Ashlee is Mama of one darling boy. A 28 week early bird, now 1 and some change, doing beautifully. She lives near Chicago with her sweetheart husband and French Bulldog. She's a thinker not afraid to get her silly on. Babywearer, veggie queen, photography nut. Before the domestic days Ashlee was pursuing a future in developmental psychology but has happily shifted gears in favor of staying at home and couldn't imagine doing anything else. In her free time (ha!) you can find her whipping up babyslings, holding down the fort at Mama Speaks and spotlighting as an Itsy Bitsy Yoga Instructor.


Our little talker has been on a spree, coming up with 2-3 new words a day the past couple of weeks. My favorites this week-
  • Bubbles (bah-bowls)
  • People (peee-puhl)
  • Teeth (always said in a tiny whisper)
and drum roll please
  • penis (loud and clear of course!)
I'm very glad that we're teaching him the appropriate names for things, but he'll already happily show you where his and Oliver's are... I have a feeling this one might get us in a bit of trouble!

    He is a great little talker, my goodness! Our favorties right now are 'all gone' and 'where'd it go?', we have a long way to go before we get to proper anatomy names I think :) top

    Kids know no tact do they? LOL We teach the real names for things too. Much better that way, if only it didn't have the potential for embarrassment. top

    Dont worry about it too much. Arthur says boobs or boobie. I try not to laugh when he says it but I always cant help myself. At least hes not like my brother when he was little he would run up to girls when he was little and grab there chest and say pillows. top

    Ha that's so funny that he says it loud and proud! I'm very into making sure body parts are called their real names but I have this freaking horrible habit of calling a penis a peebug thanks to my MIL (and our diaper changing song). I really have to be consious of it and make more of an effort.

    I love when they do the whisper, it's so precious. top
