Twas Brillig and the Slithy Toves...

We have a new development on the speech front- Nolan has finally developed "jargon!" This is a variegated form of babbling which resembles the intonation and inflection of adult speech. Since we never had this with Matt (he said almost nothing until he hit 2 1/2), it is really neat to watch. Last night Nolan came up to me and informed me, "Ba! Dabawa! Inda!"

I'm fairly sure he was "tattling" on his brother.

This is cool.

LOL! That *is* cool! I would have a hard time keeping a straight face if Ethan said that to me though ;-)

Maybe it's a private language ;-)

Beautiful! I wonder if Lewis Carroll was inspired by toddler-speak?
