4.20.09

So I've got a sleepy baby today who is more than happy to let me catch up on emails, blogs, paying bills and watching birth shows (why do I still find these fascinating?). I'm taking advantage of my extra time and posting this video now, even though I've already posted 39589048 times today.

This is Lilly talking. My mom used to always do this slightly annoying thing with babies-- she'd say "A-geeee? A-goooo?" until they'd eventually start saying it back. Well, guess who does the same thing now?! And guess who LOVES it?! That would be me and my child, that chatterbox. Watch how focused she gets in the video. She watches my mouth and tries so hard to mimic what I'm doing. She did it at Trisha's last week (oo! there's a blog I never wrote!) and Trisha either humored me and pretended to agree that she really did it or stroked my ego and confirmed that she did.

What do you think?! We do this about 10 times a day and it kills me every time. It also kills me to hear her lying in her crib, frustrated that no one has come for her yet and finally she'll just spurt out "a GOO!"

Okay Katie, I can go on with my day now that I have heard her sweet little voice. She is trying so hard to figure out just how to make her mouth make that sound. You can see the little wheels turning. So precious.

That's TOTALLY it!! How awesome is that? I think I caught D doing the vowel/consonant thing but def. not repeating me.

Oh my goodness! She is so smart and I just wanna squeeze her and steal all her sugar!

I think you have a genius on your hands there! Sometimes in the mid morning when I'm feeding Kaity I will flip through channels and see these commercials for "teaching my baby to read" and they are like 9 months. Its crazy! She could be one of those baby's for sure!

Um, if you are going to be coming all that way to play, can you bring Lilly with you ;)

So, I watched this video while holding my 3 mo. DD and she quite enjoyed seeing/hearing Lilly talking. Very cute moment! =)
