Anyway, I love her imagination. We are constantly playing something or being some characters from a show or story. I'm never just Mommy during the day, but rather a mouse, a princess, an evil step mother or an evil sea witch. What a fun age. I love the experiences with a first child...you really don't know what stage is coming next but it's such a joy to go through it with them for the first time.
Of course there is no less joy or surprise with the second child, either. Claire is becoming more and more of a little person. She is in a very "me, my, mine" stage. A little on the selfish side at the moment...What cracks me up is her line-up of sentences. The 3 basic sentences she has are: "I need...", "I want..." and "I like..." whatever the item is. The best part is when she doesn't actually like something instead of saying I don't like, she still says "I like" while shaking her head no.
She has a couple of words that she says backwards, and this is where the Latina part comes in. She can't say Yes, and instead says "si." It sounds like saying yes in Spanish. She is constantly saying "si mama." It's so a part of her vocabulary right now, we just laugh.
And I leave you with some pictures from our super sunny sunday!
|We tried to have a picnic lunch in the backyard.|
|This picture just cracks me up. Clearly, she is re-fueling during our visit to the playground which she calls play-town.|
|Enjoying the playground, and no the Junklesons weren't at the neighborhood playground this time.|
|Non stop fun|
