Made up Words...

Eli & Emerson have always been able to communicate with each other. They "get" each other even when others around have no idea what's going on.

Today they created a word, it had meaning for the both of them, but Marcus and I could not figure out what exactly it meant.

Emerson ran in from outside and said, "mama I want to 'twinkle' (at least whatever it was she was saying sounded like twinkle to me) then she asked, "Want to see?"

I went out and the best I could tell "twinkling" simply involved Emerson repeatedly riding her bike off the concrete into the dirt"

"See mom I 'twinkling'..."

I still didn't get it, so I asked Eli who was sitting next to me, "What's sissy doing?"

"Sissy twinkling"

So clearly whatever it was that she was doing was a game/word they had developed together. I'm glad they were having a good time even though I have still have no idea exactly what the word or the game is.

I love them and their imagination. And their language. LOL

Love it!
I'm curious to see what my 3 do, if anything, since they have a big sister.
