"Cheri, I have blonde hair and you have brown hair and Papa has......(pause)....Papa doesn't have ANY hair...and my daddy doesn't have any hair either."
"Cheri, this is a pretend God Bless You (followed by a tiny 'achoo'), but this is a REAL God Bless You" (followed by a bigger 'achoo'). (Not sure what was the difference between the pretend and the real other than the noise level).
And at 7:30 this a.m. I open my eyes to see her standing by my bed with this
bit of information: "Cheri, I went to the beach last night" (meaning she actually went last summer....her understanding of time is still not quite there yet).
Little Miss M is a bundle of joy for all of us but as my son said when I told him this a.m. about all her talking: "Now you know why we need them to spend the night from time to time....so we can get a break." She also loves to sing and is constantly making up her own tunes & lyrics. Maybe she will be a famous song writer one day or perhaps a stand-up comic. Whatever she does, I hope she'll always be as happy and delightful as she is now. She is one precious little girl!
