"No" Doesn't Mean "Climb on the End Table"
Do you ever notice how some babies sound like they are speaking a different language? My niece Nia always sounds like she is speaking Chinese (which is why I call her Ling Ling). One of my friends said her son always sounded like he was speaking Spanish because he always put a "la" in front of everything. I haven't decided what language I think Addie is speaking yet because she pretty much just screams in different pitches. But I am sure she is wondering what language I am speaking because it certainly isn't one she understands yet. I know that a lamp is WAY more fun than the 50 different toys spread out all over my living room...but I wish I could figure out a way to communicate to her that "no" doesn't mean "climb on the end table again". I know she at least understands a few things that I say though because when I call her name, she turns around and smiles at me. Little stinker!!
