4/8 - We were reading a non-word book about getting a new baby in the house, and Noah would say "baby" perfectly as he pointed to the baby in each picture.  He now says it often, sometimes referring to himself, sometimes to my tummy, sometimes to a picture of another baby, sometimes randomly.

4/15 - Noah was trying to ride the tricycle but fell sideways smack on his nose and lip.  He had a fat lip for a few days.  Now a cut is still there (he keeps picking at it) but the rest of the scrapes on his nose and between lip and nose are gone.

4/17 - He said "Bible" (ba-boo) 

He will say "Da-dee" or "Da-da" if we prompt him, for Jon.  He has yet to say it on his own initiative.

4/20 - "Water" (wa-doo) is mostly consistent, self-initiated, when pointing to some, though he still signs when he wants a drink. 

He knows left, right, and center - when on a walk with Daddy and Jonathan yesterday, Jon discovered that the stroller is much easier to push if the weight is balanced, and Noah followed all directions perfectly.

Today the boys were looking at the toys in the store while I went shopping. Noah pointed to a basketball and said, "ball" (baw)

Later on, he was playing on the counter. He opened the cupboard, took out a mug and said, "tea?"

(Jon says he said ball yesterday too, in reference to a marble.)

That's particularly interesting because "tea" was the word he signed frequently, clearly, and consistently with me -- more than anything except "please."

I've mentioned before that he can say, "me" but now he uses it frequently, when he wants to be included, or when he wants to do something himself.

4/29 - He said, "one" while holding up his one finger. We had friends visiting and the little girl's mommy "disappeared." Jonathan and Noah went up to check if she had gone to the bathroom. As Noah headed up the stairs, he turned back around to me and signed toilet.

He now says "no" instead of "uh-uh." As any who have had two-year-olds know, this is a mixed blessing.

He's working on "yes" ("yeah") but not consistent yet.

Every day there is a new sound that could be a word in the right context, and I'm confident that those will turn consistent soon.

P.S. Has anyone else used the word "vicariously" in a sentence when speaking to his 22 month old? Sanda got a great kick out of that one.

We all know there's nothing wrong with Noah's receptive language. :)
