my 4-year-old daughter has been talking non-stop for an hour and a half. playing with her new littlest pet shop animals...inventing stories...drawing me into the conversation...using her imagination....and yakkity yakkity yakkity.

i have never heard a kid talk like this one does. she never stops.

i sort of tune her out sometimes-

but then i look at her little face and i think

"i'm gonna miss this" when the house is quiet and she is gone.

her little dimple is so adorable. she puts her finger to her cheek, tosses her little head, raises her eyebrows so expressively...and just chatters.

honestly.

i've never heard the like.

chatter on, baby girl. someday this old house will be far too quiet, and you and your dimples and your chatter will be somewhere else

and i'm gonna miss it.
