Wordful/Wordless Wednesday: Ipps

We've got a talker on our hands. He talks and talks and talks, from sunup to sundown. While I'm thankful for this, I cringe thinking about how he'll be when he REALLY starts talking in another year or two.

Mr. Geek says I talk to him too much. Ok, so that's true, but aren't you supposed to talk to your kids so they learn language skills?

SoJo loves when we sing to him, so rather than posting a photo, I'm adding this video. Forward in about 10 seconds, because I was having problems editing this down since it's in Quicktime (it doesn't open in Windows Movie Maker, and call me old but I just don't want to learn another piece of editing software).

One of his favorite songs is The Itsy Bitsy Spider, and it cracks me up every time we sing it. He goes around the house, saying "ipps" and trying to do the spider hand gestures. I've even seen him doing this in front of the full-length mirror too, all the while saying "ipps". So cute!

  3. Oh my gosh, you're right! Adorable! It's the look in his eyes and the shape of his cute little mouth when he says "ipps". His mouth puckers up so dang cute like!

  5. He is too cute for words! I just love the concentration as he tries to get his little fingers to become an "ipps."

  6. Oh my goodness he is adorable and watching so intently. My oldest talked early, well all of mine did. With my oldest it was just him and me all day every day, so of course I talked to him and he to me. ;) Very, very cute! Happy WW!

  7. What a great little video -- so many times we don't catch those moments -- so cute!

    It's wonderful that you talk to him all the time; he already knows quite a few words and tries to sing songs!

    My daughter talked early and always had such a large vocabulary, which carried over into early reading and great school grades. Keep on talking! :D

  8. He is so darling...and he is trying so very hard. I cracked up every time I heard "ipps" too! You just wait, there is so much more to come. Make sure you keep one of those spiral notebooks too, to write down all of these things. I did this with both kids and I am so happy I did. I look back through it periodically and it brings back so many memories, and it's fun to read the funny things they said and did! I kept their "journals" in my night stand and tried to write a little something to them in there each day.

  18. Him trying to do the hand gestures pushes the cuteness level over the top.

    This is a great vid.
