Gwibble Gwee-bee!

May I just say how much I adore my little man's nonsensical mumblings and musings? Every day now it seems he tries to speak more and more. Mostly it's just baby garblings, like his favorite, "Gwibble gwee-bee?" But every once in awhile he'll come out with something new and spurt it out with such clarity. After a raised eyebrow, asking the Dad Man if it wasn't only my eager imagination, I get all excited and have been known to literally leap up and go into a clapping frenzy. Only problem is he'll say one word or phrase perfectly once and then - poof! That's it! Oh, how he loves to tease his mama!

I've heard him say "green," "hi," "bye," "here you go," "there," "catch," "dog," "ball," "where'd it go?" and a few other things when he's in the mood for some applause.

The all-knowing mamas out there all insist that I need to enjoy these question-free days while they last. I just can't wait to hear what's going on in that over-active ever-expanding brain, though! This is especially true when he studies something carefully and then peers up at me with up-turned palms and wide eyes with a "Goo mumph-a-wee?" and then shakes his head in disgust when my best answer just doesn't cut it.


  1. "enjoy question-free days" is an understatement! one huge,gigantic understatement!

  2. Liz - I do understand, as I have spent a good deal of time with other people's 3-year olds and their neverending supply of "why?"s. I am so excited to hear what his "isms" will be, though :)

  3. I have four children ranging in ages 15 to 1 so I experience a huge spectrum of personalities and inquisitiveness on a daily basis. I'm dying to find out what my 1 year old will be interested in, what kinds of questions she'll ask me. But for the life of me, I just want the older ones to be quiet already. lol Just kidding.
    Thanks so much for stopping by my place. Have a wonderful summer with your little one. Thanks again.

    Kristi, Live and Love...Out Loud

    I am SO with you on baby gibberish- my 22 month old still has whole conversations in gibberish that crack me up!
