Wait, it gets worse.
If he says cool, I automatically add an "io" which means I say "coolio." Yeah, I know.
Then, the rhyming nerd in me takes over and I say "coolio boolio."
Now I have my poor husband saying it. If I say, "I'm leaving work early!" he'll respond "coolio boolio!" It's now a family thing.
So naturally, I had to start this trend with Liliana. I always call her chica. And this has of course developed into "chica mica." Everyday when I first see her in the morning I say "HEY CHICA MICA!"
Liliana has already made more advances in the last two weeks than she had in the previous month! On her 8 month birthday she started waving in response to a wave and now if you just say "hi" to her (even without the aid of my waving), she'll wave back (as evidenced in the video).
Also, as I blogged about earlier, she started crawling in the last couple weeks! For the last week or so she could only do a couple steps and would fall before regaining momentum, but if you put food in front of my child, she will FIND A WAY to get there. This motivation has made her crawl like a mad woman now. She can crawl across the entire living room for 3 pieces of cereal. Poor child, she got her Daddy's appetite.
Therefore, for you viewing pleasure, enjoy seeing my chica mica wave and crawl!
