Dear Olive,
I was lucky enough to have Monday off and as I was feeding you before your morning nap, I picked up one of your teddies and told him about the fun morning we'd had. How we'd caught the bus, where we went, who we met, what we had for lunch. As I walked out of the room I heard you saying this to your cat teddy ... "Hi Cat. Bus. Two bus! Library. Amelia, Clover. Books! Cafe. Sosso roll!" The entire morning, word for word, in nouns. You're going to kill me with your cuteness one of these days, I tell you. 
I took this photo at 6.30 this morning. Don't let that innocent fact fool you. It was taken just before you tore my office to shreds.

Aw so cute! My nephew is just starting to put some words together -- so exciting for him to communicate with language as we can see he is just bursting to tell us everything!

Cutie pie! It must be amazing to watch her learn to communicate vocally...
my sister is 21 and she still speaks like this, only she favours adjectives. If she's hot she simply blurts "Hot". If she's hungry, it's just "Hungry"... "Bored" "Fat" "Tired" and so on... it's a very efficient way of communicating! xx

Hey Kel, I haven't read Buddhism for Mothers... but it sounds like something I'd be interested in reading - in fact I think I may have heard this book recommended somewhere else before too.... must be a goodie xx
