Abraham's words

Aside from mama and dada, Ham is starting to say other words or at least mimic sounds. It's pretty cool. Here's what we've got so far.

bah = ball
buh = bug
buh = bird
buh = anything else that he points to
guh-buh = garbage
buh-guh-buh-guh-buh = your guess is good as mine
ti-ti-ti = tickle tickle
muh, muh = meow, meow
da = down
nah, nah = nurse, or what a goat says
He also signs “more” and “all done” and makes a dog noise with his mouth closed.

Tis the season for pleasin

I am not a fan of inflatable Christmas decorations. In the day, they are unsightly, and at night, invisible. No, if you really want to warm my little heart, you've gotta have lights. I don't care what color. I don't care what size. I don't care how intricate the design. It's definitely all about the more the merry(christmas)ier. White light icicles along the roof. Windows in blue outline. Multicolored flashing bushes. Slather it on. Your house could light up the whole street and I still would not find it tacky. There's something just a little magical about cold weather and colored lights.
