It's a game we used to play in the olden days when I was at primary school :wink: :D You had to spell words to score rounders. Most words only got you one base, but you could go for a whole rounder if you were feeling brave! If you spelt something wrong you were out.

More of a phrase: "Mommy skidoo it" = Mommy, you do it.

I think it's supposed to be "Mommys can do it" -- she's having a weird phase where everything is plural.

Mouse is going all multisyllabic suddenly. "Struggling", "beautiful" & "certainly" are getting a lot of use. His cup of water at tea time was "excellent". Goes hilariously with the baby pronunciation - we still get lots of classics like "likkle".

Oh me, oh my.. the "I neeeeeeeed.." thing is in full swing here too! And if it's not "I neeeeeeeed.." it's "I'd liiiiiiiike.."!

Today Dylan's Uncle taught him to say, "Geezer!". Marvellous.

"O" is frog, according to Eddie. We know it means frog because he says it whilst peering at the little heap of undergrowth where we found a frog the other day, and then standing up and trying to jump (in the massively gorgeous way that 15 month olds can't jump) like a frog....

I had forgotten how perfectly delicious the emergence of language is!

This morning L was helping me put away the washing. She passed me my cardigan to hang up and I said "Oh i'm going to wear that today actually. What shall I wear with it?" meaning which t-shirt/top, and L said

"How about your booby-hanger?" picking up my bra and passing it to me.

Here we get "Waan to shay-shay" meaning Squirmy wants to hold a hook and some yarn and look a bit confused about how to make it do what Mummy does.

This was actually current back during harvest-time in August, but I was reminded of it reading a book:

"Naw-he Daa-ie" complete with stern face and a wagging finger. His crime? Having measured Squirmy's feet at least five times each he put the foot guage down on the table. Squirmy was of the opinion that you need to measure at least once more to be sure.

"By the way.."

Lots of sentences end with "by the way" at the moment:

"I'm putting my shoes on.. by the way!"
"I'm in the kitchen.. by the way!"
"I'm cuddling Isaac.. by the way!"
"I'd like a satsuma.. by the way!"

And so on, and so forth. Also this morning I think I heard him ask me, "Why Mummy?"

Dun-Dun-DUUUUN!
