No more baby talk from us

MLO has proven she fully understands what you say to her, no matter how complicated you think it is.

Yesterday night she was carry a huge amount of things in her arms around the house. Every now and then she would drop one. She would try to pick it up and drop something else and so on. Eventually she would somehow get them all in her arms again and go on her marry way.

After watching her try this twice, when it happened a third time I told her "You can come back for it after you put everything else down." She stopped, looked at me and smiled. She promptly turned around, finished getting everything else to her room.

She then came running back, picked up the one stray item and ran it into her room.

She then came prancing out of her room (her chest pushed up and head held high) and I clapped for her.

She smiled huge and ran to me for a hug.

So, now I know that when she pretends not to understand me, she is doing just that - pretending.
