This morning, Kailey and Alden were sitting at breakfast together, each jabbering to themselves and playing with (I mean eating, of course) their food. Alden started saying, "neo - unnn", "neo - unnn" and Kai perked up and said, "Alden, are you saying NOUN? NOUN"
He looked at her and said, "neo -- unnnn".
She smiled and said, "NOUN... that's a person, place or thing" and Alden immediately replied, "oh!"
It was so funny. He was right on cue - as though he had totally understood what she just said. "Oh!"
(It turns out there was a kitten scratching at the door and Alden was saying "meow" to let us know that the kitten wanted to get in.)
