Philip learned the word "No" last week. I'm pretty proud that we got through 18.5 months before he started to say no!  His little voice is so sweet that hearing him say it is really cute (most of the time).  He uses it at funny times too, like last week when he didn't like the sippy cup he was using and he was telling it no while trying to drink out of it.  Or over the weekend when he was saying no to his crayons (I think he was having a hard time putting them back in their box).

Andy thinks Philip uses the word no to answer any question, even if he means yes.  Although he started saying yes a few months ago, he dropped it after a week or two and we haven't heard the word again.  Hopefully soon!

Last week I was trying to video tape Philip dancing and he came running over to grab the camera.  After letting him hold it for a little bit I told him it was time to put it away.  He didn't agree with me and accidentally hit the record button while he said no and crawled onto the floor to throw a tantrum. So, here is a recording of Philip saying his new word.

And on a happier note, here he is dancing to the music that his toolbench plays.


  1. I LOVE IT! So cute! Now he just needs a dancing partner. :)

  2. He is so cute!! Wish he and Abigail could dance together- though not if he's going to teach her "no" haha! :) cute videos!
