Tommy has started to say and repeat one or two syllable words/phrases. He's been saying mama and dada for awhile, of course, and he's said "night night" for about a month now. He just started saying "nanana" for banana and has some other Tommyisms. He's also started to repeat no, which I realize is life's little way of saying "WELCOME TO THE TODDLER YEARS."
Only he says "nah nah" instead of no, and it is SO CUTE that I sometimes don't mind it when he does something he shouldn't, just to hear him say it.
Except that my little Tommy is so much like his mama that Nah Nah comes with a full on attitude. So, when I say, "Tommy, no. Don't eat grass."
"Nah nah? What do you MEAN, I can't eat grass?"
And now, I've offended his delicate, sensitive soul, the little lip starts to quiver, his face scrunches up, and oh, THE POUT that would make any diva proud.
This kid. I'm in for it, aren't I?
