talking like she's two

And just like that, Matilda started talking. Every day she says more and more new words, she repeats everything we say, and she beams with pride. My favorite is when she adds something into a conversation with ease, just casually slips in a "see ya", "yeah sure", or even an "okie dokie". She can't help but smile and enjoy this new found freedom of expression that I too often take for granted.

Happy speaking Matilda, you have a lifetime ahead of you to speak your mind and let your feelings be known. Let your voice grow, let your wisdom lead, and always, always be nice.
