Julian's ever-expanding vocabulary...

Must be in the handbook.

Sounds normal to me. And in some cases, it might even be a good thing.

Definitely normal. In this case it was "no, I don't want to drink that cup of juice that I just know you laced with medicine, because why else would you have let me drink full-strength juice?" But in fewer words, of course.

Well, that's understandable. Today at a yeshiva interview, my middle kid told the principal, "No, I don't want to," when asked to learn Torah for him. The yeshiva almost didn't accept him for that. I think we got in because my brother-in-law promised to tutor him or something. Does not do much for my parenting self-esteem, let me tell you.

*snicker* I know I shouldn't find that funny, but I do. Poor kid asked to learn Torah on demand. How old is he? I wouldn't let it affect your esteem too badly.

It could be worse. My sister's first sentence was "I have poo."
estherchaya From: estherchaya Date: August 1st, 2005 02:52 pm (UTC) (Link)
Yeah, he doesn't use a whole sentence for that. He truncates it to "poo?" always as a question.

For the same reason Grace's first coherent word was "no." Because those are the *important* things, the ones that really motivate them to figure out how to say it right.

Julian's first coherent word was "no" also, but I refuse to acknowledge it as such. His second coherent word was "banana" believe it or not. I'm much more interested in calling "banana" his first coherent word.

Yeah, Grace's was "up," which I usually consider her first word. Among other things, it was after she started saying Up that she began to use "no" as a single word rather than a sort of "na-na-na-na-na" form of whine, so I have a kind of excuse.

Grace's favorite word is *still* "up." We have concluded that her coat of arms should have the motto 'Excelsior'.

Just be glad Julien's first sentence was repeatable!

You should have heard what one of my cousin's first sentences was...well, no, you shouldn't. Let's just say it was a tad salty and leave it at that. But you get the point!

good point.

Sounds like a great sentence to me.

well it worked. And it was in perfect context. He didn't want to take medicine and he'd tried saying no a few times, so he tried something new. Admittedly, the sentence stunned me into forgetting about the medicine for about 5 minutes, so it served it's purpose.

If my chair didn't have arms, I'd have just fallen out of it from laughing.
