For those who haven’t studied Blake as a second language, here’s a little cheat sheet. I’m getting a crash course right now. I’ve been meaning to write this stuff down for quite some time because although I think I’ll remember all the cute little intricacies of his baby talk, I know from talking to other moms that I’ll forget. And since (obviously) my blog will be published for all of us to peruse for years to come, this is the place to document such memories. I have been intending to do this for awhile, and now that he’s starting to say much of this correctly, I’ve been reminded to get on it. Plus, as Pastor Dabney used to say, “Good intentions and crying children should be carried out immediately.”
Honestly, this one’s more for the grandparents.
