Actual conversations I had with Zoey this week:
Me: “Zoey, what do you want Santa to bring you for Christmas? What do you want for a present?”
Zoey: “One.” (holding up one finger)
Me: “Just one present?”
Me: “What should be in the present?”
I freakin’ love my kid. I am SO tempted to actually just wrap up a big box and give it to her. Thoughts on this?
The next day, while eating lunch:
Zoey: “Zoey I’m really sad.”
Me: “Why are you sad?”
Zoey: “There no chips in my mouth.”
She grabbed my hand in the living room and said “Go for a walk.” I asked, “Where should we walk to?” and she replied “Grandma’s house” in a “is there really any other worthwhile destination?” kind of voice. We then walked back and forth through the living room and kitchen singing made up words to “Over the river and through the woods, to Grandma’s house we go…” All while she held my hand.
Other funny things she says:
“Zoey I’m ….(hungry, tired, fill in the blank here). She’s stuck halfway between first person and third person and it is adorable.
“No see it.”
“Have it the … (whatever thing she wants). Have it! HAVE IT!!!!!!”
“No.” (I think this is her favorite).
(While clutching a stuffed dog to her chest): “Zoey/I’m breastfeeding Eleanor!”
Any time she sees a picture of a strawberry in a book, she pretends to eat it.
She can now sing the entire ABC’s, Twinkle Little Star, The Itsy Bitsy Spider, I’m A Little Teapot, Happy Birthday, and The Cleanup Song, and is currently attempting to master Jingle Bells.
