Ten cool things about my daughter right now:
October 03, 2011

    1.  Whenever people ask “How are you?” she thinks they’re asking “How old are you?” so she always answers “TWO!”
    2.  It is apparent to her by how often people ask her “How are you?” that the answer “TWO!” is very important.  Lately when we meet new people, like cashiers or passing bicyclists, she preempts their question.  “Hi,” she says.  “I’m two.  My name is Charlotte.”
    3.  I let her open all of our junk mail.  She rips the envelopes open and yells “HAPPY BIRTHDAY, CHARLOTTE!”  Six days a week for two months, we’ve had happy birthday mail.
    4.  She had her first cookie last week at a friend’s house.  It was warm and fresh from the oven and she dipped it in milk.  Sometimes when I ask her what she wants for breakfast now, she says “cookies and milk.”  I say “no, we’re not having cookies for breakfast,” and she says, “OH BUMMER.”
    5.  Also heard on the topic of cookies was “I like reading books.  I like eating peas.  But I LOVE cookies.  Cookies are my favorite.”
    6.  Yesterday at a flu shot clinic, someone offered her a cookie.  She leapt at the opportunity, even though there wasn’t any milk.  When she woke up from her nap later, she said “Momma, I love flu shots.”
    7.  She calls her hair color blondie.  “No touching Charlotte’s blondie hair,” she says when I try to run my fingers through her curls.
    8.  We built a fairy garden together this week and filled it with herbs.  It progressed at a snail’s pace because I wanted her to be involved with a project from start to finish.  She did the entire thing naked.
    9.  She farted yesterday.  “EXCUSE ME!” she said as she ran out of the room.  “Too stinky for the baby!”
    10.  Sometimes when I lay her down at naptime, she asks me to stay.  “Momma,” she says, “I need you.  Please stay here.”  So I do.

    Matthew has asked for chocolate milk for breakfast everyday for the past twleve months of his life. No joke. Same exact thing: he knows the answer will be no… but it’s like he holds out for that slight chance he’ll catch me off guard one day and get a yes, lol.

    Also, bummer is the cutest response ever. I’d probably give in to a response like that. :-P

    “OH BUMMER” is my response every morning when I realize that I am also not having cookies for breakfast.

    She is the gaaaahdorablest.
