Exponential vocabulary expansion

I don't know if I can keep up with all of this, but we'll at least capture some.

A very short time ago, I took Jack downstairs while I worked on the sewing machine. When I was done, I asked him if he wanted to stay downstairs or come back upstairs with me. He shook his head, so I left him down there. Moments later, he said; "Hi Mommy. All none (done)." So I asked him if he wanted to come back upstairs and Jeffry heard him say; "Yeah." Jeffry then put him on the stairs and followed him up.

It seems he's very eager to speak in full sentences, but we're only able to catch a few words at the most.

So, the last couple of days have included the following words: blankie - sometimes, it's blue blankie, bonkers (what I say when he falls or bumps his head), Emily (from his favorite "bi' puppy" or Clifford books), plum (from Little Jack Horner), yup, yeah, uh-uh, ready, uff da, applesauce, belly button, Peef, nigh' nigh' (someone going to bed) and bus.

At least twice, he's also wanted my help with something (ie. trying to find something that he threw down the laundry chute) and he'll come pull on my pants and say; "num on Mommy" (come on).

Earlier this evening, I entered Green Mill ahead of the boys and when they came in, Jack was saying; "Mommy go?" at Jeffry's prompting.

Also after much prompting, he finally called his lovie something - "lovely" although it seems to come out more like "bluvlie".

During a conversation about television the topic of BBC's programming came up and there was much mention of Doctor Who. At some point Jack repeated what he was hearing and said "Doctor Who".

Leesha has had her cute moments as well. Since we've scaled down Christmas at our house, she only got a couple of presents, one of which was the discontinued pink dragon Webkinz. Very fun to see her open that and watch her eyes light up with wonder. Grandpa David and Grandma Darlene also gave her an mp3 player which brought about the same response. Now, we'll have to see if the mp3 player goes the route of her ipod shuffle to "Small Electronic's Heaven" and if the fascination of the Webkinz lasts longer than the one for the Washable Doodle Bear we got her a few years ago (that must have gone to "Stuffed Animal Who-Knows-It's-Whereabouts".
