I've created a monster.

     Sage is officially obsessed with my iPod touch. For some reason I think he calls it "Dee" (not sure why). Last night he was in his chair and he was screaming bloody murder for "DEEEEEE. DEEE!" I didn't know what the heck he was talking about so I started picking up things, "this... This? THIS? Just tell me what you want" followed by him yelling "DEEEE!" Hahahah. I finally picked up the iPod and he seemed happy. He did the same thing this morning. Maybe "Dee" means down and I am just occupying him with the iPod. Hmmm. (**Lightbulb moment**)
     At any rate, he still loves that thing. He knows all of his shapes now, which amazes me. I love how he says oval and diamond, "Oho" and "Monmond". It makes me melt a bit. he's been slow with his talking but the things he does know makes me feel all warm and fuzzy.
     We went do dinner a few nights ago with some friends and I use the iPod to occupy Sage when he gets fussy. It works fabulous and at least it is educational. The people in line and at the table next to us were all but freaking out about how well he seemed to navigate through the screens and how he does it all on his own. Aaron is convinced that I should record Sage on my Flipcam playing with it and send it to Apple so that maybe they might make him their spokesbaby. You know, like the e*trade commercials. If I remember, I'll see about getting him on film tonight so at least you guys can see it for yourselves.
     I know I forgot to do my 15 week update last week. When I say it was a rough week I wasn't joking. Lots of weird things went on and most were to do my own fragile emotional status but all of which have waned which is great so I'll do my 16 week tomorrow and give you the details of tonight's baby appointment.

P.S. Sage fits on his tricycle now... Such a big boy!


  1. Isn't it amazing the things they get attached to? I love the pic of him on his tricycle. Our boys are getting so big!

  2. Marley has been a bit slower in the speech department then some of her peers as well but I just try to think of it as a more prolonged period of getting to be impressed by the words she learns. Plus hopefully it will take longer for her to learn the words I'm less fond of.

    And I also just had a lightbulb moment today when I realized that Marley was saying "ee" (eat) but she didn't want just anything. It had to be a cookie (graham cracker). I was getting really frustrated trying to feed her and she was telling me no after asking to eat. So now I know what she wants and I still have to say no. Doh!
