Oh, I love this time of year! The weather isn't quite so hot and outdoor play is completely doable. I've been keeping W inside most of the summer due to the intense heat, but these last few weeks have been beautiful!
W always seems to be learning new "words" and his latest mumble has been dooby doo. He says dooby dooby dooby doo ALL the time, and John and I have never been able to figure out what he meant by that. Then, one day while I was changing him, he said it again. When I put him on the floor he immediately walked to his books. Then it hit me! He was saying Scooby Doo! He's got several Scooby Doo books, which are hands down his favorite books to read. I picked up his Scooby Doo Goes To The Zoo book and he seemed thrilled that I finally understood what he was saying! I'm going to have to look for a Scooby Doo stuffed animal, as he loves barking like a dog as well.
Still doesn't say mama on a regular basis, but he's got "Dooby Doo" down pat! Too cute!
