Day 15

29 Things to Love about Lila
Day 15

You love to imitate.  You've taken to mimicking us when we're on the phone so it's like having a little echo in the back of the car.

Me: Hi, Mom we're going to Costco.  Do you need anything?
You: Hi Mom, uh, Costco, uh need anyting?
Nanny on the other line: When are you going?
Me: Right now; we're on our way.
You: On our way!
Nanny: Maybe I'll meet you there.
Me: Ok, we'll be there in ten minutes.
You: Ok! Ten Minutes!
Nanny: Alright, I'll leave in five minutes and call you when I get there.
Me: Ok, see ya there.
You: See ya dere!

Actually the conversations don't usually go that smoothly because I usually have to ask whoever I'm talking to to repeat what they just said since all I could hear was you aping me!

When we leave the house, you insist on bringing with you whatever I'm bringing.  So if I'm holding my purse, keys and sunglasses, then a mad search for your purse, keys and sunglasses ensues.  If I'm bringing a water bottle, you simply must bring "Lila's cup."  

It's not just me you like to imitate.  You want to be just like Daddy, too:

Whenever Daddy makes a smoothie, you want one, too.  And because he's the best, he goes the extra mile and chooses matching cups and straws for the two of you:
