Mom and I were talking last night about how Charlie has a lot to say, only no one knows what on earth he's saying. His vocabulary pretty much includes ball, banana, button, uh-oh!, da (there), du (drink) and mama. Mama, you're thinking, "How sweet." Except that 'Mama' means 'Mama, please get me something.'
So just three days after Dixie makes the classic announcement, "Mommy, Charlie knows his name! He said 'Boofer!' " Charlie speaks.
He looked Melody squarely in the eye and said, "My ball." And he meant it.
