Diamonds in the Rough Roundup 10/3/14

It’s been a crazy fun week because my son is starting to talk finally!  He’s more like a parrot at this point but it’s so incredibly satisfying to hear him say even the smallest of words.  He’s been babbling for a while but looks like he’ll be saying real stuff in no time!  They grow so flippin fast.  Here are a few great posts I would like to share:

  1. My friend’s kid just started to find his voice and he will make a lot of noises. It’s such a fun age when they start talking and having conversations. Our other friend’s kid who is just over two years old is a ton of fun to talk to. Always so many funny and interesting things said by her.
