Sit. Yes, Sit.

My baby Bean is now eighteen months. He says a lot of words, albeit imperfectly. Except "no". He says that one very well. I haven't counted, but I think his current vocabulary contains around thirty words.

Just this past week he learned "baby", "sit" (from Mommy instructing him to sit the bathtub), and on the way to church we discovered he knew the words "a game" (not surprising since his brothers are often requesting to play a video game) and "all done" (this after he was served the Sacrament in church). He asks for "more" all the time, not only when he wants more of something, but if he just wants it. He stretches his little hand out and yells "MEEEEEEM!" It gets a bit repetitive after a while.

He's adorable, saying all his words in that cute little voice. The only problem is when he pronounces the word "sit", he--um--says the letter 's' as if it were 'sh'.

I don't think I need to explain further.

So, when he's saying "sit, sit, sit" his siblings are rolling on the floor, laughing as if it's the funniest thing ever. Which of course, makes Bean say it more.

I tell them to ignore him, because it's normal for babies to accidentally say naughty words. Professor's eyes bugged out when I told him of a particularly bad word he came out with as a baby. So now they try to hold in their laughter when their baby brother imitates a sailor, and they look like tomatoes about to explode in a pressure cooker.

So, I'll hope for the best, that Bean's swearing will be limited to ignorance. At least it's not like his spicy brother Lion--

But that's a tale best saved for another day.

One of mine accidentally swore the other day and it startled me pretty bad. My husband totally laughed though!

Oh the things I have to look forward to! Claira's beginning to say all kinds of words now, and it's highly entertaining.

As an adult can I blame my swearing on ignorance??

Ah sit, that's hilarious! =D

Okay, that may have been bad, but I couldn't resist. Your baby sounds really adorable - as do your other kids. Well, yeah, your entire fam. LOL
