Greetings all! All's well here in Colorado, although Julian spiked a fever last night. As such, I've taken the morning off.

As long as I'm here, I thought I'd post some of Julian's burgeoning vocabulary - "baby words" if you will. He's been talking in sentences for quite some time now, but as time goes by, more and more of it is understandable as English! Here's a sampling of some of his current utterances. Today's category...

Food & Fun
puh-lay’ = "play"
wun’ a-woun’ ow-swoid’ = "run around outside" - his very favorite activity!
slot’-tet -or- slad'-ded = "salad"
kwak’-keurs = "crackers"
bo-wed’ = "bread"
a sweem’-in a pool’ = "swim at the pool" - something new for Julian, which he enjoys a lot.
weev’-veur = "river" - where we go on walks.
woks = "rocks" - what we throw in the river.
pa’-tah = "pasta" - usually uttered in a hushed whisper, as if in reverence.
sik’-ken = "chicken" - meant to be served with pasta.
bik = "bisque"
wal’-leur = "water" - to be served with ice.
fote’ it = "hold it" - as in "I want to hold it!"

Stay tuned - we'll post more soon.
