Julia has been talking up a storm the last couple of months. Suddenly my daughter speaks in sentences. And pretty clear ones, at that. Also, she's funny. Here's a sampling:
-After someone started singing about the Monkeys Jumping on the Bed, Julia said, "I know that song. Two little monkeys, jumping on the bed. Mama said, No no, sit."
-"Julia, what color of hair does Mama have?" "Red." "And what color of hair does Daddy have?" "Marshmallow!"
-(Playing with a Happy Meal toy) "Turn it back on, it's not working!"
-When it's time to change a diaper/get shoes on/take a bath: "Ok, here we go. Let's see. . . "
-If you have a drink with a straw, beware: she will ask you for "sips" until the drink is all gone.
-The kid is obsessed with being safe. We went to the OB today, and she kept telling me, "Julia safe. Julia safe."
-We've discovered a new fear: feathers. And threads that look like feathers. We practically had a meltdown in the car yesterday because she found a loose thread on her car seat, which she declared to be a feather. We had to have a chat about how feathers come from birds, and birds are not scary, so neither are feathers. It seemed to calm her down, but I'm not sure she's convinced.
