He Speaks!

So my prediction was wrong, he didn't go directly to full sentences, but there are some 50 cent words in the growing vocabulary.  Here's a sampling of choice words and phrases from the Nugget.  Keep in mind that there is still a heavy toddler accent, so translation is necessary for non-parental units.

-Zimbabwe:  singing along with The Alphabet of Nations

-Oh, I see:  reading along with The Little Mouse, the Red Ripe Strawberry, and the Big Hungry Bear

-Mama music:  a daily request to turn on the cd player

-Hi Doggie:  said repeatedly after any separation, like entering the house after an errand or coming downstairs after his nap

-Opposites:  the title of a Sandra Boynton book, one that he doesn't care for, so I'm surprised this is among the first discernable words.

His mystery word du jour is "ah-bizz-ya".  He says it over and over again, clearly and urgently, but we have not figured out its meaning yet.  It is not accompanied by any signing.  Any guesses?!
