Sending messages through the baby

I think I've mentioned before that I talk like a baby to Cole big time. I just can't help it. I recently heard a video recording of what I sound like when I'm talking to him and yikes; I sound like a crazy mom. But he seems to like it so I can't say I'll stop.

Also, I've noticed that a lot of times when I'm talking to Cole like a baby, what I'm really doing is just sending messages to Steve through him.

For example:

"Ohhh! You have a dirty diaper!! Maybe daddy will change it for you!!"

"You're so sleepy!! Maybe daddy will put you to bed!!"

"Oh my goodness! What is that music daddy's listening to?!"

"What is daddy wearing?!!"

(all said in my highest pitch baby voice of course)

Do any of you other moms do this? I can't be the only one!

And here's a picture of me in action, talking like a baby to a baby:
This is me talking to baby Annabelle.

All I can say is that it works, everyone!! Believe it or not, I get those babies to smile for me!


  1. haha, I totally do that! And it works! :)

  2. I thought for sure you were going to post a video of you baby talking I think you might be able to get me to smile!

  3. So funny! I also do that! Your first quote about the dirty diaper could be a direct quote from me. :)

  4. I do it too!

    Although, now that Harvey's older... sometimes I really DO send messages through him.

    "Oh, go see if Daddy will get you a cup of juice..." :)

  5. bahaha!! It totally do that all. the. time. Especially the dirty diaper hand-off ;)

  6. Haha! So funny. :) Love the picture especially.

  7. Haha! Too funny! I'll have to keep that in mind for the future :)
