What use to sound like a foreign language is actually starting to sound more like English. Of course when your “binky” is in your mouth it regresses back to someone with Novocaine filled cheeks trying to talk. For example last weekend you were all nestled in your spot on the couch watching Imagination Movers on Disney while I was checking email in the other room. I remember looking away from the computer to sneeze and then I hear “slesscchh you” (of course your binky was in your mouth). I paused for a second to confirm what I thought I heard, smiled, and then said “thank you”. I immediately got up to peek around the corner to stare and soak up this precious moment to reflect on later in life… like when you sneak out of the house or when you tell your first lie to me.
Of course neither of those will EVER happen because angels cannot lie and your wings and harp will not fit through the window. I think the other funny thing about you right now is anytime I begin a sentence to you with “are you ready to … or do you want?” you immediately begin to shake your head no. Mostly because it is followed by something you don’t want to do like Nap, or bath, or go to bed. So I have started to have fun with it and end it with stuff like “for me to buy you a new car when you turn 16? Or “get married before you are 30? I now have proof on video that you said “NO” to BOTH of those questions to play back for you when you try and ask me about either when you are older.
