We've been staying home a lot more lately, with colds, snow and death fever, so I've been working on Rylan's talking skills lots more. Its really helped. As he was able to verbalize his needs, I watched his terrible two-ness subside little by little.
So, toddler talk is totally cute and I'm going to miss it when Rylan pops out "mother, may I be excused to wash my dishes, dry them and put them away?" Okay, so he'll never say that, but I'll totally miss all the toddler-isms that come out of his mouth.
Here are some favorites
Me: "Rylan, do you want a drink?"
Ry: "Please help, D!"
Me: "Wanna go outside?"
Ry: "Please help, side!"
Me: "need a snack?"
Ry: "Please help, nack!"
Also, he calls Max "Ma", and says "mom" in an English dialect, so I'm "MUM". He loves to eat "peash" (pizza), loves him some "yoya" (lola the dog) and as soon as you snap him into his carseat, he informs you he's "duck" (or stuck). Love it, love it, love it.
Here's Rylan at the park pushing Max in the stroller. So sweet.
