A LIST OF WORDS

so that when we look back and wonder, what were you saying at 13 months?




as of today, river says:

ball
bite
bah - for banana. every now and then, he mumbles something verrrry close to banana. 
bird/birdie
down/done
bubbles
duck
book
ice and hot - he always whispers these two words. 
bath - LOVES the bath. if he's grouchy, you can say bath to snap him out of it, but you better deliver on that promise! because he's already running to the bathroom and pulling his shirt up. 
eyes
nose
shoes
dada
dog
yeah
hi
no/no,no,no
again
this - used for anything he want. he points and says, this? and when i say no, like, for example, to the knife he wants, he arches his back and cries until i can distract him with something else. 
cheese
uh-oh
button - for anything that resembles a button and of course, for his belly button. the cutest!
butterfly
yay - always accompanied with a clap!
cock-a-doodle-dooo - which sounds more like "oodle, oddle, oooo"

doesn't say it but knows "high-five"
doesn't say it but knows "kiss" - he will often demand or comment on a kiss by saying "bah"

understand lots of commands!
drink your milk/juice/water.
come here.
sit down.
ready?
go get __.
where is ___?
throw the ball.
give it to the doggy/daddy/mommy.
dance.
sing.

i'm sure i am forgetting things but it's a decent summary.
go riv!

  2. Vicki, you forgot to write that he LOVES to dance and if we say, "River dance or let's dance"... he stomps his feet, moves his arms and his hips forward and backward with a big smile!!!
