Bye bye

The Little Madam knows how to wave, but she usually doesn't quite get her timing right. By the time she responds to someone's farewell, they've already left the building and gone round the corner.

Today though, after visiting friends with an energetic and sociable 19-month-old, TLM not only waved at our hosts as we were leaving, she also said quite audibly, "Bye bye" - twice.

Those aren't her first words, but for some reason they're the ones that have made me go all squishy.

That is pretty cute. And I still say "bye-bye" to people, don't you?

Awe!
I really hope I have kids before I'm 80.

Very sweet. It is great when they communicate with other people. It just means she is growing up. Can you believe that as moms we help them grow up. We are important people.

Lucy always says bye bye to Daddy on the phone about 2 seconds after he calls. Not a convoluted converastionalist our 20-month old :)

neil: no, we sophisticates prefer to say "Ciao" ;-)

nigel: at least you've got heaps of time before you turn 80 :-)

angela: we are, aren't we? That's what so damned frightening!

mad muthas: I'm sure it'll be just as cute when she learns her first swear word...

elizaf: now there's a kid who isn't going to hog your phone.

Congrats. Now we get to see when she starts saying it at all the wrong times and moments. At least that's what our two did ;-)

michael c: yeah, she now says it before she goes to bed, when she should be saying "night, night".
