Quork is Spanish...did you know?

Oliver likes to learn how to count in different languages.  His personal favorite is Spanish.  He's got those numbers down, well, until he gets to seven, then he switches to German.

As a result, Oliver likes to make up words in Spanish.

Noodley = Don't know
Quork = No
Yim = yam

The list goes on and is added to each day.

Another thing Ollie does is make up words and then defines them.  A typical conversation goes something like this:
Oliver: Mom, do you know what "slerm" means?
Me: What does it mean?
Oliver: It's a thing (the key phrase in almost every one of his definitions) that makes loud noise.

Having a child 3+ years old is good times.  A great stage.  I often think throughout the day, "Man, this is fun! And this kid is hilarious!" But then again, all stages have their highlights.

Ollie fits inside the same box in which a Louisville Slugger was delivered.

I love this post. I was very much like a slerm as I laughed out loud about that cute Ollie and his love or words. Did I use that correctly? I hope so.

what a cute picture of a fun boy. I agree. I love, love, love newborns but aren't they loads of fun as their personalities develop and they interact with us and the world. What a brain that Oliver has!
