know whether Jordy's persistent cough will mean it's Sleepless in Singapore tonight so I better make hay while the sun shines (weird metaphor for sleep I know, but you get my drift!). If not it's zombie city at work tomorrow! Till next time!

Oh - clever Jordy - I'm really smiling that one of his first words is Airplane ....isn't it just amazing how words happen...Of course he has had an understanding of everything for a good while now. Hope wee Jordy is man about the house & looks after his Mumma while Dadda is away...

Definitely heard a few of Jordy's own vocab expressed in his own special ways...just yesterday!
Soon...he'll be able to argue and debate too!

maree said...

Yes Dick - He sure has a real thinking expression & I can just imagine that he'll have lots of opinions on all manner of subjects! haha I think we are all going to have lots of fun with this little man.

Thanks everyone for your comments! I forgot to list down his other favourite word: ba-boo for bedroom. And just today, poo- poo for nor sure what!

Poo-poo can only mean ONE thing for his older cousins Shenn,Young and Tyan...and that includes wee-wee. But for Jordy..who knows? Just observe and be amused and entertained.
Agree with you Maree..he sure has an unusual kind of expression on his face. I notice when you ask him something,he kind of pauses and contemplates in his mind whether or not 'you' are worth answering!
