Ran Across My Baby Book While Unpacking

It has virtually nothing in it (fourth kid), but I was amused by these tidbits:

The Expected:
16 months: Loves to look at books. Eats everything we eat.
At 19 months: Repeats all words and speaks in two-three word phrases.

The Much Less Expected:
16 months: Loves babies of all kinds.
19 months: Can definitely put an idea across with only a few words.

Damn. How different would my life be right now if the love for children or the talent for economical self-expression had stuck?
