We hard boiled some eggs for dying for Easter. One of them cracked when put it in the pot to boil it, so I knew we wouldn't be able to use that one. I went ahead and boiled it anyway. LL asked at dinner for an egg, so we just pulled that one out to eat it. She took a bite. Ate it. Took another bite. Ate it. Looked down and saw the yellow yolk in the middle and said, "Look! It has cheese in the middle!"
She walked up to the back door, tapped on it, and said, "Excuse me! Bono! Can you teach me how to be a dog?"
She went outside with Pop one afternoon hunting bugs. She came back in saying, "We're looking for a skank!" when she really meant "skink".
When I ask her a question, she's started saying, "I just really don't want to talk about it." She also sometimes says, "I just want to be alone."
Matt went on a camping trip one weekend, so it was just me and LL for a few days. When I was getting her ready for bed one night, she ran up to me and gave me a huge hug. She said, "I sure do love you!". I told her I loved her, too, and she said, "and I love your belly. And I love MY baby!". Sweet, sweet girl!
This has for sure been the month of make believe! She got her first imaginary friend - Charlie Brown. She would carry him (and sometimes all of his friends) around in her hand. We had to "carry" him, too. He went everywhere with her! To the potty, to eat, to bed, etc. It was so cute! She also has been pretending to be a puppy this month. She will bark and crawl around allllll over the place. She has also taken to calling us "Mommy Puppy" and "Daddy Puppy" and she wants us to only call her "Baby Puppy". It's pretty adorable. :)
She started singing songs by herself this month. Sometimes they're legit songs (like Twinkle Twinkle has been a fav) and she also makes up songs about EVERYTHING. She has been singing almost constantly when she plays. She gets it from Daddy, for sure!
We had another big milestone this month: sleeping at night in panties. We *just* started it at the very end of the month (literally - April 29). She was just a teeny bit damp when she woke up, but it's definitely a step in the right direction!
She told Matt on the way home the other day (in the car) that she had to go to the bathroom. Matt made up a song for her called, "Don't pee pee in your car seat" and they sang it together until they got home. He beat boxes at the beginning and she's taking to doing it, too. I'm telling you - it is hilariously cute to see my three year old little girl trying to beat box. :)
More next month!
