While greeting him in his crib every morning:

“HI Mommy! HI Mommy! Where Daddy go? Where Daddy go? Daddy EXershize? Changea diaper? Have pants? Have pants? Make faffle? Have peanut butter? Where Riley go? Have MILK? You like HORSES, Mommy?”

While getting his breakfast ready:

“Sit onna counter? Sit onna counter? Make faffle, Mommy? Faffle hot? Where STICK HORSE go? I don’ KNOW! Where STICK HORSE go? Sita counter? Have PEANUT BUTTER, Mommy? Riley have PEANUT BUTTER? Have SYRUP? Here Riley! Here Riley! Have MILK, Riley?”

While sitting at the table:

“You like HORSES Mommy? You like SHEEP? I like a COW! Dere’s a bird Mommy right DERE right DERE! Riley dere’s a BIRD! Right DERE! Have FORK, Mommy? Have FORK? Have NAPKIN? I DID IT! I DID IT! GOOD BOY, DYLAN! WIPEA FACE!”

While driving to school:

“I SEE A BUS! I SEE A BUS! RIGHT DERE MOMMY RIGHT DERE! I SEE A MOTOCYCLE RIGHT DERE! I SEE A BIKE MOMMY! RILEY SEE A BIKE? SEE A BIKE RILEY? RIGHT DERE, RIGHT DERE!”

While hanging out after dinner:

While sitting in the rocking chair before bed:

“Read Boohoo Baby? Read Boohoo Baby? Have itsy spider? Sing row row boat. Have . . . Pookie.”

While lying in bed, tucked under a blanket, every night, after I pat his butt and murmur “Shave and a haircut . . . ”

“TWO DILLIES.”

LOVE THIS! I love how he tells himself “good boy”

So tell me, DO YOU LIKE HORSES?

I just came up with a theory. Boys talk non-stop when they are little and run out of things to say when they become men. LOL

That’s some face-melting adorability. My son is 2 and a half, and he starts most mornings be asking, “Can I has a pancake?” At some point almost every day, he also asks if he can watch “New friends New friends.” AKA that episode of “Yo Gabba Gabba” with Jack Black.

WE HAVE THE EXACT SAME THING. It really reached a head when we were driving back from Wisconsin this weekend and for 4.5 hours in the car he NEVER STOPPED TALKING. It was impressive.

“Hey mommy? Hey mommy? I buckle it. . .ALL BY MYSEF! Eat da yogert dis morning. . .ALL BY MYSEF! Ooooh cowded out der, cow say moo milk come from COW mommy!”

When our son whines needlessly, we always ask him, “Are you the boo-hoo baby?”

I love that book.

Oh, the cuteness. I was just at the library, and it must have been the start of story time for toddlers, because there was a huge influx of 2 year olds, all engaged in Dylanesque conversation. I about melted in a puddle of goo, because they were all so freaking adorable. My baby will be 16 years old this summer, and it seems like just yesterday…cue “Sunrise, Sunset”

Yup, I actually got teary eyed.

subtitute “Bus” for “autobus” and “horses” for “chien” and this is a mirror image to my house…on any given day…..wow, have I never EVER appreciated quiet more than now.

Awww, this makes me look forward to when my little guy explodes in a flurry of chatter. I’m really excited to have him talk back more instead of me talking to him and hearing nothing back and feeling like a flipping idiot.

As much as you think this will never end, I SO SO miss it. The constant chatter. I wish I had video taped more of nothing.

Good Boy Dylan!

I like Lena’s theory. It’s already happening here, the five year old boy unable to form a sentence about his day at preschool, while his sister spouts fountains of nouns.

I love reading Dylan entries because he’s only 5 months older than my guy, so it’s always amazing to me the bounds he’s projected to make if I’m using your son as a yardstick. I know it must fry your eardrums after awhile but, damn, this is so cute.

His enthusiasm for life is really inspirational! And totally cute, too!

Oh. My. God. This had me cracking up. My son is the same age and I swear reading this was like listening to my own child. Hilarious and so true!

Oh, this is exactly where we are with my 27 month old daughter. She’s also big on “What doing, Mama? What doing? Put away dishes? Dishes cleen? What doing, Mama? What doing?” Etc., etc.

They are adorable in spite of it, though.

Carrie

Love it. I get that with my five-year old daughter still–without most of the endearing mispronunciations anymore. *sob* We try not to stifle her exuberant personality, but HUSH! WE’RE TRYING TO WATCH CASH CAB, FOR PETE’S SAKE! *cough* What?

My son is exactly the same age and sounds exactly the same! Except generally he adds the colors of whatever he sees …

Becky Mochaface

You gotta admit that the running tally of what he sees is extremely helpful. What if you pass by a house on fire and he’s the only one to notice? He could save lives!

So freakin’ cute!

He’s wonderful. I know he wears you out sometimes (my 6 year old never stops talking either. He’s just more articulate and much LOUDER), but what a lovely little boy.

BTW…I get requests daily to see the Dilly dance (both kids were in the room when I played watched that video). They think he’s adorable too.

I love this picture! It is second to the one where you have the exercise ball on his back and he is looking like, “Whoa, what’s happening on my back?” LOL

Dylan is just too much cute. Has he gotten to ride a pony yet, or do you fear that would cause a head explode-y level of excitement?

How does Riley react to all the chatter?

Also, @Lena – I am cracking up!!

Awesome post, Sundry. Love your little family!

Oh my. I have a chatterbox too, only she’s 4.5 and going strong.

That Dylan is a gem. I love his self-confidence – “Good boy Dylan!” – and his enthusiasm. May he never lose either.

Courtney

I’m pretty sure this is what I’m in for in a year or two, if the constant babbling my 7 month-old is doing now is any indication (seriously, nonstop: http://www.flickr.com/photos/dimplescfw/4471226033/). Dylan is adorable – did you let him have the peanut butter or what?

Jennifer

That’s the cutest darn thing I’ve heard in a while! My 20-month-old son’s vocabulary is expanding every day, but most of his conversations still consists of babbling with an occasional word we recognize. But those words are getting more abundant in his talks, so I’m sure we’re in for the same thing very soon! I just love this age….

Melanie

Yer boy slays me.

(Especially his fondness for Giant Red Ribbed-for-Your-Pleasure Cyclops Dildo.

Err…I mean Muno.)

He has MANNERS! SCORE!!

This was so sweet. He’s adorable. You must just munch on those cheeks all day. I love how you’re able to capture the way he talks with your writing. I can just hear it. It helps that my 2yo does it too, and it’s fun to see how similar/different they are. These little slices of life are precious. :)

More people love your kids than any other kids in the world. You know this right?
And Becky Mochaface? Right on the money, there could be something that he sees that no one else does, comments and saves lives! It could happen. And we will all say we knew him when!

@Lena: sadly, no not all boys are this chatty this early! Mine talks maybe a third of Dylan and he is about 6mo older. They’re all unique. On the other hand, I get to listen to “Beue” (blue) and “Ehmo” (Elmo) and “No” all day long.

Linda, that was hysterical! Thank you for sharing.

Oh he is so cute. And he sounds so exhausting. :)

Man, he’s gotten so BIG. Although I’m still wondering when you’re just going to admit that you had JB’s brother’s child like you are living some Northwestern soap opera.

Sara

So cute. I have been dying for the day my little Pie starts talking, but perhaps it can wait a little longer…it made me laugh out loud that he tells himself good boy.

Jessica

I have to say, I laughed out loud reading this on the bus this morning. I cannot imagine such a little guy with so much energy and things to talk about. The “good boy Dylan” made me “aww” though. So cute.
