I decided to skip Eva’s nap yesterday, and some non-listening happened that resulted in a scolding that resulted in Eva sobbing. Once she settled, I asked her if she needed a snuggle and scooped her into my arms so we could snuggle on the couch. Her head was on my shoulder and I was playing with her hair and the next thing I knew, she was sleeping. It was a nice moment.
A friend from Texas was calling and Peter announced “It’s Texas!” before he answered it and went downstairs. Once he was downstairs Eva asked, “Texas in the phone, Mommy?”
Eva: Where is Daddy?
Me: He’s downstairs, talking on the phone.
Eva: I want to kiss him.
She has recently started saying really, as in: “It’s really hot!” or “It’s really heavy!” Or in this case, many reallys. Only she pronounces it: “Ree”.
Eva: I’m really really really cold!
Me: Yes, you need a sweater.
Eva: Yes! And a cookie!
I want to share more of these as they come along and I regret that I haven’t written down any other funny or cute phrases that she has said in the past.
