Bye bye!

Guess who is saying her first word?

And just to be sure she's not outdone by her younger sister, Caroline is showing off her speaking skills too.

In other Caroline-related news, I have a few Caroline-isms to share:

We were in the car on the way to school the other day and out of the blue Caroline said, "Hey Mama, know what? I'm not afraid of Armadillo's" Hmm. Okay.

There are a couple of words that Caroline uses that are really not the proper way to use them, but they are endearing because they are so "her." I know she'll grow out of them soon, and I probably should correct her speech, but I can't bring myself to just yet.

Instead of saying "so", Caroline says "for". Where the correct thing to say would be, "I need you to go get dressed so we can leave on time", Caroline would say, "I need you to go get dressed for we can leave on time."

And instead of saying "really", Caroline says "very." Where the correct thing to say would be, "I really want that Barbie", Caroline would say, "I very want that Barbie."

As we're walking down the road of kindergarten applications, I am sure it would be wise to help her make those words corrections, but there is something really endearing about the little four-year-old speak that makes me smile when she talks.
