Until now, she has not used any three word phrases. I was stunned. A year ago at 4 months on January 7 she said her first word "milk". I knew then I had a smart child on my hands. Not only is milk a hard word for a baby to say, it is not a common word for a baby so young to understand. Kids don't usually talk that early. Three word phrases in context, how could this be? Whatever am I going to do with a kid speaking in three word phrases at 16 months? I guess I will have to stay one step ahead of her and challenge her. Apparently, she is smarter than I realize.
It was so cute the way she looked at me and said, " I BE GOOD!" that I just had to stop myself for a second and give her a big hug and kiss. I will never forget her first word a year ago or the look on her face when she told me she would be good. Of course, it is not hard to figure out what happened next, I took her out of her bed and said, "I understand you Sophia. You will be good for mommy so I will let you stay up a little longer. Please do not destroy the house and I will turn on Babies for you meaning the DVD "Baby Signing Time", her very favorite DVD. She was so excited that "Babies" was coming on the TV that she nearly jumped out of my arms with delight. She kept her promise, she was good and didn't undue anything else that I cleaned up this evening. Her daddy put her to bed at 7pm which is way early, but that is okay. I better hit the sack before I stay up all night and can't function in the morning. I know Sophia will be up bright and early since she went to bed at 7pm. Good Night!
