Toddler Tales... The Talking Explorer!

Ethan has been doing nothing but talking, talking, talking here lately, and I love it! To me this is the best time, he is at the "explorer" and language explosion stage. Curious about everything... how does it work... what happens if I put this in here... does it come apart... what happens when you push this button? I can read every question on his face as he tries to flush and/or put something in the toilet, gets a hold of the remote, unsuccessfully but oh-so-diligently tries to operate the VCR/DVD player:)

He is talking the talk!
Common words & phrases:
>bus, kitty, cup, juice, Blues Clues, Elmo, slide, swing, ball, apple, strawberry, banana, car,
snack, milk, truck, train, choo-choo, bridge, help, eat, hungry, dog...
Will repeat just about anything, when asked.
>Let's Go! (Orion's favorite), I see you or See you later,
>Go outside, in a lil' pitiful tone, as to make you feel sorry for him, & immediately take him out to play.
>Awww-somme, the way he draws it out, wish I could bottle his little voice up!
>Ready, Set, GO! when we are heading down the slide!
>Extreme, which sounds exactly like green bean... too cute!
>O-rye-n (his version of Orion), which he now yells when we head out to play if Orion is already out.
>Points and says, "The Moon!" Like it is the first time he has seen it... every time!
>Love You, every night now when we put him to bed:)
And our all time favorite...
>I'm Okaaaayyyyy!!! Says this just about every time he
falls down, bumps his head, slips unexpectedly,
trips, just to let us know... He's Okaaayyyy!

He is a loving, rambunctious, adventurous, smart, curious, quick, talkative, full blown toddler! Who loves coloring, rummaging, and standing at the bottom of the stairs with a repetitive Mommie, Mommie, Mommie until he is answered. He can be patient and persistent.

It's great that you are keeping track of your little guy's words and habits. It is amazing how much you forget over the years!
