Knock Knock!

Sophia has started telling Knock Knock jokes and it is the cutest thing in my world right now.

Here's how it goes.

Sophie: Knot, Knot!

Me: Who's there?

Sophie: (looks around the room for inspiration) Daddy!

Me: Daddy who?

Sophie: Daddy WHOooooooooo? Knot, Knot!

Me: Who's there?

Sophie: (inspired by the movie playing on the TV screen) 'Chantet!

Me: Enchanted, who?

Sophie: 'Chantet WHOoooooooo?

And so on.

My favorite is that she did it last night after she was in her bed with the door shut and Chloe came out to go to the bathroom. She could hear Chloe, so she started in on the Knock Knock jokes. Joel and I were just cracking up to listen to her go on and on with them.

Her speech is definitely improving, but she hasn't had the therapist come in over a month because the therapist's baby was up in Primary Children's with RSV for several weeks. She'll finally be coming again next week, and we've got to start working. She made a big jump when we started speech therapy, but we've become complacent and I'm realizing there is still a lot I don't understand.

But, she can tell jokes, so that's something!

  6. Hey, I was led to your blog via Misty's because of your fundraiser for Isaac. I think that's an amazing thing you're doing! I just recently went through having a baby with anencephaly. My main reason for commenting was asking if you could change your original post about wishes for Isaac. You linked to the wikipedia page for anencephaly and it really scares a lot of people to see the picture of that baby on there. That is not how anencephalic babies look. While they are missing the top part of their heads, their limbs are fully formed and they don't have abrasions on their skin. The best website out there for anencephaly can be found at anencephalie-info.org. I'm going to try and replace the picture on wikipedia with one of my own little girl, but until I figure out how to do that, if you could not direct people there it would be great. I don't want people to think of my little girl as a monster or anything.

    Wow, long comment. I hope none of that sounds offense or demanding. It is really just a strong desire of mine to not direct people to that page because of the picture which gives the wrong impression of anencephaly.

  17. What a hoot!

    It sounds like there's been a lot going on with the therapist, so I hope you aren't being hard on yourself for not working on it all that much lately. She'll get it! She will. And for now, those words that are a little off? So cute. :)

  19. Sophie is so, so darling. Actually, strike that, all of your girls are, Lara. Seriously.

    Humor is one of the best traits that we can instill in our children, don't you think? It is akin to a survival skill in our house.

    -Wenda!

  22. Hi Lara! Hope you're all doing well. Adorable story. Our kids have gone through the knock-knock joke phase...so fun.

    I also wanted to link you up to an article in the Dec 2001 Ensign written by Derek's sister about her baby that was born with a similar condition. I think it's great you're raising money for them! Here's the article: http://www.lds.org/ldsorg/v/index.jsp?vgnextoid=2354fccf2b7db010VgnVCM1000004d82620aRCRD&locale=0&sourceId=4b1d8c6a47e0c010VgnVCM1000004d82620a____&hideNav=1

  23. Anencephaly is a condition where there is little or no brain, as well as no scull.

    The baby mentioned in the article mentioned, has brain, but wasn't contained with in it's scull.
