Milestones the Baby Books Miss: Imaginary Words
That is, the first sounds the doting parents can pretend sound like real words. Yesterday morning, while D1 was supposed to be having breakfast, DOB came in. D1 looked him straight in the eye, grinned, and said, "Hi."
She's convinced she can talk as it is. (And Grandpa is convinced he can understand her.) She likes it best when she is supposed to be eating. I foresee a childhood of plates growing cold.
This does sort of remind me of the dueling baby boasting in the movie Bachelor Mother:
"Can he talk?"
"Well, this one can, can't he dear?"
"Indeed. Why last night, he said the first two lines from 'Gunga Din' quite distinctly."
