the things boo says...

It's been awhile since I did a "Benjamin-speak" post. His vocabulary grows every day, I think, and he now uses little sentences when he speaks, too. I thought I'd share some of the more common phrases that he uses all the time ~ they are so cute, and I don't want to forget them!

"Mama! Sun up! Play!" - this is my wake up call most mornings :)

"No seep" or "no nap" - this is what I usually hear at bedtime, LOL. It is often followed by "Un! Hi!" (Run! Hide!), and me chasing after him!

"No sool, say" = No school, stay. This is what Ben says when the other two are leaving for school ~ he wants them to stay and play!

"Pee-buh jeh" = Peanut butter and jelly sandwich

"Sam ham" - this stands for Sam-I-Am, from Dr. Seuss' Green Eggs and Ham. Ben loves the book and the movie version, too!

"Een oh. Eh top." = Green go. Red stop. He says this a lot when we are driving and he sees traffic lights!

"EmNih" = Em, Nick. He usually says this as one word, especially when he's calling them to come play with him!

"Booyah!" - Em and Nick taught him to say this when he is excited about something. He also says "woo hoo!" and "Oh, yes!" LOL These always come with an arm gesture, too!

"Oh. Sure!" - Ben's normal positive response when we ask him to do something.

"Two" - this means there is more than one of something (could be 2, could be 3 or 4, etc...)

"Ee seh-sen" (Three seven) - this means there is a lot of something. When he counts, he goes 1, 2, 3, 7 :)

"Blue zoom" - he says this when he wants to go somewhere in our car (which IS blue)

"Say home" = Stay home. When he DOESN'T want to go somewhere in the car!

"Say?" = What does this say? He will point at words and ask this.

"Too loud!" - This can mean that something is too loud, but it usually means he just wants the tv or radio or whatever shut off (turning the volume down isn't good enough, LOL)

"Eee en" = The end. This means he is done with something, whether it's a book or a tv show or a game he's playing.
