I just have to share this with you. The Inventor, at 20 months, has become quite the articulate one (albeit still holophrastically). His latest favorite ritual is to find me at the laptop, wherever I may be in the house, look me dead in the eyes and state "up" or "done", followed quickly by a sweeping hand gesture and the word "close". It's so charming that I have to oblige, at least 80% of the time. That's all.

That's funny--my daughter (25 months) does not approve of my having conversations with people who are not her, in person or on the phone. She climbs into my lap, touches my nose (she is confused about the finger to the lips gesture) and says "Hush." Then she puts both hands on my cheeks and says "Listen to me with your ears."
