She DOES Speak English!

So when people talk about Monkey, we are often at a loss about how to describe her except to say she is cute. Even her big sis will say "she's so cute!".

And chatty. Monkey started "talking" quite a while ago. Especially on the phone. "Talk too!" she'll say until you let her say Hi, and all kinds of other things no one really knows. Very animated and expressive but besides "Mommy", "Daddy" and "no" it made no sense. Over the past couple of months she has started saying more than the basics in English.

For a long time now we've been waking up to "Mommy, are you Mommy?" Daddy, Daddy? Are you?"

She says "hi" to all the people in the grocery store and calls every lady with grey hair Nanny or Gramma (even though neither her Nanny or Gramma have grey hair)

She now says "Bye Bye, See-ya" to everyone, even the dogs, at her babysitter's.

If someone has something she wants, usually food, she says "I too!" or "Some! Some! Some!", holding her hand out and opening and closing it. Then, when she thinks you're getting it for her she does a little dance and claps her hands saying "yay!"

If Miss J starts playing with her and she's not in the mood she says "no Miss J, no!"

She says "Peese" and "Nank You" at the right times (sometimes!)

And my personal favourite..... When I go get her in her crib she'll give me a smile and say "Mo-ning!" What better way to start your day?
