Words & Phrases Evan’s Heard That We Hope He Hasn’t Understood

  1. LOL, we probably have a lot of the same words that we hope Mira doesn’t understand.

    Has Evan said any words yet? Mira is still pretty quiet, although she did look at Aaron this weekend and say da DA! I ask her to say mama, and she just shakes her head no. Figures.

  2. 2 Julie

    No real communicative words yet. He learned to say “WOW” over the weekend but he just means it as a sound, not a real word. It’s cute, nonetheless. : )

  3. 3 Rebecca

    Ah, you’ll swear less as he gets older. I used to sound like a TRUCKER. Or a stockyard worker. And now I sound like a kindergarten teacher.
