Baby Genius or I'm Learning a Third Language
When we first got off the airplane KC greeted us with a lot of baby gibberish of which I understood "Poppa" for Grandpa and "Gobby" for Grandma. I told my daughter, Tiffany this morning that it's amazing how much vocabulary KC had picked up in just one week.
Well...that's not true, of course. It's just that Art and I can now understand more of her language.
ma no is no more
daggie is daddy
mo kutiki pee is More cottage cheese please
bebi kawa hewa is I'm going to color here.
ba pee is Please turn on my sheep music so I can go to sleep.
choo choo is train
ninyo is noodles
baby serel eat is I'm going to eat cereal.
COOKIE is cookie
I'm now babysitting while Art is out with his work buddies and Tif and Ed are out shopping. KC is napping while I make the most of my highspeed connection. I expect she'll wake up in a few minutes. (The neighbor in the condo next to us is having carpeting installed.) There's no way I can do anything on the computer while she's awake because she loves to see her Flickr photos and will impatiently take control of the keys very effectively. So she is a genius after all!
