I’ve been so caught up in watching Pippa’s language development that Romilly’s advancing speech has really caught me off guard. I lost count of her words somewhere around 80, and I would guess she’s passed the 100 mark by now. Having mastered individual words, she seems to want to go straight to “grown-up” talk now. Always fascinated by her Bible story books, Romilly has started ‘reading’ her Bible stories like this: “A-bah-dah-bah-dah-dah-bah… JESUS, bah-doo-bah-dah JESUS.” The inflection is priceless and so grown-up. Oh yeah, and she always reads her Bible upside down. Always. At least we know she’s getting the most important stuff!
