Owen: The Great Communicator

Even though the boys are 18 months old, they don't really talk that much yet...which according to their pediatrician is just fine because they are (a) boys, (b) second/third children, and (c) twins. I guess all of those things added together usually make for late talkers, so we're not supposed to worry.

They each have about a handful of words they use regularly, mostly consisting of "mama", "dada", "ball" and "bye". But it's hard to have a conversation based on just those words, ya know?

But luckily, Owen has finally started nodding his head yes and shaking his head no, so we were able to have our first real conversation the other day...

Me: Owen, do you want me to sing you a song?

Owen: nods his head yes

Me: How about Twinkle Twinkle?

Owen: shakes his head no

Me: Okay....how about Itsy Bitsy Spider?

Owen: shakes his head no

Me: The "ABC" song?

Owen: nods his head yes and gives me a HUGE smile

Aw, he was able to pick out his own song! My little guy is growing up.
