Spring Fling

When you are a kid the world is so big and fascinating.  I enjoy seeing the world through the eyes of my kids when I take the time to pay attention.

When Morgan was little she was so fascinated by the wind.  She just loved it.  She would hold her breath and smile, she was only a few months old when the fascination began.  The girls are both currently fascinated by school buses.  They love to see them , they love to watch the kids get out, they count them on the road.  Morgan can even tell the difference between them, they all look big and yellow to me but she notices details of the buses and will tell me how they differ.  We got an air-popper popcorn machine for Christmas and the first time the girls saw the popcorn pop they squealed with excitement and their faces lit up.

Baby Talk

I love baby babble.  It is so sweet when your little one, fully engages you with their babbling noises.  We as parents respond with genuine enthusiasm and excitement.  Eventually that babble turns into words and those words still are often only interpreted by those who know them best.  Today’s post is about just that, words that only parents would understand.

Morgan had a list of words that only made sense to a few of us.  There are a number of words that she incorrectly ended with “y or ie”; (for example, blankie or bathy).  I think I am to blame.  Surely I must have tried to make cute baby talk by adding those endings, and she copied me – why I did this I’ll never know.  I guess you can equate it to adults that look at a baby and say “goo goo ga gee”; definitely not cute.  Who agrees?
