I can't wait for these conversations! Liv and I communicate now with a series of grunts, giggles, gurgles and squeals - she just melts me when she laughs... I do talk to her conversationally - just so she can pick up the cadence of conversations - even though she has no idea (for the most part) what I'm saying. She does know her name, and she's responding to "doggy" by looking around for him. The pug is scared - as scared as one totally oblivious to life and everthing in it can be.

I don't know if Kevin told you, but I have a blog on Blogger now too - we can swap witticisms! Check it - I have posted some cute pictures that'll make you giggle!

Hi there " keldog " --- I was in the search engines researching SEO Software when I came upon your blog..... I don't know if you are out of place in the engines, or I am out of place and just don't realize it :-)
