I am now sick. Full blown, achy, sore throat, chills and coughing, sick. So my blog may be short tonight. Or I may run on the way I usually do, because when I sit very still and only move my fingers to type, it really isn't all that bad.
Sadie is adding new words to her vocabulary each week. We now have "hi" and "no" but until today she hadn't ventured beyond using single syllables. We went to Fedex Kinko's to print out my first novel (that's right I finally did it! Printing out seven copies, one to keep, three for contests and three for agents: added up to 2100 pages, which comes out to $181 of paper. Now this thing better win something or get published! Otherwise it's a huge waste of an entire weeks pay after taxes.). Paul already had Sadie out of the car and I was fishing around through my binder for my CD when I heard a high pitched voice say "hello." I looked up and saw an elderly woman looking in our direction with an odd expression on her face. I smiled and got out of the car.
"She just said hello!" Paul said the words as we made our way across the parking lot and I glanced over at Sadie to see her smiling happily. "That woman did?" I thought he meant that Sadie had said hello, but it just didn't seem possible. "No. Sadie said hello."
That's right! At six months old, Sadie's third word is "hello!"
Would I be too much of a mom if I said she's a genuis?!?!
