Catalogue

I found out recently that at Luke's 18 month appointment, they'll want to know where he his verbally - what words does he say and how clearly. And I felt like a bad mother because I haven't catalogued these things and I can't even tell you what his first word was. I just know that now he's speaking pretty clearly, and he says the following:

Up
Down
Outside
Car
Choo Choo
Dada
Please
Eat
Moo
Baa
Shoes
Cheese
Ostrich
Kitty
Go
Truck
Duck
Stuck
Hi!
Bath
Peepee
No

I'm sure I'll edit this as I remember the rest. I believe he is starting to use sentences like 'I want truck', but it's hard to tell. It's like the whole first word thing. Once I figure out what he's saying he's surely been saying it for weeks. This should help with his confidence, no doubt!

One thing that I've read people going off on in the internet land is the use of baby talk with small children. I can honestly say that no one Luke knows uses baby talk with him, because he's a small person, and baby talk would not go over well. I am constantly prompting Luke to communicate because this whole randomly whining thing really grates on my nerves. I just can't handle the 'eeeeeheeehhhhheeeehhhh' for no particular reason.

I sure hope Luke doesn't get his spelling from you. CataLOUGE? I used to love getting the Sears cataLOUGE as a kid. It was SO much better than the Sears cataLOG. Perhaps the winter Olympians use the Sears cataLOUGE when they sled down the hill.
