talk about it more

a virtual baby book

When she was two, Fiona regularly said "Talk about it more!" to express her desire to know more about whatever we were discussing.

Preschool sagacity

I came home and was checking email while our leftover soup heated. Fiona was playing in some flour I had on the table for making pies. Nora was babbling contentedly, still in her carseat, in the front room. I could see her foot from the kitchen computer.

After one particularly exuberant whoop from Nora, Fiona said, "Oh! Nora's by herself! Somebody should go be with her!" I agreed wholeheartedly, finishing up my email. Fiona added, "Mom, that somebody should be YOU!"

She's right, of course, but I'm still laughing. She just now reminded, "Somebody needs to be with herrrrrrrrrrrr...." Guess I'd better go.

Voices in her head?

Today Fiona mentioned that she could hear her Grandpa's voice in her head. Jen asked what he was saying. She said he wasn't saying anything, she could just hear his voice. After further questioning later, it came out that he was humming in her head - therefore no words!

Usually when Grandma and Grandpa (actually "Toot-toot", which is a story that deserves its own blog entry) come up in conversation initiated by Fiona, it's quickly followed by the suggestion that we need to go and visit them. It's great that she loves them so much, and a bummer that we don't get to visit as often as she would like.

We were bemoaning to friends today the lack of time to document our second child as much as we did our first ... and of course, the first suffers from that too, now. They said that they fell into blogging about their daughter when then moved (a move on the order of 1000s of miles). Eureka! I thought. So here I am.

And here they are - Fiona (4 in a month) and Nora (5 months old):

The title of this blog comes from Fiona's request when we talk about something she finds interesting. "Talk about it more!"
