The creative and sweet Valerie over at Living Lighter in Atlanta (check out her great blog!) tagged me in a fun tag in which the blogger reposts or pastes their first blog post. Thanks for thinking of Welcome to the Nursery, Valerie!
Well, my first post was very short…. Originally this blog was a place to put my short thoughts that popped into my head while I was nursing or changing baby #1. Perhaps these short posts were better suited for (the dreaded) Twitter.
This blog has grown, as have the length of its posts. I now expand on my thoughts a bit while still trying to be succinct and witty. Well, here is post #1 from August 28, 2014!
“Forget baby babble – I’m pretty sure that’s Parseltongue my little girl is speaking.”
Very verbose, eh? But so true! At that point, Toddler wasn’t talking yet (she was 11m) except for “mama” and “dada” etc. But she sure made a lot of snake-like “sssss” sounds! I think she was really trying hard to form words in her mouth, so much so that she was slowly (ssssslowly) forming each individual sound at a time. She really gave Harry a run for his money (start at 1:30).
Well, now Baby occasionally makes sounds like Parseltongue, but on the whole she’s a much better speaker than Toddler was at her age. She even says, “Hi dad-EE!”
She also says “daydel-daydel-daydel-daydel” a lot, and “yah yah yah yah!” I swear she’s just trying to imitate her older sister. And why wouldn’t she?
I’m enjoying discovering what talking sounds Baby is making while being nostalgic about what Toddler said. Sweet memories indeed!
Do you remember your first blog post? (Was it as embarrassing as mine? Haha….). I tag anyone to repost theirs! And do you remember what your kids first sounded like as babies?
