Lincoln Talking

I would say a few weeks ago, Lincoln really picked up his talking.  He really didn't have any words other than "Hi" until recently.  A few weeks ago he started calling everyone 'Ma!" and attempting the first sound with a lot of words.  Now, at about 19 1/2 months, I'm impressed with how many words he seems to be using consistently.  Of course, a normal person wouldn't be able to understand him, but I would call them "almost" words.  I figured I'd list them to see how many he is really using occasionally:

- Ma (Mommy)
- Da (Daddy)
- Ba (Ben)
- Mimi
- Nana, Papi and Pop Pop when prompted
- Balloon
- Hot
- Hat
- Ball
- Baby
- Water
- More (usually only when prompted)
- Shoe
- Barks excitedly when he sees a dog
- Moos when he sees a cow
- Quacks when he sees a duck
- Makes it known when he hears or sees a truck, but doesn't really have a specific word for it yet.  Sometimes, it's a "T" sound.
- Bowl
- Ke (for ketchup and syrup)
- Boot (maybe :))
- Off
- Eye
- Nose
- Yes (No is currently just a shake of the head)
- Bubble
- Bye Bye
- Boo (as in peek-a-boo)

That's all I can think of right now....but we are successfully making progress!
