A Conversation with My Eleven Month Old

Palmer (happily and energetically): Blah, Blah, dub a dub doo. Ga!
Me: A blub, blub.
Palmer (still happy): Doo do phuf la la nu.
Me: Na na na boo boo.
Palmer (very excited now): a dub ya ya! Heee!
Me (thinking to myself): I really shouldn't talk to him in baby talk. I should use real words so he will learn to talk himself.
Me: Palmer, can you say momma? Momma. Momma, Palmer.
Palmer (suddenly very upset): Umph, waaaaaah!
Me: Yep, that seems about right. That's how you say momma.
