beautiful boy: "It was chocolate. It was cookies and crumpet flavour."
Mummy: "I think you mean cookies and cream."
beautiful boy: "No cookies and crumpet."


  1. I love love this post. He sounds like so much fun. My little one only just started putting words together to form sentences and I am loving it. It can be so entertaining. With baby brain I keep forgetting his cute new phrases so I started Phrase Day Friday the end of last year so I can look back and see just how cheeky is was. Awesome photo too. You must have big windows in your house all your photos are amazingly bright. I need to cut out a few hundred in my dark dungeon. lol

    1. It's certainly entertaining when they get talking, and such a good idea to record them because they get so quickly forgotten.
      And our windows really aren't that big, they just point the right way so that we get some lovely morning light. We have hardly any light after lunch time though, so I have to get up and start snapping in the mornings. x

  2. Ah these are getting better each month. "Oh no, I broke my fish finger. I want to eat my fish finger safely." Thats my favourite one! So funny! xx

    1. I think they are too, he seems to get funnier as he gets more clever with his use of language. x

  3. Hahahah, he is so adorable!!!!

  4. Oh these are so funny - I love astronaut Nanny and astronaut Mummy going on an adventure!

    1. He had an entire day where he managed to make absolutely everything something to do with being an astronaut and going into space, it was pretty impressive really. And very hilarious. x

  8. These are so cute! How lovely to write them all down so they are not forgotten. I am looking forward to Monkey talking! #wotsofunee
