Mommy: What does that say?
Mommy: Yeah! Good job!
Esmé (16 months) carefully scribbles with same bathtub crayon.
Mommy: What are you writing?
Of course! Why couldn't Mommy figure that one out?!
With a daddy, a grandpa, and an oupa in the house now, things are a little noisier than they have been for the past few weeks. During one conversation, Esmé had her ears covered with her hands, ignoring us and chattering away to herself. Sometimes you just need to focus on your own thing, you know.
A couple of new words this week:
- Spoon - as in "Where's my spoon? Oh, I am sitting on it! Look, Mommy, I can sit on my spoon!"
- Ocean - as in "I see the ocean! Yeah! I love the beach!"
- Bird - as in "I know what a bird is! They fly in the sky (pointing up)! And there's one in that picture!"
- Pray - as in "Aren't we going to pray now? You just put me in my high chair." Never mind that grace was said for the whole group a little bit ago.
With all the skateboarding and table tennis and beach and everything else that's been going on, here is a photo of Miss Esmé all tuckered out, sunglasses and remote control in hand.
