words and actions
Baby Julia Ellen is constantly making us giggle with delight (except when she wakes screaming in the middle of the night, 3 times last night). She is at that adorable stage in speech development of repeating sounds so when we ask, "Say cow," she will say the animal's name and then throw her head back and "moooo" with all her might. When we ask, "Do you like Daddy?" she will vigorously nod her head like a puppet on a string. Maybe it is because I have all these helpers to make breakfast, or because I'm not pregnant with another child, but finally with baby #6 I can really enjoy these moments of babyspeak with no desire to hurry her along.
