Subject + Verb + Object = Sentence

The Sprout said her first independent sentence on Wednesday. At breakfast, with a little wind-up chick in one hand and a cup of milk in the other, she proclaimed: "Poussin drink milk." Poussin, I'm sure you guessed, is "chick" in French. So, while she is mixing her languages and hasn't quite grasped the conjugation thing, she is firmly on the path to figuring out how to get her way more efficiently. :P

Some things don't need full sentences, like when she says "chapeau" and puts her napkin on her head.

Conversations may not be around the corner, but they are getting closer all the time. :D

Got milk?
How does she grow so quickly??

I'm almost afraid to guess because, if I figure it out, will I be tempted to stop it so she will remain my wee one for a while longer? :P

I think I need to dig out my scarves while at the mil's this next week, so S can rock the kerchief look in style. :D

Aw, I miss this age so much! They're so funny and cute; exhausting, too, but mostly funny and cute ;D

Maybe it was command form and thus needed no conjugation? ;)

Cute!

You are probably right! :P She's even smarter than I thought. ;)

We try not to get too gaga over her utter amazingness, but it is sometimes hard. :P
