    Oh, the phone conversations skills are fine – if you like random cute noises and occasional heavy breathing!

    I believed with all four of my kids, Di, that the year from 1 to 2 is absolutely unmatched: for cuteness, learning speed, imagination, affection, and so much else. Little babies are adorable; twos are challenging and amazing; each year thereafter has its own joys and rewards (along with frustrations), but age one is THE BEST. He’s an authentic person, with self-awareness, social graces, creativity, general adorableness, and a theory of mind developing at a visible rate. Yay, yay, yay, yay!

      Chris, he’s working on it! He can stand for a second unassisted, and he’s taken one step a couple of times… and he likes practicing! But he’s definitely not what you’d call walking. 🙂

  2. I have several times heard him say (what I interpreted to be) “What’s that?”

    That seems like a more charitable and probable explanation of what he was trying to say about the potty trip.

    Which is funny, in a droll sort of way, but not as jaw-droppingly funny.

    If he could stand up, he could be a stand-up comedian.

  3. (re: “Hohhh”)

    At camp, I tried to teach him to say “grommet” and “nostril” so he could become a little more discriminating with regard to holes.

    He wasn’t ready.

    Di, it just gets BETTER… crazy eh?!? It is weird how I thought every stage was “the best” (well, not the colic stage)… until the next one was even more fun. Enjoy, enjoy, enjoy… oh, and I still owe you a birth story. I haven’t forgotten!
