Here are some highlights from my niece who is now talking quite well - not in sentences but she uses a lot of words.
I ask Baby is she is thirsty and pull out a children's monkey cup.
Sister: Oh, that's the same one she has at home. Look Baby!
(Baby proceeds to get very excited about the cup and I proceed to only fill the already small cup 1/3 full)
(Baby walks around the kitchen shaking the cup around so excitedly that all the water spills out)
Baby: Oh! Water! (as though "How did that get there?" "Why is the floor all wet?")
Me: Can you say Sarah?
Baby: A Sawa (short for Aunt Sarah).
Me: Can you say Marc?
Sister: Can you say Erin?
Baby: Yeah. (as though even asking such a question was an insult to her intelligence)
We play with some bubbles. I blow one towards Baby's face but it goes straight into her eyes and pops.
I cringe, waiting for her to start crying; bubble solution probably stings.
Baby: Oops! My eye. Bubble!
I've decided I need to teach the Baby Chinese.
Me: Baby, 你想要睡覺嗎？
Baby turns around and points at her mother.
I slap my hand down on the bed with a laugh: Oh Baby, that was a question, not a statement about your mom. (She heard me use the question particle, 'ma' and thought I had said 'Ma')
Baby slaps her hand down on the bed in perfect imitation of me and laughs.
