He says she says

James has been speaking in full sentences as of the last month or so.
At first I couldn't understand him, as he slurred words together and didn't really enunciate.
But, as he has slowed down, I can now make out some very clear sentences.
It is nuts!
I just didn't think it would be so soon.
His most frequent sentences:
"I want dat" if I don't respond he will say it fast and then it sounds like muna muna muna
"I don't want that"
"What is dat?" (also what is this, what are those; his grammer is amazing;)).
"I want up"
"I yike dis" (I like this)
"I don't yike dis"

2 stories:

I was on my bed and James was whining and reaching for me and I said, do you want up? No reply. So I said, "James, if you want up just say up." James replies, "I want up".

And this one surprised me this week. Jammy was walking toward me and his binki fell to the floor. He started to look around but not in the direction of the binki. I said James it's right there. (no reaction, no acknowledgement, no turn of the head, nothing). So I said it 3 more times. Finally with one last ditch effort I said, James your binki is where I am pointing and you aren't looking to see where I am pointing. He turns around, looks at me and says, "I don't want dat!"

Yikes. AT. IT. TUDE!

How does my 14 month old know English so soon?

And in case you did not see my facebook announcement, I got a job working as an inventory planner for Michael Kors in their shoe division. I started this week. I can do a lot of work from home but I will have to go into the office a couple times a week. I will also have to travel to New York and Dallas from time to time. I actually just got back from Dallas today. It was fun to see how the process works. The Fall line is amazing!! It made me excited to be part of such a great company.
