Tallulah spoke her first full sentence several weeks before Christmas: “I fall down.”
She didn’t make a regular habit of stringing together a bunch of words after that, though, only gracing us with those complete thoughts here and there – when we would least expect them.
Fast forward to last week, when I was cleaning the kitchen while she finished her lunch. I looked over and noticed she had made a huge mess with her food and I said something like, “Who spilled all that stuff on your tray?”
I was, of course, being facetious.
She, on the other hand, was completely stone-faced serious when she looked me in the eye and said, “Beans did it.”
Beans was at school and had been at school for hours. Poor Beans. He’s in for a lot more of that, I’m pretty sure.
