I am constantly amazed by how much C learns and grows every day. She’s so smart…with that growing knowledge base comes what I fondly refer to as toddlerisms….those moments where your child unexpectedly says something that blows your mind. Like when C chases the dog with a diaper and says, “Come here Winnie! Diapee Winnie!” or when she goes down the stairs, pretending to leave, and says, “I love you Mommy! See you in a bit!” Or when I lay her down for a nap and she says, “Night night Mommy, see you later!” These moments are my favorite. Not only do they make me proud at how very quickly her language skills are developing but those are the moments I wish I could freeze in time and never, ever forget. Here are a few more, accompanied by pictures I took over the weekend of her painting.
C: Winnie ‘noxious! (Winnie is our dog)
Mommy: Are you saying that Winnie is obnoxious?
C: Yeah, ‘noxious!
C: *Cough, Cough
Daddy: C, are you okay?
C: Yeah, I’m fine.
Mommy: Alright, it’s time to go night night!
C: NOT BY MYSELF!!!
My favorite moment happened last week just after C gave me a hug she said, “Good girl, Mommy!”.
What are your little one’s best toddlerisms?
