He Speaks

I swear Eli talks. Even though sometimes it's his own language that only half sounds like English. But luckily I'm learning his language with him. So I thought I'd document his cute first words. For the past three days I've been chasing Eli around the house with a camera waiting for anything resembling a word to escape his mouth. Luckily I got most of his vocabulary documented. Except of course mama. Which he only uses in extreme circumstances. So I guess I'll count my blessings that we had no extreme circumstances occur in the last three days.

Anyway, enjoy the video. I wrote the words in the lower right-hand corner of the screen since I'm assuming you're not fluent in Elish.

Very cute! His vocabulary is pretty much the same as Logan's and Logan only says mama in extreme circumstances too, how funny.

I'm amazed you captured all those words with the camera. And I could understand every single word (thanks to the word prompter in every frame). Cute little jabbering baby.

Stuck is my favorite. Not sure why.

I loved monkey. His no was pretty good also.

Caroline was watching this and when he said "Eli" she said, "He said Eli!" I guess she understands Elish without the benefit of the subtitles.

Wow -- Great video editing -- action every scene. I loved all the day-to-day activities he does that generate his words, especially "stuck".
