Soren as of 10/10/10

Because writing weekly in Soren’s baby book about his escapades and every move ended when he turned one, I’m not really sure what he is capable of or what this is going to look like. Hang on to your hats.

Soren can sign:
All done
More
Milk
Hot (baby sign, which is blowing)
Help
(Wave)
(Point)
A few he made up that we don’t understand

Soren can say:
mama
dada
dog (and bark)
cat
deer (and grunt)
(dinosaur/bear sound-roar)
bear?
that
this
all done
milk
help
hot (and, oh boy, does he know everything that is hot in the whole wide world, especially fire- real or in books.)
say
bye-bye
hi
hey
gimme that (this seems far fetched, I know, but he does it all the time when he wants something, so I’m going to count it)
ball
balloon
bike
tree
cup
eat
bum (we always call diaper changes “getting a nice, dry bum”)
drink?
there
book
Other words that I still only suspect he’s getting, as well as a bunch that he consistently uses to refer to things that either aren’t correct or intelligible.

Soren can walk, almost run, dance, bring us things, take us to what he wants, come here, clap, high-five, blow his nose when you hold up a tissue and say, ‘blow’ (!!), “read” books to himself, hold a phone sort of to his head and pretend to talk on it, drink from a cup (regular cup) without spilling, drink from a cup with lots of spilling, clean the floor, push the vacuum, move things between drawers, turn on and off the water, open and close doors (not if latched, but since our house is old and warped, most of our doors don’t close), open and close the microwave, use a spoon and fork (though not well), chatter incoherently most of the day, and snuggle lots of times. He pretends with objects and mimics just about everything we do that he can attempt. If he isn’t wearing a diaper, he’ll cry right before he wets, which we have decided means he’s going to potty train himself really early (HA!); either that or he’ll potty train really late, because he doesn’t like going pee without a snug-fitting underpant situation. He is always happy to see us and rarely in a bad mood.

    You guys should spend the entire car ride here next month trying to teach him how to say "thanksgiving".
