Yes, Doctor, He Has Two Word Phrases

Setting: Pediatrician's office, 2 year check-up
Cast: Two-year old boy, just stopped crying. Unruffled father, note-taking mother, patient pediatrician.

Doctor: His weight is at the fiftieth percentile, and his height is about sixtieth percentile. He was wiggling so much that it's hard to tell. How is his mobility?

Dad: He's climbing everything.
Mom: And pretending to do tai chi with his grandparents.

Doctor: Good.

Two year old: Waaaah!
Dad: It's ok honey, we'll be done soon.

Doctor: Does he eat well?

Mom: A decent variety. He's a pretty happy kid, when he's not in your office. Sorry about the wailing!

Doctor: Don't worry about it. Does he use any two word phrases yet?

Two year old: GO HOME!

Hilarious. With Bub, as you know, we had to wait until well after his second birthday before he began using words in combination. Pie, on the other hand, is capable of saying, "[Bub!] Come get souvlaki!"

Ha! You tell him, kiddo! Nothing like a demonstration to effectively answer a question.

Confession: I stretched the story just a bit, because he was saying "go home" a whole lot during the whole session, not just at that moment, but it was too good to pass up!
