J.T.: (taking one of her toys) Let me see it.
Nene: (bursting into tears) My this! My this!
While Nene will often repeat words, it's not always when we would like it. For example, on J.T.'s birthday:
Me: Happy birthday, J.T.! Nene, say 'happy birthday'!
Me: Come on, Nene. It's your brother's birthday. Say, 'happy birthday'!
Me: Can you do it? Can you say, 'happy birthday'?
Nene: (still smiling, and with perfect pronunciation) No!
Scary to think Nene's old enough that I can start posting things she says. Even more scary to think that someday soon, I'll be hearing actual conversations between these two.
