Beckett started talking when she was 18-months old and hasn’t stopped since.  She blabs with the best of them and we jokingly refer to her as the narrator of her life/day/story.  You want to know what she’s doing – just close your eyes and listen.  For quite a while now she has been talking in full sentences and sounds like a little adult most of the time.  But, then there are the Beckett-isms – the constant reminders that she’s still a little one and oh-so-cute.

Dandelions are “windy lions”

Minutes are “mill-nets”

Bathrobes are “robs”

And my new favorite…

Cows give us both milk and “mis-steaks”.
