Hello and Bye Bye!

Thomas
Thomas is going through a severe affirmation stage for two phrases at the moment..."Hello" and "Bye Bye"...Every morning (while he and I are still in bed) it's "Hello Daddy...Hello Daddy...Hello Daddy" (getting frustrated) "Uh oh..." (pause) "Hello Daddy...Hello Mummy?"...until I eventually appear at the door (rubbing my eyes and yawning) to a triumphant "HELLO DADDY!!!!! UP!!! UP!!! BILK!!!" (the current word for Milk), it's then (as we stumble together around the house) "Hello Shower, Hello Bathoom", "Bye Bye Shower", "Hello Stairs", "Hello Door", "Bye Bye Stairs", "Hello Window", "Hello Gaaarden", "Hello Cwouds" (if it's cloudy) -or- "Hello Ducks" (if it's not, as he knows ducks live in the pond at the end of the garden), then while I'm warming up his milk "Hello thats-mummies-laptop" (prompting a panicked dash to put it up out of danger), we then get five minutes of silence (apart from the sound of milk vanishing), followed by "Bye Bye Daddy - Work - Train - Toot Toot!!", which is usually very sweet, "Yes that's right I'll be off in a little while, probably better get dressed first though", but actually really quite sad when he does it on a Saturday or Sunday morning, as he's obviously expecting me to vanish any minute...

"It's okay Thomas, Daddy isn't going to work today, it's the weekend, we can play all day"..."Daddy HUG!"... ;)

Such a cutie.. I got Mummy, more bilk thank you! And his 'lub you'(love you) is just too cute for words.... Oh and when he answers his name, both first and surname! So clever!!
