Like Mother, Like Daughter

My daughter was incredibly verbal when she was little. So verbal, in fact, that I never would have believed it if I hadn't witnessed it myself.

When she was around a year and a half, I said to her, "Jordan instead of just crying in your crib, can you kind of yell out and tell me what's wrong so I know if I need to come in. Like Mommy, I dropped my pac!"

Later that night, I was in a deep sleep and I heard, "Mommy, I need more milk."

I got up and made her a bottle. Just as I was falling back to sleep, I heard, "Mommy, my milk leaked." Yup, she really said leaked.

I got up and sure enough, I hadn't screwed the lid on properly. I had to change her pajamas and her sheets and get her a new bottle.

I was so tired. (Keep in mind I also had a three month old!)

I finally get back into bed and drift off and I hear, "Mommy, I got in a bad mood!"

Ha! Why couldn't she have taken after her father?

*laughing self silly* Oh, how I wish I could call out and get sympathy when I got a bad mood. That's a wonderful story. And.....I kind of see another book in it. You've got so much material, I'm just saying...

That's SO cute! I love that age...where they're just starting to talk well. They say the cutest things.

That is awesome! And, wow ... she WAS a verbal one - - impressive!

So cute! And amazing!

I'm having the opposite problem. Berlin will almost always use one word to tell me something or ask for something if she can get away with it. We keep emphasizing sentences but there are only a few she likes to say.

Ha!

Heh. I get stuff like that too. The other day, it was, "Mommy, I'm cranky. I go to my room until I feel better."

And I thought, hey, I can retire now. Until this morning when they got a hold of the vitamin bottle. Le sigh.
