First Sentence

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.

    I am sure that your brothers are very proud of Elias’ first sentence. What more could Uncle Scott and Uncle Greg hope for?

    Elias comes by his fascination with bodily functions naturally because of his Germanic heritage–he is 1/8 Swiss. His Great Grandma Smith is Swiss and the family spoke German when she was growing up (Her oldest sister, who was in the 2nd generation born in the U.S., entered school in 1918 and did not speak English!). Great Grandma Smith claims that all anyone needs to speak German is to be able to clear their throat and spit! I digress–wait until Elias discovers the toilet . . .
