Isabella surprises me everyday with the stuff she says. I am constantly amazed by the words she knows and how she’s able to put them together. Instead of writing about our evening in standard prose, I’ll tell you about it via Isabella speak.
Arriving at home:
“Welcome home Mommy! Welcome home mommy!”
“Watch ‘Yo Gabba Gabba’! Get cooking mommy.”
“Really yummy, mommy! Tastes good!”
“Bella hold the JELLO, pleeeeease!”
“Sing the ‘Hey Dude’ song mommy!” (which is sung to the the Beatles’ ‘Hey Jude’)
“Jungle song – mommy do that!” (“The Lion Sleeps Tonight” song)
“Daddy do beat box.”
Putting peas in her JELLO cup and then saying “no peas in there” as she took them out.
After dinner we went for a walk around the neighborhood and eventually ended up at the park. She climbed on the teeter-totter and this is what happened:
We came home and did some coloring before heading off to bed. She insisted on taking her plastic alligator and cow with her. From the kitchen I could hear this on the monitor:
“Good night orange alligator. Good night blue cow. Good night playground. Good night sandbox. Good night juice. Juice in sandbox dirty.”
“That’s Elmo’s woooooooorld! That’s Elmo’s toys! That’s Elmo’s alligator! That’s Elmo’s hands!”
She’s finally off to sleep now and I’m about to pay bills. Tomorrow I go in for a much needed massage and I can’t WAIT!
Good night everyone!
