She Is So Smart

Hope is learning fast. Some of the latest things she can say:

"just a mimmit"

"there it is"

"quit that"

"no no Tylah"

"see you later" among others that I can't remember. Amazingly, she not only says the words but uses them in the right context.

Two nights ago I came by the house for supper and was about to to back to work. I was concerned that Hope would get upset if she saw me leaving. ( she has really gotten attached to me since I have been staying with her during the day) I went to her bedroom door where Misty and the grandkids were all around her playing at the mirror making a ton of racket. I said very quietly to Misty, "I'm going to slip on out and get back to work." Immediately Hope said, "bye bye Daddy" and never missed a beat in her playing. She also was totally unconcerned about my departure.

All parents think that their baby is extra smart, maybe some parents that have Chinese children more so. I hate to admit it, no matter where she came from, but my little baobei. (Chinese for precious darling) is really, really smart. If you will excuse me now I must go and check on her, I think that she is on the brink of perfecting "cold fusion" in her bedroom laboratory. Wait, scratch that last comment, it's just an unbelievably stinky, poo poo diaper.
