Talking Up a Storm Here...

Gigi's vocabulary and syntax is booming these days. I swear she's learning new words and phrases every day. Her newest phrases are actually her first sentences: "I'll get it!" "I fixed it!" and "Throw it [the ball]!" are just a few. I still think she doesn't understand all the personal pronouns like I, me and you, but it's so cute to hear her saying them.

I guess it's about time to start recording her funny Gigi-isms as she develops and learns more and more. So here are a couple to start things off.

The other day we went for a walk on a nearby trail. A runner came up behind us and passed by us, wearing just running shorts, and no shirt (it was guy, BTW). Gigi points and says matter-of-factly, "Naked!"

Let me preface this next story by the fact that lately Gigi has learned to stack blocks and knock them over saying, "Timber!" and also we play "Timber" when she's up on my bed and she falls over. So today we were driving home from breakfast with some friends and there was a truck in front of us, packed and stacked like the Beverly Hillbillies. It took me a second to figure out what she was saying, but sure enough, Gigi was looking at the truck and saying "Timber!" I said, "No, baby, that furniture is going to stay stacked, we don't want it to go timber."

Pretty clever, this girl.
