Overnight conversationalist

Ok, last week my daughter knew a whole lot of words and a handful of phrases. This week she is having entire conversations. Is that normal? It's like she woke up and thought "I think I'm going to put these words together all the time and see how that goes". Of course there are many times where she makes zero sense. Does that stop her? Uh, no. While this little person she is becoming is breaking my heart, I have to admit that I am rather looking forward to her talking to me more. The teeny tiny baby days are long gone and yet she is still my baby.

In the midst of all this talking baby Burrow #2 is trying really hard to introduce him or her self to the world. In fact I think this baby is trying to break free. I sometimes pull my shirt up and show Lila my belly when the baby is moving and tell her that mommy is going to have a baby. She promptly grabs my shirt and pulls it back down and giggles. Not sure what that means! That being said, Lila has also become much more aware of her baby dolls and the effort it takes to take care of them. She had one baby doll in a high chair in her play kitchen and I overheard her say repeatedly "it's coming, it's coming" as she was getting the baby's "food" ready. I am taking this to mean she will be a huge help when the day comes!

Just to show that my little girl is still very much a little girl (even though it seems she is growing up TOO FAST) here's a reminder...


  1. OMG that is the cutest picture!! The next time I get to take her pictures, please bring Seth's boots along!!!

  2. I think you need to strike balance between mindset and methodology when it comes to being a great conversationalist. Here’s an article with some tips on the subject. Let me know what you think of it.
