Since birth, Nessie has always been a talker. Now, at 18 months, she is rattling off sentences, counting to 5 in Spanish, and saying just about anything - she is a real parrot and likes to spend her time repeating words, absolutely opposite from how Lulu was. When our muffins came out of the oven this morning, she saw them and said "cupcakes". While desperate on taxi rides home from JFK, we look at a word flashcard app on my iphone, and she repeats all the words. She loves to perform "Happy Birthday to Lulu" -- you just have to applaud for her when she's done singing.
