Juliaisms- This learning stuff is hard work

Robert says I need to start writing down Juliaisms, funny things that Julia says, now that she is talking more. Since she is always jabbering about something I'm sure there will be plenty of these to come as she figures things out in the world. Today's simple Juliaisms are about Julia learning her numbers and letters.

Before we left for our LA/Utah trip last week I was reading Julia a book about the alphabet and animals. I was trying to point out the letters for her, saying "D, like duck. Duh-duh-duh-duck." After we came back from our trip we read the same book again and Julia impressed me by pointed to the duck and going "duh-duh-duh-duck!" Then she went on to the E, "duh-duh-duh-elephant!"

This morning while Julia was finishing up breakfast she was holding two grapes. I asked "How many grapes do you have Julia?" She held up the first one, "one." Then she held up the second one, "two". Then she held up the first one again, "three." Then the second one again, "four," and so on up to eight. Apparently two grapes actually count as having eight grapes if you count it the Julia way.
