These are Steven's first 100 words!!  They are roughly in the order that he said them.  Isn't he holy by ending his list with pray and amen-- he really did just say them this week.  Funny that amen is the last one...or I guess I could say it's providential.  =)

Anyway, you didn't have to read them all, but this is a really big deal in our house.  Steven was a late talker and I started keeping track to make sure that he said the number of words he needed to hit his milestones.  The first 30 came very slowly but then he hit a language explosion around 18 months and the list became fun for me to keep track of what he was learning.  It felt like pulling teeth (not Steven's, of course, cause we worked hard for those too!) for so long that I am rejoicing that we've hit the 100 mark and he continues to pick up new words and phrases weekly.

That is great!!!

Watch out... the late talkers seem to be the ones that eventually have more to say and never stop talking :o)

Way to go Steven! Late starter or not, you are adorable. And I know you are more of a thinker than a talker.
Love,
Mimi

ahhh, Alex was a late talker too, and now he never shuts up. It is also a very LOUD talking that gets a bit embarassing at times. Get ready!!! Steven is doing great!
