Over the weekend, g has started to say "I -tah-tu" (translation: I love you) I don't think it is something that she understands or a concept that she has grasped as of yet, but despite an ignorance to what the phrase actually means, it is really nice to hear. She also tends to accompany this with a massive amount of hugs and kisses. She seems to enjoy hugging now or strangling according to G. She would clutch G tightly around the neck and say i-tah-tu again and again. All together now...awwwwww
