Let's Go!!

"Hi. Hi Poppi. I miss you. I want to go swimming. Buh-bye."

That was Mr. Oliver's first telephone conversation. When I put the phone back to my ear, Nik asked: "Was that Oliver?"

Darn toot'n.

And later tonight, after swimming, Nik prepared to make a quick trip to the pharmacy. Sami and RT were tagging along but I thought I'd keep Oliver home with me. Having none of it, Oliver stood at the top of the steps in the hallway and loudly said: "Let's Go!! Let's Go!!"

Naturally, he went.

And later still, after pjs and after teeth brushing, Oliver stood at the top of the steps again and told me: I want cheese.

"Cheese?" I asked. "Really?"

To which our boy answered: "Yes." then quickly, "I want to eat."

Okaaay then.

Something is definitely going on around here.


  1. You get rid of the SLP and now all this wonderful language. Hmmm.

    Whatever is going on around there, send some of it our way.

    Go Oliver!!!
