I Like Purple Grapes

Vocabulary is expanding by leaps and bounds over here. One of his favorite things to do is give a shopping list of sorts...mac & cheese, chicken, French fries, pizza, blueberries, strawberries and grapes. Last weekend, as he was swinging, he gave me his list and then said "I like purple grapes." A full sentence...full of opinion.
A full sentence that made this mamma so happy and proud. The words are starting to flow. That doesn't mean that he always remembers to use them- whining to get attention is definitely much easier and in certain circles it's more effective. So, we remind him to use his words and we celebrate when he does. And, we go out and buy those purple grapes wearing our biggest smiles.
