Lucy Talk

My brother thinks Lucy talks like a gremlin. And well, she does.
And we finally caught it on video! So check out her cell phone conversation. She definitely speaks jibberish, but she has all the right voice inflections and even pauses for responses. Pretty funny:

When Lucy was 15 months old, her doctor wanted me to take her to a speech therapist because she wasn't speaking (words that we could understand, that is). But I thought that was extreme and decided to wait till she was 2. Well, she's 1 month shy of 2, and for the past few months she's really started to talk! (aside from the Gremlin speak) and seems to mimic words we say to her. It's real cute. She can count up to 9, knows many letters of the alphabet, folds her arms and says amen, can say "einstein!", and today finally said the name of her cute friend, "Chloe!"
She's still behind her peers in the speech category, but I think she'll catch up. And I have to attest that much of her speech has come from watching Sesame Street. When we're out running errands, she'll point out letters that I had no idea she knew. And then I'll see those letters on Sesame Street and she'll get all excited about them. So there you go! Sesame Street works!
Of course it's still funny to hear the gremlin talk too.

I love that phone call. My Ava jibber jabbers on the phone in a very similar way. For some reason it didn't occur to me to get it on tape. Ava does a fake laugh and holds her mouth. I must do it when I am on the phone too. She'll also spit out a "Noway" and then back to jabber jabber.

She could be cuter, but I'm not sure how. I love her cute little voice, even if I can't understand a thing. Hey -- Alex turned two in October, and I'm still only getting about 50%!

I just have to post again in regards to your little gremlin! My girls can not get enough of this little video. Jillian signs 'more' over and over and Jacqueline keeps saying, "just one more time mom". I think we wached it 12 times this morning!! They laugh and laugh each time like it is the first! They sure love watching this of their cousin Lucy. So cute!!!

That's so great! Some of Lucy's little friends here keep asking their mom's to watch it "again! again!". So funny. I'm glad she's entertaining!

Totally. I think it sounds like she's ordering take-out from a Vietnamese restaurant.
