Eloquent Felicity

Felicity's language development always seems to lunge forward in big strides. Yesterday was one of those days where practically every sound she uttered was a word, and lots of words were strung together as phrases or sentances.

For example, when she woke after an early morning nap, I offered to take her to the potty. She responded, "I don't want the pot." She also said Kwamai's name clearly for the first time yesterday, finally adding on the beginning K/Q sound.

It is so neat to have a more conversational relationship develop with her, and among all of us as a family. Last night during bath time we all had a good laugh over her insisting we call that slippery white bar "pope" (as she can't quite get out the "s" sound).

That's so funny about calling the soap, "pope!"

She's got the idea about both!
