No? Yes!

Briggs is talking more and more every day, but sometimes the English language can be tricky to grasp.  Briggs is starting to say "no".  It's no surprise that this word has entered his vocabulary as it's probably in the top 10 most used words in the house.  The funny thing, however, is that he seems to be confused by the meaning and generally says "no" when he really means "yes."  Zach and I hypothesize that he hears us say "no" to Adelie multiple times every day before she goes ahead and does exactly what she wants to do, probably confusing his understanding of what "no" really means.  (Hmmmm....maybe that's Adelie's problem too.)  Regardless, it's pretty cute when he does this.  For example, the other day we were playing on the playset and he kept wanting to go down the slide.  He'd say "Slide."  I'd ask, "Do you want to go down the slide?"  He'd smile big and sweetly say "No."  I'd correct him and say, "You mean yes."  And then he would say "Jes."  He has also said "no" to more fruit at dinner, playing with a specific toy he requests, looking at books in the car, or going to Grammie's house, each time really meaning yes.  He says it in such a sweet little voice with his happy little smile.  It's just one of those cute little Briggs things that I know I'll want to remember as it always makes me smile.

Do I love this boy?
