Eli has been talking in complete sentences for several months now. There is only one problem. I don't have a clue what the kid is saying. And I think I am the worst person at comprehending the mutterings of my little tot.
Everyone else seems to know what he is saying and they will interpret for me occassionally. For instance, a week ago my sister stopped by on the way to Cedar City. Eli started blabbering to her about something and they had a good exchange of words. I was holding a baby and she came back to report the interaction. She told me that Eli said "I want a cookie. I want one for my other hand too." Okay, it might not have been exactly that, but it was along those lines.
Why am I the only person that can't understand what he is saying? This week I have really put an extra effort into understanding all of the words coming out of his mouth. I have made some headway, but I still think it is mostly a bunch of jibber jabber.
