I have decided that 1-year-old will henceforth be referred to as “Dear Little Fellow” on this blog. It’s one of the nicknames we’ve called him since he was little, and it’s better than calling him 1-year-old all the time (I’m still working on a better moniker for Hubby).
One of the things Hubby and I most love about Dear Little Fellow is watching him learn and grow. He is walking and talking now, and he’s not much of a baby anymore! He literally says new words every day, but here is a list of some that I can think of, somewhat in order of when he learned them:
By 14 months: Yum-yum, Papa, Mama, Yeah, Clock, Ham, Nana (banana), Didee (diaper), Cat, Meow, Roooo! (elephant noise), Grrr/roar (bear/lion noise), Brrr (bird), Hat, Hot, Hi, Help/Helper, Mat (that his highchair is on)
15/16 months: Home, Snack, Neigh (horse noise), Baa (sheep noise), No, his own name, Caw (bird noise), Blocks, Box, Hmm… (sometimes he will look in the refrigerator and say that; Hubby says he got it from me!), Din-din (dinner)
16/17 months: Dizzy (when he wants Hubby to spin him around), Out, Squirt (referring to his bath toys), Yap/Wow-wow (dog noises), Wow!, Ring, Bed, Bath, Hoo (owl noise), Book, Milk, Walk, Burp (bupp), Cack (quack, duck noise), Bawk (chicken noise), Peep (chick noise), Baby, Maybe, Good, Box (for mailbox, when he wants to get the mail), Read, Door, Key, Eat
Updated to add: Honk, Beep, Goin’ (going), Doin’ (doing), Red (the color…it is the only color he knows, but he says “red” pretty consistently for red things), In, Dry (as in, to dry off with a towel), Ride, Tree, Water, Library
