Brayden has been a wet sponge for new words lately. His absolutely favorite word that he has learned is, without a doubt, “Done!” He knows exactly when to use it, too. If he’s finished eating, “Done!” If he doesn’t want to play with a toy anymore, “Done!” And the worst, but funniest, time is when he doesn’t want to take a nap. He’ll sit up in my lap and announce, “Done!” as though that should instantly make nap time go away so he can get back to playtime fun. It is almost impossible to not giggle when he does this, although that just makes him laugh and say it more, getting us further and further from drifting off to sleep.

His second favorite word is, “Bath!” He thinks that all water = bath. If he sees water dripping from a sink faucet, “Bath!” Or my husband is watering the lawn, “Bath!” Or on a recent trip to the zoo, all ponds, puddles or pools of water in the animals cages = “Bath!”

He also knows exactly when he gets a real bath. As soon as he finishes his dinner and is out of the highchair, he’ll run to the bathroom yelling “Bath! Bath! Bath!” He’ll start grabbing his bath toys and throwing them into the tub, one by one.

It is so fun to see him learn and practice his new words, but I know I will miss the meaningless babble when it disappears. I’m also being extra careful about what I say around him because he will repeat EVERYTHING! Sh*t! 😉
