There has been a wonderful burst in Asa's vocabulary over the past couple weeks. It's quite entertaining to try to figure out some of his phrases, but my most favorite is "Doe Momma Doe!" This is every morning as we start our decent down the driveway, I don't know if I'm driving too slow or he's just ready to GO! I always respond with "I'm going, are you ready?" and the chirp from the cherub is "Ready, Go!".
He is also trying to sing along to songs, Dora the Explorer, Mickey Mouse Clubhouse and "It's been a great day" from Fresh Beat Band. He's getting really good at "thumpetty, thump, thump" in Frosty the Snowman and ends the chorus with a very aggressive "GO!" and sign for go - it's so flipping cute and funny!
He's getting even more bossy (I don't know where he gets this from) with his new found words. If you stand in his way of seeing the TV, he says "Momma (or Daddy), oove" waving his little hand. Or if he wants you, "Momma, kimmeh" I say "Come here?" he says "Yah". I'm very proud of all his attempts, this is such a milestone! Now we just need to working on refining - LOL

- My name is Jackie and I am a mother, wife, friend, sister, daughter, cousin to many, and a dreamer of sorts. I dream of many things and one is a life full of acceptance, achievement and success for my Super Hero son Asa. He's got extra good stuff that comes with a little thing called Down syndrome. We live in the beautiful state of New Hampshire with our 2 Bulldogs; Rosie, Frankie and 36 chickens.
