Weekly Noises

22 Jul

Luke’s language development seems to change weekly.  By change, I mean he seems to fixate on a different sound each week, repeat it obsessively and forget whatever noise/sound he was constantly emitting in the previous week.  We are a one-noise kinda household and, most weeks, it’s fascinating what he chooses to yammer on about.  The week that choice was screaming… well, I could have done without that one.

The past month or so has sounded a lot like this:

Week One: Babbling – “Da Da Da” and “Ba Ba Ba”

Week Two: Screaming – high pitched, pterodactyl-like, happy shrieking

Week Three: Drama cough (right, Pops?) – a fake “cough cough” followed by a glance at us with a big smile

The best part of the language development, however, has been the increase in giggles round these parts.  We are still waiting for big, loud belly laughs, but we welcome the giggles.  Usually around 7pm, things get funny.  What things?  The same things we’ve been doing/hearing/seeing all day long.

Last week, our nightly reading of “Good Night Moon” was downright hilarious.  At the first line, “In the great green room…”, Luke was practically slapping his knee with giggles.  It went on for so long that I couldn’t even see the book through the laugh tears pouring down my face.  Thankfully, seeing the book is not a prerequisite for reading it … as I imagine any parent will attest.

And with that, Luke is drama coughing me away from my computer.
