Ahh-Buh!

That's how Sebastian says his brother's name. He started saying it last week. Cutest. thing. ever. The first time my jaw hit the ground (our boy still doesn't talk very much...), and he's saying it all the time now. Sebastian loves holding his brother. He loves having Oliver on his lap. Generally, our little mime will just sit down, pat his lap, and reach toward Oliver to tell us he wants to hold him. But in my quest to get him actually verbalize things, I was pushing him to actually say Oliver's name.

And then he did. I kept asking him what he wanted, and finally he just looked at me like I was crazy, and the most irritating thing in the world, and said "Ahh-vuh!" That has since morphed into "Ahh-buh," which is a bit easier to say, but still, he gets his point across. The other morning he came up to the bedroom where I was with Oliver, who was still sleeping in our bed. I was in the bathroom getting dressed and stuff. Sebastian poked his head in, and started signing "where" and saying "Ahh-buh?" "Ahh-buh?" I didn't know what he was asking at first. He kept pointing downstairs, and I was stumped.

Then he got up on his tiptoes and looked into the pack-and-play that we're using as a changing table in our room while Oliver is still sleeping with us. Then he pointed to the changing table, signed "where," shook his head, and said "Ahh-buh" in a sad voice. I finally got that he was saying Oliver! Duh! I told him that Oliver was still sleeping in our bed, and his face immediately lit up. He signed "sleeping" and started babbling in a whisper, all while running over to the bed to see his brother.

Sebastian still doesn't say "HI" as adorably to anyone else. He has started saying it to us and sometimes to Mummo and Pappa, but he started with Oliver. He doesn't say many words perfectly. In fact, that is probably the only one. Aiti and Daddy are pretty close most of the time. But "hi" is wonderful every time. It is totally normal-sounding and perfect. And he reserves that perfection for his favorite plaything, his future best friend, his little brother. I can't wait to see them grow up together.

  2. Getting ex boyfriend back after a breakup,I’m extremely happy that will are living together again. Am Maria 21yr from England, my boyfriend of a 4yr just broke up with me and am 30 weeks pregnant.I have cried my self to sleep most of the nights and don’t seem to concentrate during lectures sometimes I stay awake almost all night thinking about him and start to cry all over again.Because of this I end up not having energy for my next day’s classes ,my attendance has dropped and am always in uni and on time.Generally he is a very nice guy ,he ended it because he said we were arguing a lot and not getting along.He is right we’ve been arguing during the pregnancy a lot .After the break up I kept ringing him and telling him I will change.I am in love with this guy and he is the best guy I have ever been with.I’m still hurt and in disbelief when he said he didn’t have any romantic feelings towards me anymore that hurt me faster than a lethal syringe.He texts me now and then mainly to check up on how am doing with the pregnancy,he is supportive with it but it’s not fair on me, him texting me as I just want to grieve the pain and not have any stress due to the pregnancy.i was really upset and i needed help, so i searched for help online and I came across a website that suggested that Dr Unity can help solve marital problems, restore broken relationships and so on. So, I felt I should give him a try. I contacted him and he told me what to do and i did it then he did a spell for me. 28 hours later, my bf came to me and apologized for the wrongs he did and promise never to do it again. Ever since then, everything has returned back to normal. I and my bf are living together happily again.. All thanks to Dr Unity.

  3. Good day,,,,
    Read my testimony!!! Getting ex back after a breakup. Am Clara Bartlett 30 from UK, my boyfriend of a 2year just broke up with me and am 28 weeks pregnant. I have cried my self to sleep most of the nights and don’t seem to concentrate during lectures sometimes I stay awake almost all night thinking about him and start to cry all over again. Because of this I end up not having energy for my next day’s classes, my attendance has dropped and am always in uni and on time. Generally he is a very nice guy, he ended it because he said we were arguing a lot and not getting along. He is right we’ve been arguing during the pregnancy a lot. After the break up I kept ringing him and telling him I will change. I am in love with this guy and he is the best guy I have ever been with. I’m still hurt and in disbelief when he said he didn’t have any romantic feelings towards me anymore that hurt me faster than a lethal syringe. He texts me now and then mainly to check up on how am doing with the pregnancy, he is supportive with it but it’s not fair on me, him texting me as I just want to grieve the pain and not have any stress due to the pregnancy. i was really upset and i needed help, so i searched for help online and I came across a website that suggested that Dr Ahmed can help solve marital problems, restore broken relationships and so on. So I felt I should give him a try. I contacted him and he told me what to do and i did it then he did a spell for me. 22 hours later, my boyfriend came to me and apologized for the wrongs he did and promise never to do it again. Ever since then, everything has returned back to normal. I and my boyfriend are living together happily again..
