Tonight, after you had been in bed for about 10 minutes you yelled, "Mommy! Mooooommmmmy! I have a booooooggggeerrrrrrrr!"
And I thought, that's my thing I love about you today. Not the booger part, but the way you consistently catch me off guard with cute/funny/witty/creative/surprising/thoughtful things you say.
Here are several of our favorites:
Me: Stop being so cute!
You: No! I'm going to be so cute some more!
To Daddy out of nowhere: Daddy? You're awesome.
In the back seat of the car after some quiet introspection: Mommy? I LOVE pink and purple and sparkly things.
To Lambie (your stuffed animal): Lambie! Stop being so wiggly!
To Daddy when we met him for lunch: Daddy, I haven't seen you in such a long time!
In the car at dusk: Mommy! They already put the moon up!
Upon seeing the horses pulling the carriages on the Plaza: Gasp! Can I get in there????
In Target: Mommy, I wanted to play with those today and you say 'no' and that makes me so! sad! (a foot stomp accompanied each exclamation point)
To me one morning: I want Pop to come over and I want you to leave.
Your conversation with Lambie upon waking up from your nap one day: You know what, Lambie? This is not my Birdie Blanket anymore, it's yours now! (Singing) It's yooooooouuuuuurrrrsss! This is your Birdie Blanket nooooooowwwwwwww!"
Struggling to put your shoes on: Oh my goodness! I'm having a rough time!
To me after you found one of your baby teething toys: Mommy! I'm going to give this to Baby Faith when she comes home! Is that so nice of me?!
To Daddy after you almost ran him over running around the house: Oh! Sorry, Sir!
Pretending the thermometer is a phone: Hello? Yes? Your fever hurts? Okay, I will come help you.
You: Oh! Daddy forgot his hat! Maybe we can call him!
Me: Sure, we can call him
You: (singing to the tune of Amazing Grace) I once was lost! But now I found his haaaaatttttt! Maybe we will caaalllll hiiiiimmmmm!
You: Mommy, do you know what I love?
Me: (laughing) What do you love?
Lila: Little girl dogs and little girl cats and little girl lambs!
And I know I have shared this one before, but it is one of my all-time favorites. Daddy was helping you get dressed and you objected to his clothing choice: No! Princesses don't wear jeans!
Oh, Lila. You never cease to amaze and amuse me! I love you!
