Elias has been picking up new sounds every day lately. His babble has really taken a step up. But just in the last two or three days he has had a small explosion of word usage as well. He says “Mama” and “Dada” often which has been super fun for Nathan and I. It seemed like everyone we knew had their kids say those words first…I guess we aren’t as interesting as burps, balls, and kitties.
Elias has now strung a few words together at the same time:
Today during lunch Elias burped. Then he looked at me and said, “I did it burped.” It figures that one of his first words was “burped,” and now his first sentence is also about burping.
Elias also now says “cheese” and “this.” He uses “this” to indicate when he wants something.
He is so cute.
