First Word

Ok, it's official. Code Name Alice just said her first word.
Of course, she's been talking telepathically to me for a while and making all kinds of noises, naming everything she sees... but today she said a real word.

Sleep Deprivation Ninja: Hey, little honey dart, what's new?
Code Name Alice: Iglooooo!
SDN: Homogeneous beverages! She just said 'igloo'!!!1!!!!one!11!!!
Solar Dancer: Um... I think that was just....
SDN: Hold your tongue! Don't ruin this moment for me. She said 'igloo'. That means something. What 'igloo', sweet shuriken? Where do I find this.... 'igloo'?!
CNA: Igggloooo! heheha...ppppffft. geeeehahaha.
SDN: Yes, igloo, I hear you baby, but what about it. it's funny... ok, funny igloo but why, what's it all about? Where did you hear about this igloo....?
CNA: heheheeeeeeeeehahah.

And that was it. She didn't say anything more about the igloo. It's a mystery the world may never solve.

Since she didn't want to discuss igloos anymore, I had to consult my 3 favorite information sources: Wikipedia on Igloos, Instructables on Building a Quinzee (kina like an igloo), and Google Images

And then it hit me. I stumbled upon a picture of the inside of an igloo:


Just look at it. I don't know about where you are but it's pretty freaking hot in here today. Ninjas can rock out the cold like inuits, so I'm looking at this like a little slice of paradise. And, WTF? That's a huge igloo... I could live in that. It's an igloo mansion. You can only see the top floor and the front hallway but behind the camera is like a mile of igloo housing with 18 bedrooms and 16 bathrooms, 4 livingrooms, a library, a billiard room, etc... it's really cool...(I can take the pun-ishment)
And then it really hit me. What else does this remind you of (from a babies perspective)?
I'm going to leave it at that.

BTW, on another note, I'm working on some kick-ass ninja blogger awards since Tootsie Farkelpants over at Vintage Thirty was kind enough to pass me along a badge (albeit second hand) and there are some folks out there I think flog some major blog. Be prepared to be recognized, beotches.

Ha! I totally try to interpret all of Maddie's little noises into words. Every "DDddddduummmba" is her saying "Dad," and every Mmmmaammmba" is her saying, well, "Dad" as well!

"Igloo" is just the beginning. Soon she will drop the "I" and it will just be "gloo" and you'll be all, "what is this glue?". Right then you'll realize that Code Name Alice is talking about the forces that keep your family together.

"Forces" as in "energy" not as in "armed guards".

I woke up in the middle of the night stressing about how rabbits are skinned alive for their fur and decided to get up and research it and when I turned my computer on thought "igloo"
googled it
found a couple nice images
and saw your post

Now I am a FAN.
On to my research....
