Is this an Obama Baby or what?

My little Eli is really growing fast. He’s been making talking sounds for a long time, and he tries to imitate people who talk to him. He kept saying some word that sounded like okra, so we tried to get him to make a long O sound. Here’s a youtube video of my husband trying to get him to say Obama. He comes pretty close to saying it. Of course, according to my mommy ears he actually said Obama. He also likes to say uncle, good, and his favorite made up word is “enguh.”little-eli-says-obama.jpg

    He looks like he’s just about to say something. Something witty and engaging.

    He is the most adorable male baby I have seen this week (sorry, but my weekend was spent with my cousin’s baby daughter and my boyfriend’s one-year-old niece, so they take the cake overall…)

    You are a very lucky mother.

    Oh my goodness, that baby needs someone to eat his cheeks. Look at them! They’re so edible!

    Our 15 month old likes to wear her Obama button and calls it “bama” — we made sure she saw Obama on TV so she didn’t think “Obama” means “button”.

    Of course, one of her first two-syllable sounds was “ah-goo”, and her brother insists it was “Al Gore” — months before mama or dada!
