So my office (really a cube) phone just rang, and I answered. The voice on the other end of the phone said "Hi Dada!"
It was awesome.
Crazy, really... for a while now, my daughter's been playing "telephone," picking up our house phone or cell phone(s) or even remote controls (or her baby monitor) and saying "Hi!" and telling us she's calling Grandma (my mother-in-law) or Nana & Papa (my parents). But when it came time for her to talk on a real phone to a real person, she would usually just smile at me (or my wife) when we told her to "Say 'Hi!' to" whomever was on the phone.
Now, though, she seems to be on board with talking on the phone, for real.
I'm sure there will come a time when I'll be asking her to NOT talk on the phone so much.
But for now, I can't wait till she calls again.
