So, as WF said the other day, "He's learning the language!". I followed Bean around today with a pen in hand, and by the end of the day we had over 50 words! This includes "Zoop!" when looking at a big stew pot (who taught him that?), "Bear" when looking at a plastic honey-bear, water and bath when, well, taking a bath. We have juice, cup, spoon, fork, yogurt, corn, meat, booh-beh (blueberries), PEES (please) and pumpkin. We have cat, hat, boot, shoe, sock ("zock") and shovel. Shovel is quite emphatic while we are outside, or when Dada has been spotted carrying a shovel outside when Bean has not been invited to help. He loves to help with outside chores. Inside chores, too...he recognizes the fly swatter (runs around yelling "fwies!" (flies) and the "boom" (broom) is quite a hit.

I'm not sure what's average at this age, but it's fun to have this record right before he turns 18 months old. There's definitely some gears turning up there these days, and it's so much fun to watch!

You'll be glad that you wrote this list down, I recently found a list I wrote down of my youngest sons words at the same age and it was fun to remember when he said bis-bit for biscuit - of course being 17 now he didn't want to be reminded!
I think Zoop is a lovely word,its cooler here today, definitely a zoop day!

I did the same thing when Emma was two. It's so fun to look back at the list- "nokkin" for "napkin" cracks me up!

Our son had said words previously but started "talking for real" at exactly 18 months, and it was so, so fun! Kudos to you for jotting it down. Keep that up if you can.

It's great that you're keeping a list. You're going to be amazed a year from now to look back at how far his language skills have advanced.

I just found your blog. It's great! (And yes, I'm totally wasting time when I should be working.)
