- Ri Ri
Those are kind of to be expected, right? So when a new word like shows up like "uh oh", "go", "up", "hi", "bye" and "nigh nigh", as have in the past few days, we get really excited and give them a big reaction so they keep saying it. Now I am constantly on the look out for "real" words to pop up so they can get positive reinforcement and start building their vocabulary.
Yesterday I smelled something stinky. Nolan was closest so I checked him - nothing. I walked in the living room to see Rio and Asher playing on the floor, so I turned to Rio and said "Ewwww something stinks!" I turned to Asher and said "Do you smell something?" and his answer was "Bum". I kid you not. Straight faced. So I asked again "What stinks?". "Bum" was the answer.
Needless to say Rio and I were hysterical. Now truth be told, Asher has been saying "bum" for a little while when I change his diaper. Off comes the diaper and without fail he says it. But to use it in the context of "what stinks?" was way too amusing.
Ahh bum, who knew a 3 letter word could bring such laughs?!
