At two years and 8 months, Jayden has grown a bit more in his vocabulary. He still isn't as vocal as his brother and sister were at that age, and that can be frustrating at times because he screams a lot and throws some tantrums, but when he does talk, it's very sweet.

A Jayden dictionary with some of his words and phrases:
ah-puh-toos(octopus)- Whenever he sees the letter "o", he says,"O. ah. ahpuhtoos."

nigh-nigh- His blanket that he currently drags with him all over the house

baby- What he calls his favorite stuffed animal(giraffe), and also when he sees any picture of a baby

watuh(water) His favorite drink(unless he sees me drinking a soda at a fast food place). Usually followed by "peas"(please). He does use his manners.

"No seegig. I doen lie it!" A phrase he picked up when I was singing to him, and he all of a sudden started to scream. I told him that he needed to use his words and he learned,"No singing. I don't like it." He actually loves to sing songs together. Just wasn't in the mood that particular night, I guess. Every once in a while, he will say the phrase just because he knows that it makes us laugh.

"Ah done!" All done.

"Yay! Dih it!" Yay! I did it!

Some songs he likes to sing:
"Jesus Loves Me"
"Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star"- sounds more like Kee-Ko, Kee-Ko Little Stah"
"Jump Up"(sung by the Imagination Movers on the Disney Channel- complete with motions)

He actually likes singing a lot, and will sing with pretty much whatever he listens to- even if he doesn't know the words.

He also knows his colors, numbers, letters(complete with sounds), and body parts. My favorite parts that he says are "no-ese(nose), to-es(toes), and beh-yee buht(belly button)."

Well, I could go on, but I can't think of everything, and you are probably already bored by now. ;) He's really a smart little guy, and I love him a lot!

What a cutie! I miss the cute stage. My 6 year old still thinks everything she does is adorable. Nope.

My favorite is his telling you not to sing.

Maybe it was your voice he was objecting too. Just kidding, really.

Awe! I have a little one that is similar in age. Don't you just love all of the cute ways they say regular words. We just entered the "no mama" stage. Fun. :)

What is the deal with kids telling their moms not to sing? It seems to happen a lot.

My boys don't mind my singing, and Nolan especially likes to sing to himself. "Pizza Hut, Pizza Hut, McDon - alds, McDon -alds. Kentucky Fried Chicken, Kentucky Fried Chicken, McDon - alds. Ta - Co - Bell!"
