We can’t shut her up

The silence doesn’t last long in this house.  Two six-year-olds and their Daddy can cause some serious noise.  So it’s no surprise that GirlyGirl has taken an interest competing for attention.  It started out with some random shrieks and lots of babbling but in the past couple of weeks she’s begun to utter some words.

Now there is some debate within the household of what her first word was.  I claim it was DaDa and she has uttered it while approximating the sign for Daddy.  But she has only said it, admittedly, a few times and doesn’t say it to me every time she sees me.

The kitties, on the other hand, she will talk every single time.  Whenever she sees the quiet Nutmeg or the bold Socks, she gets excited and will say in a loud whisper, “Kit-teh.”  It probably doesn’t hurt that whenever she says this we bring her over to pet the kitty.

The other word she is beginning to say is “done.” She will announce it while nursing, mostly.  But I’m sure we’ll be hearing that word more and more.

As for kitty chasing?  Well, kitty loving is well documented on this blog.  But, I do believe, Swee’Pea has a run for her money.

  4. This is funny. I have a five month old now that won’t shut up. All day long AND all night long I hear “babble, babble, babble.” I was taking both kids to daycare the other morning and Garrett was babbling and Justin (my five year old) said, “Daddy – I wish Garrett would shut up.” Normally, I would have to him that that was not appropriate. But I was so tired and I was coming down with a cold and all I could muster was, “I wish he would shut up too, buddy.” I felt so horrible after saying it…but man, Garrett is LOUD!! Good blog site. Thanks for letting me vent. http://www.genxdaddy.com
