Rowdy Grammy phone home
Your Grammy rang us last night to tell us about the time that she got me vaccinated. She was very excited to talk to you, and you gurgled at almost exactly the right time.
You have really started to talk to us. You make hooting sounds while you try out your vocal chords, and smile when a particularly gratifying noise comes out.
Last night on the phone it seemed like you could recognise your grandmother's voice, but you were slightly confused about how we managed to squeeze her into the telephone.
I'm glad that we are able to use this blog like that, to allow people overseas to feel included in your life and your progress. It was designed partially for that, but more than that it's designed to enable me to talk to you through the years. I know that we're starting to communicate now, but trading gurgles is really no substitute for the permanence and unequivocal nature of the written word.
