Say What?


Genevieve is finally hitting the long-anticipated "language explosion." You know, when babies suddenly spout off with several new words every day, after months of minimal speech acquisition? OK, so with Genevieve it's more of a gentle uptick than an explosion, but it's still pretty entertaining. Her latest two-syllable words: waffle, Barney, ballet. The basics, you know.

Personally, I'm getting tired of Genevieve's words for "dog," "owl," and "ouch" all being the same sound. That's starting to wear on EVERYONE, people.

I fully endorse the language firecracker, but I'll note for the blogosphere that "dog," "owl," and "ouch" are easily distinguished: she makes a growly face when saying the first, turns her head for the second, and touches her head for the third.

What a cutie! Remember this old saying "You spend the first two years of their life teaching them to walk and talk, and you spend the next 16 years telling them to sit down and shut up."

That's pretty funny and so true!

Boy, that saying is right on, isn't it? I'll know soon enough, I'm sure.

You will find baby cribs made from a variety of materials, in different shapes and styles. When you begin looking at baby cribs, make sure that the slats are set close together to prevent your child's arms or legs being caught in them. Look for a crib that has a heavy gauge steel frame with bolted rails to securely hold the baby crib mattress and box support. Baby cribs that offer four way, double safety locks are the best, because they prevent the side of the crib from dropping unexpectedly, which can cause injury to your child. You will see many cribs, changing and activity tables constructed with decorative posts, cutout designs or projections that may look pretty, but are not safe for your child.
