Obviously, Addilyn cannot carry on a conversation yet. At least in the way that we think of an adult conversation. But, when I can get her to stay in one place for longer than a minute, sometimes we have our own kind of conversation.
Today, we watched "dada" drive away for work while standing on the couch, looking out our living room window. We have a pleasant conversation (Addi style) about what we can see through the openings of the blinds passed the dirt stained glass. She especially likes pointing out the birds that tend to land in the flower covered bushes near our walkway(Pop pop would be proud). She points and exclaims, "bu, bu." She uses that same word to describe a small bug that lands softly on the outside window. The mail man came just then and after getting over her fear of a stranger approaching our home, she says "may may."
As I'm talking to her and listening to her sweet voice, I realize just how quickly she is growing up. Soon enough, she will be creating sentences to describe what she is seeing with those big brown, toddler eyes. I know this has been said before, but it is truly amazing being able to experience the world through a toddler's eyes. The way her mind processes what she sees, hears, tastes, and touches (she hasn't done much smelling yet) is wonderful to observe as her mom.
Addilyn ended our little discussion by putting her hands up as if to ask a question and says, "Bee?" Bee is her word for Beans, our little dog. She then slid herself off the couch and went looking for "Bee."
