Ready, Set, Go!!
Perhaps the best thing of the weekend is Naomi's new little phrase. I'm not sure where she picked it up (Sesame Street, maybe), but when Mark was changing her last night, he ended with, "Ready?" She responded, "Set. Go!" And now she's done it all morning. I've tried to get video of it, but she won't sit still long enough. I can vouch for how unbelievably cute it is.
It's a small reminder of how quickly they pick up the words we say. It's a gentle reminder to respond to them with patient and loving words and to teach them to do the same. It's a huge reminder that this is going so fast and that my two little babies are getting bigger.
I'm not sure I'm ready for that.
