A thought here and there

I was putting Victor to bed tonight (normally a Daddy and V event) but gave Daddy a night off -- so after reading some stories, talking about the day (train, big truck, Emma, tooot tooot, train) and some snuggles -- there was some wait while he settles into sleep time. Curled next to me, he was cozy but figety until sleep took over. I got to just lay in the dark, awake but relaxed and think. You forget how nice that is to do every now and again.
I love how during that time thoughts can string together -- from one thing to an other -- Britney....Iran....homework.....need to find something to wear.....did I mail that off....what will I read next.... So wonderfully random.

We've been waiting for Victor to talk - and we had hints here and there that he does have something to say -- so I wanted to stop and document the words he has now (some more clear than others of course)

  • Train
  • Toot toot
  • Bus
  • Emma
  • Bye (which he also uses when he would like us to stop something - like giving him medicine that doesn't taste good -- he turns his head and says Bye -- bless his little heart)
  • Annie (Felecia & Kevin's dog who visited for a couple days)
  • Momma
  • Da-da
  • Big truck
  • See ya
  • See you guys
  • All right
  • Shoes -- saying like my grandma does -- more like cheews
  • Help
  • Moon
  • Pervez Musharraf (are you paying attention?) :)
  • Juice -- which sounds a lot like shoes
  • Motorcycle
  • Helicopter

This has been a huge area of growth for him who just 8 weeks ago figured out Momma. YEAH VICTOR!

Edited to add:

  • Bye Girl or Bye Girls
  • Baba (for his paci)


maybe instead of 'juice' he's actually wanting to talk about the latest Jimmy Choo's...gotta love a boy who loves good shoes!!!
Don't forget, "Hi Girl."
