A whole new world!

Lately, riding in the car, going to the store, or even just hanging out around the house, Camilla and I have been accompanied by an eager new conversationalist. Camilla might be in the middle of telling me something she deems important. It doesn't matter. She will undoubtedly be interrupted by an insistent,
"Mommy! Mommy! Mommy! Mommy!"
"Yes, Adrian?"
And his "yeah" is the most adorable, drawn-out, mouth-open, wide-eyed "yeah" I've ever heard. Really, I didn't know "yeah" could be so cute. The running commentary doesn't stop there, though. It continues, pretty much all day, no matter what we're doing.

"Mommy! Daw-Dee!"
His "noooo" is also priceless, with a rising inflection, as though he's thinking, "Come on, Mom! You got this. I obviously said Doggie, not Daddy!"

And so it goes on . . .
"Mommy! Ball!"
"Mommy! Fishie!"
"Mommy! Doo!"
"Your shoe fell off?"

And though my ears get tired at times, I have to smile because I want him to talk. I want them both to talk, and I love watching their minds take off. It really is a lot of fun. I am so blessed.  
"Smile, Adrian!"


  1. Love it! It's like you spend so much time anxiously awaiting those first words and then once they start you can't stop 'em!
