Nancy's World... In Her Own Words

Nancy has finally come of age. That's to say she's reached fourteen months, the age where, as you'll know if you've read all my previous posts, (and if not why not?) my parents counted up the words I said and wrote them down.

I posted Jack's list for the insight I think it gives into the way a just-over-one-year-old's mind works. I find it fascinating. But then I am their Dad. If you don't, please forgive me for this self-indulgence and skip to the next blog entry.

Both Jack and Nancy seem to know loads more words than I did at that age. So either my kids are much cleverer than me (which is perfectly possible) or my parents weren't as anal as me in noting them down (which is also perfectly possible).

Over to Nancy....
