small talk

nola has a tendency to repeat the last word said to her. even though i know we aren't really having "real" conversations, we can usually keep up the question and pseudo-answer thing long enough that our talks certainly have the flavor of them.

me: are you okay?
nola: okay.

sometimes she surprises us.

nola: [wailing dramatically]
cam: are you faking?
nola: [wailing even more dramatically]
nola: [pause] yes.

me: [reading book]
nola: [grabbing book] enough!

she has such a big throaty voice for such a little girl, and it sometimes seems like she gets tickled by her own speech. (she'll cover her mouth and giggle, or she'll cover her face and look down.) i love hearing her talk.
