Words


Corbin doesn't say much. He's learned a lot of signs, but his words are still pretty much mush. I've noticed that he uses the same mush with the same signs every time, though, so I'm calling them words. Instead of trying to spell them out phonetically I took videos of the ones he uses-- all done, more, and up. Of course he babbles all day long and says "mamamama" and "dadadadada"... whether or not he's referring to us, I have yet to determine.

These are so weird, Brit still doesn't believe me that they are actual words. Well... they're not. But Corbin thinks they are, so who am I to argue?

1: All Done


2: More (the "muhmuhmuh" right before I turn off the camera)

3: Up. This one is the weirdest, and takes the longest time to get him to stop whining and talk to me. He holds his hands up in the air (although he's digressed to just holding his ears... I guess holding them all the way up is simply too tiring) and says "eee?" Yeah, sure, that sounds just like "Up".....

On a somewhat random note... he also likes to stand at the top of the stairs and yell "Biiiht?" at the top of his lungs. It doesn't seem to mean anything, but I'm wondering if this is a reflection of how often I stand at the top of the stairs and yell for Brit....

Dah! How cute! I can clearly hear his all-done, and that muhmuhmuh for more is darling! Thanks for the update Jen! Can't wait to hear these cute mumbles in person. :)
