I went to Atlantic City this weekend for two days, and while it was fun (oh, how I love the slots) my girls are now extra super duper clingy. I will admit that I feel really really (REALLY) loved though. It's nice to be told over and over again, "Mommy I love you! Mommy, I missed you. Mommy, you're back, I'm happy you're back!" Yeah, I'm definitely loving this whole talking thing.
Charlotte and Katie are both starting to say some funny things, although as I'm sure all parents realize, they say exactly what I say. Every little phrase I utter is now repeated over and over. At dinner the other night Charlotte wouldn't eat and Katie told her "Try it Lala... you'll like it! I promise!" It's like having a mini me.
Lala has started calling everyone 'guys', which she gets from her Dad. She lined her animals up on the couch the other night, covered them carefully with a blanket and then told them "Night night guys!" Later Katie took them and threw them all on the floor. Lala came back and saw them and said repeatedly "OH NO GUYS! What happened? Poor guys!"

We have a Yo Gabba Gabba CD that has been playing in the car relentlessly. I love a song on it by the Roots that the girls call Mommy's song.. The SECOND it starts playing they both yell "Mommy's song!! Mommy, your song!"
And then there's Bedtime Lullaby. On the Gabba episode it accompanied a sweet little cartoon of a mouse, drifting off to sleep, dreaming of hopping in his rocket ship and zooming through a happy little universe filled with candy. It reminded me of Jack. One day after seeing it PJ said the same thing, that it reminded him of Jack. So that became Jack's song.
And the second the song starts playing, Lala always yells "Jack's song! Jack's song! Aw, night night Jack."
Yes, I love this talking thing.
(this is almost impossible to find online due to copyright issues, but evidently many other people love it too, as there's a ton of these videos people made and posted right off their televisions)
