I was sitting in a rocking chair rocking this ladies little boy. He was fast asleep – and right before rocking him, I laid Owen down in the crib behind me with a bottle – yes yes, I know – never lay a baby down w/ a bottle – well, when your baby is off schedule and not in his regular environment, you can break those rules. Any how… Owen is drinking his bottle, as I got this other baby to sleep.. and finally as this baby zonked out – Owen decides to stand up, peeking over the corner of the crib and around the chair I was sitting. He then proceeds to make noises…
EEeee (this is his favorite)
Just random sounds, and very loudly.
It ended with me attempting to put the other baby in a crib – in order to get Owen to hush…
which didn’t really work well – 🙂
The other baby woke up – but happy… and so everyone was back on the floor again.
As they played however, I noticed something…
No one else (as in babies) talked!
We had 5 babies in the room – 4 mo (Vera), 10 mo, 11 mo, 9 mo (Owen) & 15 mo?
Out of all those babies Owen was the only one making noises… It was like he was trying to talk to us, but obviously cant yet.
It dawned on me though… Owen was the only one in the nursery who was 3rd born.
The rest were all 1st or 2nd born. The one 2nd born we had in there did talk some, but it was a little girl and she was pretty timid and just wanted to sit in someones lap with a book.
Im seeing things in Owen that I think are coming to surface because he has older brothers.
Caleb by this age was not very vocal.
Its neat though 🙂
I love seeing Owen trying to be like his brothers.
We will just have to monitor what they teach him 😉
