I'm not sure that's actually a word, but it is fitting for baby girl these days. She's talking up a storm!! Ok, most of it is "Dikah, dikah, dikah, dikah" (think of Dr. Evil doing the macarena and you've got the correct inflection) or "Budtha, budtha, budtha, budtha" or some other completely random things that sound like they should be words, but they're just not quite there.

However, the other night, when she wanted something, she just came out and said, clear as day, "Please!" and then right after that, she clearly said our nanny's name, and we were expecting her to just turn to us and start speaking in full sentences! It was so strange!

For about a week or so, if we ask her where something is, she'll shrug her shoulders, turn her hands up, and walk around like she's looking for something. Last night, she started adding the word(s), "I-oh-know" to this behavior. Pretty cool - she's really becoming a little person!!

People always say that you're so excited when your child first starts talking and then later, you can't shut them up. At 2.5, baby boy hasn't quite hit the stage where we want to shut him up. In fact, we love to hear him talk about things because we just never know what he's going to say.

Last night, he was telling me that he played on some bicycles at his friend's house and then that morphed into some kind of description of sleeping and waking up over and over. I have no idea what it was supposed to mean, but I'm sure it made perfect sense to him.

Woops, time to get back to work!

The boy's there. You can frequently here us begging- please! Just 5 minutes of quiet!

But it is still an adventure to hear where his mind takes him. And the girl has become the little parrot- but parroting our least favorite phrases like- "whatever" said in the best teenage snot inflection.
