Libby learned the word "no" about a month ago. Surprisingly, it has not been the terrible, terrible thing parents have told me it would be. (So far!) It's actually just really cute. Probably because she always says it in a sing-song voice.

Just now, Libby was sitting in her backpack carrier in the living room. (Yep, just sitting in it. She loves this thing.) She started fussing and I thought she wanted to get out. I asked her "do you want down?" Her response: "Down? Noooo (sing-song)." It might not quite be a sentence, but she's combining words and it's adorable.

She does say no sometimes when we try to put her pajamas on at night, but it's really no worse than the flailing of arms and legs we usually get as a response. Instead, I feel almost proud that she is grown up enough to express herself. It's almost like she's a real person now. :)


  1. Isn't it funny that kids start talking and then we start to consider them "real" people. I told Kyle the same thing... Hailey is just getting so big, she's a person now!

  2. Abigail is saying no now too. Also in a sing song sort of voice. She can kind of say a sentence but "what is that?" sounds like "whuzthuu"? Oh and she calls all new people babies and all animals puppies. Ha
