Little Egypt

She walks, she talks, she crawls on her belly like a reptile! *

Well, that’s not a very flattering description of my daughter, and not particularly accurate either, since she doesn’t really walk yet. But this past week she both started crawling and talking. She’d been big with the "AAAAH!" previously, but she never really had any consonants. Now she can say, "Da da da da da da da."

It’s not a big vocabulary, but it’s still exciting.

* For those who don’t understand the reference, the Coasters recorded a song called "Little Egypt" that included this line.
