From the Journal of Space Monkey Twins
Space Monkey investigative team has undertaken an ambitious new objective: Communication with the Humans. After much research most essential humanoid keyword has been determined: “Duck.” Exact meaning and usage of “duck” under continuing evaluation. Following are developing hypotheses and updates thus far.
Essential duck. Size, shape, and mouth-feel strangely addictive. We hope to acquire more sample ducks soon, as we believe they may appease the Spacemonkey masses.
Looks like a duck. Squeaks like a duck. Investigation ongoing.
We no longer believe this to be a duck.
Human response: “Not a duck–broccoli.” Interesting.
We test all boundaries, growing ever closer to communicative goals.
Until next time, your tireless

Hmmm…very interesting developments. We here at Space Monkey command see your investigations and await further news.
Updates coming soon. We await your wise instructions.
Bear was saying “duck” about trucks for a long time, and then he called everything “duck,” and now I think he’s back to “duck” meaning actual ducks (which he sometimes refers to simply by quacking?) and trucks and the occasional misc. item.
Language acquisition is weird.
Weird and so fascinating! The slow, slow progression of developments leading toward language. Already, with next to no words, it’s amazing how much I feel like we’re communicating. Sometimes I feel like I’m imagining it, but it’s definitely real.
No, it’s real! And it’s like discovering that your dog or fish can talk to you!
LOL. This is hilarious! I think we have that same frog, I mean, duck. 🙂 Language is so much fun!
Thanks for your support of the Space Monkey Mission. It’s a very serious (and funny) business!
Are the results in yet, or are the investigations still pending? 😉
Investigations definitely still pending!
Haha, so cute and so hilarious!! At least they are eating broccoli, that is pretty impressive! 😉
Ha. Yes, though I think they like it less than they used to.
A story that celebrates not just our little ones but the little child in all of us. Thanks for the bringing tons of smiles!
Glad it made you smile! Thanks for commenting!
