Smooth Talker

I'm not really up for blogging tonight, sadly.

However, as I so often do, I feel compelled to share something of my day, and thankfully I've got a video on hand from last night.

I've spent months and months fretting over the fact that Michael still has not begun to talk, only to realize recently that he's got a clear personality difference that's been apparent since birth. Abby was incredibly vocal from day one, and while I somehow failed to notice upon his arrival (probably because of all of his reflux issues) that Michael was not, I am definitely noticing now. Amelia has apparently inherited her sister's Gift of Gab, and has been a big "talker" for some time now. Michael, on the other hand, has always been much more quiet and introspective.

I'll be interested to see how quickly Mia starts forming words, herself. In the meantime, I've done my best to try to catch her chirping and cooing in action.

Unfortunately, she's never as verbose in front of a camera as she is away from one, so you'll have to be patient with the video, but hopefully this will give you an idea of what's in store (and how little control I apparently have when kissing her face and head, which was a bit of a surprise to me as I reviewed, but can you blame me?):

Happy watching, and a very good night to you all. Signing out, here, and hoping for some good sleep in exchange...
