5/52 Dirty faces and not one word from the cheekiest baby around.

February 05, 2015

Piper spends a lot of time 'chatting' but she says no actual words.  Sometimes I find this a bit unsettling because I'm so vocal.  My love language is almost exclusively spoken or written communication.  I think out loud.  I sing out loud.  Basically, I'm as obnoxious as they come.  But I try to be friendly about it.

I married a man of few words, but the words he chooses to express are well thought out, and meaningful... He's a sniper, if you will.  I am more the machine gun type.  Our girl, although she is the most affectionate and loving human being I have encountered thus far, may take after her father in regards to speech.  She's not in a hurry to express whats on her mind.  For fear, perhaps, that it distract her from thinking more deeply and thoroughly about unpacking my clean laundry basket.

The other day, however, I was changing her diaper and somewhere between holding her down with my one arm (I wish there was a baby wrestling championship belt somewhere...) and pulling her pants back up I tried to distract her with a big smile and an overenthusiastic "Hey!".  She looked right back up at me and said it twice.  

She hasn't done it since, so clearly I'm either seeing a mirage of communication where none exists.  Either that, or she's messing with me.  Which could be entirely possible.  She's a clever little minx.

Just look at that face and try to tell me she wouldn't try and mess with my head.
