A blog about a kid. I like her.

More Cuteness at Grammy's House

To make up for my recent slackness, I'm initiating a new project: "Two A Day 'Til The End Of May." That's right--doubleplusgood Aletheiousity for the next week and day.

A couple of new little milestones this week. Aletheia and I had our weekly Daddy-Daughter Date Night yesterday, and this time we went to Elmo's Diner. Allie is a fan of their blueberry pancakes. They also have simple coloring sheets for the kids. I wrote her name at the top of the page, and she promptly pointed to the first letter and said "A!" She then proceeded to hand me a crayon and insist "A!" So I wrote another A and another and another--about four altogether. At that point she used her crayon to draw a very passable A herself, pointed to it and proudly proclaimed "A!" One down, 25 to go. But it impressed the heck out of me. I had no idea she could write an A yet. Unfortunately, I left the page on the table. You'll just have to take my word for it.

She made me and her mommy laugh hard this morning with her new record for most words in a sentence. We were just waking up and she was in our bed playing around and giggling, when she suddenly slid down, and walked to the door. Just before she went out into the hallway, she turned around and proclaimed "I'll be back in a minute!" We probably tell her that about ten times a day, so it's not a big surprise that she picked up on it, but we weren't expecting six words in a row out of her--three or four has been the standard until now.

This stage is a blast.

I remember the first time Kai broke out a whole sentence like that too, though I can't remember what it was. I was floored, thinking something silly like, "When did you grow up?" Original thought expressed from toddler height is still pretty distracting for me even now.
