The things you say

Hi Noah

You are 2 years old and 4 months now and your language is astounding.  You will try and say everything and anything and for the most part you have great success.  You are definitely speaking better than other kids your age and we love nurturing and encouraging your growing vocabulary.  The most fun thing that comes with this new stage though are some of the absolutely absurd and adorable things that you say.  I don't want to forget any of them so I thought I would record them here for you and I to enjoy in the future.

Noah -  Daddy what's that?
Daddy - A lamp
Noah - Oh it's so pretty

Noah - Mummy what's this?
Mummy - an egg cup to make egg and soldiers.  Why don't you go play with it in your kitchen and         make some for Mummy.
Noah - OK (returns after a minute or so) Mummy where are the soldiers?
Mummy - oh soldiers are made out of cutting toast into strips you just have to go and pretend.
Noah - where is the pretend?

After a longish sleep in the car on our weekend camping trip you woke up and said 'Mummy my bum is so squooshy'

Last week you were eating boiled eggs and watching TV - on the program there were birds hatching from eggs - You said 'Mum I'm eating birdies'

When you return home and see Cleo you now say 'Hello darlin'

Reading a book together this week you saw a picture of a goose but called it a duck so I corrected you - we went back and forth a couple of times then you said 'sorry mummy I think it's a duck'  How can I argue with that??

You are such a bright gorgeous wonderful boy and I love you so much.

Love Mummy xxxxx


  1. Hi Kirsty,

    Even if you don't hear from me in 100 years, I read your blog daily to catch up with what's going on with you and Noah. Where on earth do you find the time to fit everything that you do into your days, and stil manage to make all this beautiful craft?!?!? I am AMAZED!!!! You are a legend and I admire you! Just finishing another two weeks prac and then David and I are off to Bali. I would absolutely love to catch up over the hols. Love, Sandra xx

  2. LOL where is the pretend??? Oh I love it, how adorable. We had a very early, very eloquent talker as well and it made for the most gorgeous early communication. Record it, write down as much of it as you can!! Only 2 years on and we are surprised at how much we had forgotten, that we swore we couldn't possibly ever forget, til we saw it or read it again (thank goodness we captured it).

    Followed you from Lori's FYBF linky ;)

  3. Oh, I love the things kids say, and good for you on writing them down before they're forgotten!


Hi thanks for sharing your thoughts with me. It is nice to know someone is listening.
