Olive has learned that dreaded word.  No.

Right now it is pretty cute.

She wags her pointed index finger at Zoe - after Zoe has snatched a cracker from her hand or as Zoe is about to steal a mouthful of cheerios from her tray - "No, no, no."

She sings it as she walks around the house.  "No, no, no, no, no."

She uses it when she (and we) don't have the right other words.

Do you want a cracker?  No

A yogurt? No.

A grape? No.

Some applesauce?  Emphatic head bobbing, yes.

She hasn't (yet) used it willfully and fitfully.  But I am certain that time will come.
