One night this week she came running to me from the potty, excitedly saying "wee wee" as she pointed to it. And there WAS a suspicious spot of moisture on the potty. So maybe she gets it!
And it WAS her first time saying "wee wee" - I think that counts as another toilet milestone . . .
A couple of new words:
- Bath - as in "Check me out, Mommy! I'm in the bath!" "No baby, that's the shower." "No, bath, Mommy, bath!"
- Bed - as in "I love being on your bed, Mommy! This is the best place to be!"
Speaking of beds, as much space as she takes up in our bed in the morning, it does make for a rather sweet alarm clock as she pokes at various parts of our body and says "ears," "nose," "knee," etc. very loudly. Or when she is softly muttering "ttttt," "tttttt," to herself for a few minutes, followed by a loudly shouted "button." Yep, she's finally got her "tttts" downpat!
And Esmé regularly gives us glimpses into the confusing world of babyhood. She brought me a book, excitedly showing me the letter "O" on the cover and saying "ball." "No, baby, that's a circle like a ball, but it is really the letter 'O'."
So she puts down the books and brings me a blue frisbee, once again saying "ball." "No, baby, that's a circle like a ball and like an 'O,' but it is really a frisbee."
One of these days it'll all click, I'm sure.
The latest in dental hygiene is her insistence on using a paintbrush to brush her teeth. We've struggled long and hard on identifying the difference between the uses of a toothbrush and a hair brush, and I thought we were making progress until the paintbrush entered the picture.
We are seeing a great future in store for her as a pickpocket. She has already started training. And she knows which types of currencies have the most value - she goes straight for the US dollars every time. Soon she will be able to support us so we can retire in style.
