Language log: 18 months

At 18 months Kelton has learned to communicate effectively with a combination of signs, words and sounds. It is exciting to see the world through his interpretation. He is learning at a rapid rate and is coming out with new words constantly. Since 18 months is such a milestone I've listed all the signs, words and sounds he now knows. Here we go:

more, all done, help,
eat, drink, water, milk, apple
lights, music, hat, phone, comb, toothbrush
airplane, train, car, bus,
turtle, bug, bird, elephant, cat, bee, butterfly, fish, frog, flower

uh-ohh, hot
Mama, Dada, Nana, Papa, Sierra ("ee-ra-ra"), baby,
down, spoon, broom, moon, popper, "just gas", goop-goop,
Gack (from Dr. Seuss), castle, shovel, kitty, goose,
couscous, ohhs (cheerios), banana

woof-woof (also his name for dog), roar (used for tigers and lions), oink (used for pigs), cough (used to copy us when we cough or when I say I want to get some coffee)
