Before Isobel could talk she used to spend all day saying “wow” over and over and over. No one minded because it was pretty freaking adorable.
I really took Isobel’s “Wow” phase for granted. Probably because I was waiting anxiously for her to say real words. Now she says real words all the time and I dearly miss the constant stream of “wow!” that used to make up the babble of her daily conversation. I keep waiting anxiously for the next milestone, the next achievement, and then suddenly I realize she doesn’t want to sit in my lap and cuddle all day and she won’t let me put silly hats on her any more. Boo.
