No Wonder

I realized recently that over the past few months, every time Aaron says, "You're welcome!"
I have been responding with, "And I like YOU!"

Is it any wonder this kid has been very unfast (slow seems like the wrong (read: bad, label-y) term) in his language development? I'm totally confusing him.

It's his fault though. When you pronounce "you're welcome" like, "Ah lack'em" your mom has a right to think you said, "I like 'em."

Oh Lisa, that was hilarious and the picture is perfect. I enjoyed seeing pics of your family from Nathan's camera last night. Wish I was there!

That is such an awesome shot!
And you have SUCH good timing.

Ah, but his language development slow because you respond incorrectly or do you respond incorrectly because his language development is slow???

Chicken, egg, whatever, he'll get there.

Very cute post. But the picture is even cuter!

So cute! I hope he still says 'Wow, Mom!" when we come visit. ;0)

Hee hee...we have little things like that around here too. I've such a keen appreciation for puns I just can't seem to help myself.

I like that he's "unfast". I don't like the term slow either. And who can resist a set-up like that? He's just playing the straight man really. His comic timing will be impeccable when his speech catches up!

How cute! You always have such cute pictures of your kids! I love it.

That is so adorable! And I don't think you'll confuse him, unless this happens with a lot of words - he'll figure it all out eventually.

The picture is awesome - the crooked tie and the way he's standing make the whole hat thing pricelessly hilarious.

My kids have all been very unfast in language development. But instead of using those bad label-y terms we just call it "our normal." It sounds better, right? Sure.

It's funny and possibly sad how many phrases my husband and I are picking up from Grant. Right now, we regularly repeat, "I yike a new house, Daddy!" because that's what he says five times a day

Classic! One of those things so easily forgotten if not recorded. (Way to record!)

I remember one of my daughters always saying "lellow" for "yellow." When I finally taught her how to say the Y sound, I almost cried--she sounded so much older, and I missed LELLOW!

Funny. Did you really not know what he was saying or did you just enjoy that it sounded like he was saying the other thing? I love those ah-ha moments of motherhood.
