    Love it. It’s reassuring to see “said no to every suggestion”. We were wondering how universal that was… also how long does it last!?

    When they are out of the house.

  4. Mike says:

    Yeah but I mean (and I think you’ve been there):

    Me: Do you want water?
    Baby: No *drinks water*

    Me: *tosses baby in the air and she’s laughing hard* Do you like that?
    Baby: No! …again! … again!

    Me: Do you want cheese?
    Baby: No *eats cheese*

    Me: Do you want to go to the playground?
    Baby: No

    Me: Do you like to draw?
    Baby: No

    Me: Say “yes”
    Baby: No
    Me: Say “yes”
    Baby: No
    Me: Ok
    Baby: *20 seconds go by* Yes!

    YES. 80 does the same thing. I’ve learned to pause and wait for the delayed, secondary “yes” or action.

    She also sometimes says “no no no no no no no”, and if I start interjecting “yes” between them, she says no more emphatically. If I start saying no, she pauses, then says yes.

    So far it’s mostly been cute. And the rest of today was actually great. I don’t know how, since she’s so insanely tired from traveling, but it was great. See:
