Elizabeth often surprises folks when she tells them she's from Texas because she doesn't use the expected accent or idioms. (Mightcould fixing to, ya'll?) I'll admit, I've never found the Southern manner of speech particularly becoming.

Imagine our amazement and dismay when Eliana started drawling her vowels. The most common instance I can think of is Ellie's dragging of the 'a' in "What is thaaaaaat?" She's also switched from calling Elizabeth "mommy" to "maaamaaaa."
