What Is He Saying?

Well last week we had the pleasure of a visit from the grandson!  We picked him up from his house in Anderson, SC.  As we pull in the driveway... all you can see is this great big smile on his cute face.  Before I could get out of the car, he runs into my arms! After sufficient hugs to Gramma... He starts to yell " Grampa... Grampa" and off to jump into his Grampa's awaiting arms!

He asks his mom for his shoes.... he was ready to go!

Once in the car... packed and ready to go... Damien starts talking!  Uh.. Oh.. Jim and I look at each other, both thinking... What the heck is he talking about?   Time to learn "Damienese" again!  Last visit... it took us a couple of days to start to understand his toddler speak, but then he didn't have that big of a vocabulary!

Finally arriving back home, he settles in , and was so glad that his "woom" was still the same!  He runs around and around in his room... shouting " mine, mine, mine !"  Now this is a new developement,  and I'm hoping that his sweet disposition and the ability to share has not been lost! 

We decided to take Damien to the park for a cookout, three guesses on the main course... Yep.. Hot Dogs! We had a great time!  He found a big red balloon behind the fence, that gramma had to figure out a way to get , what Damien called a... red ball!  Mission acclomplished!

The next morning... we awoke to bwooon... bwooon!  He grabs my hand a drags me to his room!  " bwoon" he says.... I respond by saying what's a bwoon.. trying to pronounce it just like he did.. Now it's hard enough to find lost toys in his room, even if you know what you are looking for!  He repeats this word...louder, slower and more drawn out... as if he were talking to someone that can't understand english!

We looked and looked, me lifting up numerous finds, is this a bwooon?  Nooooooooooo, noooooo bwooon!  after searching his room we decided to look in the living room... in a high pitched "BWOON"  he runs to the corner and holds up a barely, filled with air, red balloon!

By the end of our visit, Jim and I had almost,... I said almost,... learned Damienese!
I'm back!

I love your pics! Reading your blog just makes me smile! I know just what you mean about the language thing - my "adopted Mexican Grandkids" will try to tell me something but it's half in Spanish and half in English with a Mexican accent. They are so patient trying to get me to understand with the same louder voice, slower speaking! Sounds like you guys had a great Damien visit!

He is just too cute. About the language thing...my Dad used to tell my oldest that he was a Russian spy. Tommy would repeat "I's a Roooosin pie!" One of mine replaced Ls with Ys, ok we adjusted to that, but the younger one replaced Ys with Ls. You did well getting back in the groove so quickly and I bet Audrie had no trouble understanding anything from get go. Have a Happy Easter!

BSM, That's so funny you said that about him and Audrie.. I found them often on the couch whispering and giggling...They really are best buddies and only 5 months apart!!! You don't think they were talking about me do you?

Boy is he cute and he looks like you Terry. You and Jim are lucky to have him close enough to visit. Andrew is our 10 year old and his sister is 6. when she was 2 she learned to say "his name" only it was pronounced in an unfortunate way. Picture us at the park and her screaming for Andrew in her loudest outdoor voice "Anus"....we got a lot of odd looks. Shewill never live it down.

Hey CG! Too funny! Don't you just love two year old speak? We had a blast this visit! We wanted to keep him two weeks this time but the kids just missed him so much... I can understand, but maybe when he's 3!

I have a three year old nephew in my life that loves to talk up a storm (NOT very understandable). His name is Dallas....so we decided that this must be the way folks from Dallas talk LOL!

About Me
I was a working mother of 2 boys! I didn't have much time for cooking... now that the boys are grown and on their own... I have been enjoying learning and appreciating the art of cooking. I started with a day of baking with my mother in law and I was hooked! Not to mention my new stepkids... what was two... now is four! Our family is growing we now have a grandson, Damien, and one on the way! My grandson loves his visits with Gramma and Grampa...We spend quality time in the kitchen snd chronical our visits here on AR!
My favorite things to cook
I love to bake! It is my therapy...I love to buy and read all types of recipe books ( call me old fashion ) but it's fun to pick out 1 recipe in a new book and try it the day I get the book!
My favorite family cooking traditions
My husband and I have great times cooking meals together! When the kids come to visit we let them request their menu of choice. Funny twist... my two boys request Jim's culinary feasts... Jim's two request Stepmom's dinner delights! Works out fine at the end of the day!
My cooking triumphs
Check out my pics, the wedding cake? It was my 1st attempt at a wedding cake... can you believe it... I still can't!
My cooking tragedies
so many... hard to pick just one! but isn't that the joy of cooking?
