Year 2 Day 18: Baby Whisperer

Our baby niece is quite the 'Chatty Cathy' and we all sat and watched in awe tonight as she had an extensive conversation with her Makka Pakka doll (a character from a TV programme here called In the Night Garden). Lots of cooing and baby gurgles mixed with smiles and squeals -- essentially the epitome of adorable despite having NO idea what secrets she was telling him. My best guess is she told him every little thing she knows.

Matt jumped in at one point and encouraged her to continue this deep conversation with the Winnie the Pooh puppet (a gift from the two of us that he thoughtfully picked out just before she was born). It's really sweet to me to watch him interact with her and she certainly responded with lots of smiles for Pooh bear and her Uncle Matt. I must admit Makka Pakka did set the bar pretty high and had a bit of an unfair advantage over dear husband -- given his limited knowledge of the English language and that he is largely popular across the UK for his puppety-cuteness and baby-charm.

Plus, he is also on nearly a celebrity to boot!
