This afternoon I went into Johnathan's room to get him up from his nap. He was in a really happy mood and was jumping up and down in his crib when he saw me walk in the room---too cute! I walked up to him, and he gave me a little playful shove in his excitement. I put up my hand and said "don't push your mommy" in a silly voice, and this is what he said to me. . ."high-five!" Wow! I walked closer, hand still up, and he smacked it with his own little "five" and said high-five again! Clear as day! This is the first time that he has said a new word all on his own, meaning that he didn't just hear me say it and then repeat it. I am so proud of him!!! His little vocabulary is expanding rapidly and includes the following:
5) Thank-you (Edited original post to add this one that I forgot! Thanks, Jamye!)
That's the order that he's said them in too. He will also say mama, but I'm not sure if he knows for sure that mama means me! Haha! I'd like to think that he knows, but won't write it down as a for sure quite yet!
