Out of the mouths of babes....

    Skylar is getting bigger everyday and I am always amazed at how quickly she learns new skills! She is very vocal, just not in the way I had necessarily expected her to be. By this I mean she doesn't necessarily use words in the English language as much as she babbles and screams at the top of her lungs. Lately though she has begun using  her words more and. more. Andrew and I love how she makes animal sounds. You can ask her what a froggy says and she says "ibbit,ibbit" A duck says "quackquack", a cat says "meyaw", a sheep says"baaaa" and so forth. She also does this totally cute thing where if you ask her "what does Grandpa (or Grandma, or daddy, or mama) say?" she points her finger and says "No,no,no,no".  I know, its freakin' adorable!!
     SO we are in the van the other day and Sky is getting restless and fussy so we are singing songs and going through our animal sounds. She is so on top of her game, doing every animal sound correctly, when I say.... "What does Mommy say?" and my sweet little daughter, without a seconds hesitation,  replied "moooo" and then snorted like a pig!! Andrew of course laughs hysterically which makes Skylar keep snorting over and over again and saying "Mooooooo".

I'm thinking its time to go on a diet.

 (Andrew by the way hasn't stopped laughing and loves to recant the story to me lest I forget!)

  1. That is so funny! Reminds me of when Benjamin had to get changed with me at White Water and he shouted at the top of his voice "Mommy your boobies are so big and so beautiful!"
