Well we all know that each parent is biased about their own kid, but I have to say that Addilyn is quite advanced for her age. Besides looking older than she is, thanks to being super long (okay and heavy), she is quite alert and has been since she was born. She also rolled over when she was five weeks old. I mean it could be because the weight of her somewhat heavy and large head, aided her over, but advanced nonetheless.
While Addilyn isn't talking real words. And no where near it, I'm pretty sure I know that she is saying some quite profound things.
Like tonight when she was telling Chris all about how she doesn't care to wear headbands. And she'd probably be more comfortable wearing simple onsies, then the stiff dresses I sometimes put her in. She also told me that she'd go to bed at a more normal time if we only we put her in the place she'd want right away, instead of taking forever to figure out what she wanted. She'd also probably tell me to start cooking again, and that I can cook easy meals if I checked out some of the delicious, quick and family friendly recipes at www.campbellskitchen.com.
So maybe it's a good thing she isn't talking yet so I can keep dressing her and putting her where she wants. And not cooking real dinners. Which, let's be honest, it's really time I start.
While not clear words of wisdom, I still shared Addilyn's wise "words" on Campbell's Wisest Kid in the Whole World site. The Wisest Kid widget allows moms and dads to share, with their social networks, the wise, random, and funny things their kids say. I've have enjoyed checking out other kids' "wise words."
My nephew Travis would definitely be a contender with his words. Like the other day when my sister put my two year old niece in a toddler bed instead of her crib. He stood in the room with his arms crossed and just kept saying, "Guys, she's not ready for this. She's just not ready guys."
So make sure to head over and share your child's wise words!!
