Holy Vocabulary, Batman

It's not exactly a newsflash that my kid talks. Kind of a lot. The number of people who are even a little bit surprised about this: 0. You see, I was a talker - and totally that kid who was reading very well before my first day of kindergarten. If Briony had come out as quiet as Geoff, I would not have had a clue what to do with her (I suck at staring contests).

It was so much fun to see how her vocabulary grew and blossomed since she first uttered the word 'tickle' almost a year ago. But honestly, we've heard very few NEW words in the last few months. Right at the age where NORMAL children are starting to talk, she's been talking - but not really acquiring a lot of NEW vocabulary. Instead, she learned to walk and just kind of took a break from language acquisition. A little backwards, maybe, but it worked.


The point is that in the last week, she's started acquiring vocabulary again, at a kind of astonishing rate. It's been hilarious. It's also been very cool to see how those words - old and new - are starting to wind their way into bigger and more complicated sentences. It's kind of hard not to laugh at her these days.
