Fly is just starting to put two or three words together (unlike some people's toddlers of the same age who have been speaking in complete sentences since birth). "Come on!" "This way." "I see you." "Love you." {heart melts}

Even though I understand Fly better than anyone else, sometimes he says things I don't understand. He keeps saying something like "snail mail," which doesn't make any sense because I don't use that term.

He also started saying "crunchies." Crunchies at Target. Crunchies on our nightly walk. Crunchies driving through our town after dark. And I know he's not asking for a snack.

Then last night while driving past a shopping center decorated for the holidays, it hit me.

Fly is saying Christmas trees.

After I was done laughing, I joined him in saying Christmas trees.

Do you think his pronunciation will be better by Christmas?

I love ti when Harry mutters something incomprehensible and then looks at me expectantly like I should be understanding him. I guess I am still learning to speak Harry more fluently.

You'll miss those mispronounciations before you know it. So cute.

I still miss my oldest calling grapes "bapes." I always thought that was so cute.

that is so cute! I wish I could understand half of what xavier was saying.

p.s. I just got all caught up on your blog and you'll have to forgive me for not commenting more. My life has been similar to what you have described. I barely get my own posts up, much less read the ones I love! Hang it there! The 2's don't last forever!

Oh, that's so cute!

Julia used to call The Grinch, The Crunch. It was all I could do to keep from laughing.

Awww..crunchies! That is way too cute. And I could use a little less of Isabella's lip lately, actually. A talkative toddler is not always a good thing!
