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?
