It was a little chilly this morning, you understand.  So, being the mother that I am, I thought it a good idea to cloth my child in a light jersey.  Sophie decided otherwise.  After struggling with her for a moment (mother tries making funny sounds to distract baba whilst attempting to slide jersey over fingers and up arm, and baba puts arms to forehead in a ‘I don’t want that’ gesture.)  But mother knows best, right?  So I persisted a little.  Then she said it, in an adorable baba voice and a cute scrawled face: “Nooo”.

‘No’, she said!  Amazing! My baby girl is

  1. expressing herself verbally and
  2. making up her own mind as to what she does or doesn’t want. 

At an age of a year and a half, I find that incredible. Yay baba!
