I'm so excited!

Callum slept in for once this morning, his usual wake up time is 6am, but for some reason this morning he decided to sleep in 'till 7 (that's not the exciting bit, I'm getting to that). He sits up in bed, all sleepy eyed with hair going in all directions and a big smile on his face. He grabs his stuffed lion and says "rooooar", then tosses him aside and grabs his bear "beer" he says. Then he points across the room at his stuffed elephant and does the sign for elephant and a great elephant noise impression. Talkative mood this morning, but the best was yet to come.

I pick him up out of his cot and after a big morning cuddle I lay him down on his changing mat. Mark did something, I can't remember what, and that's when the exciting thing happened....

Callum said "Thank you Daddy", we have a sentence!!!!!

[ok, so it's not really a sentence as it doesn't have a verb, but it's multiple words strung together which is a great leap forward considering we've only ever had single words before. Update 9/16 - after looking at this a bit more I've decided that it is really a sentence, my grammar skills always were somewhat lacking]

How do you pronounce your son's name? Congrats on the sentence. Are you sure it's not a sentence? Isn't the "thank" in "Thank you, Daddy" the verb? It's been so long since I've disected sentences that I cannot remember. Really, who cares, I'm just actually being chatty. It's late, I'm tired, so I tend to ramble. Nice Blog.

lisa - Callum is Cal (like california) and Lum like lumber. My English grammar is pretty crappy so maybe it is a sentence. Thanks for stoppig by.

Hey Callum,
See what happens when you sleep in and give your mommy a break, you get blood drawn. I guess it's time to revert back to the early rising.

Whoo-hoo! That is totally a sentence! And how nice that it was a polite one at that. Hugs all around. :)
