“so, is the baby just swimming around in there? …. is she wearing a swimsuit?”
overheard eleanor telling a friend, “we’re going to have a baby but i do not know WHAT we are going to do about the name.”
after i took her into the bathroom with me at a doctor’s appointment where i had to pee in a cup, i explained it to her. after my appointment as we were leaving, i asked her if she needed to use the potty before we left. she stopped quickly in her tracks and replied firmly, “i really don’t want to pee into a cup, mama.”
starts scratching my tummy, “i’m scratching the baby’s back!”
me: “what do you think the baby is going to look like?” eleanor: “um. probably a rectangle.” (i’ll admit the baby DID infact look a bit like a rectangle in our first few ultrasound photos we gave to eleanor, so i see where she gets it from.)
“my tummy doesn’t have a baby in it. my tummy is just full of vegetables.”
“i’m pretending your belly button is a microphone. HELLO IN THERE!”
several times a day, “i wanna check on the baby…” and pulls my shirt up and gets really close to my tummy.
after i finished eating a piece of chocolate, “well, it looks like the baby really likes chocolate!”
see more eleanorisms HERE. also, i feel like i’m kind of on top of photos, but i need to pull out the video camera more and capture her talking. samson too, since he’s talking so much more these days and really forming sentences we can understand. their mannerisms and the way they enunciate specific words or pronounce others, it’s just so good. i want to always remember it.
