One of my favorite things about Sloan's current age (she'll be 3 1/2 next month) is that she's this miniature (albeit slightly unpredictable) human. She's sharp and observant, sweet and sensitive, and makes us laugh on an hourly basis with the things that come out of her mouth. While I wasn't able to capture even a fraction of all of the things she says, here are a few of my favorites from the last week:
(After asking her to get ready for a bath) "Gimme a sec Mama, I'm working."
Waffle topping request: "I want cream. Whipped cream." (P.S. Who is she, James Bond?)
"You know what's yucky? Poop."
"My favorite color is pink. Oh and red, and blue, and purple. And all of the colors."
"I love you so much in the world!"
"Lunch first, candy second."
(While the bath is draining) "Don't flush it yet, I still need to wash!"
(In relation to the package of gummies on the counter) "Can you put those away so I don't eat them?"
"Aahhhh! There's a shark!" (I hold her). "Phew! Thank you for saving me, Emily."
(Looking at Geoffrey) "You have to get a hair cut soon, Dada."
(Situated 1-inch from my face while I was sleeping.) "Oh no! Someone woke you up!"
(After climbing in bed with us at 5 a.m.) "Whoa, there are so many people in here!"
"This is my sponge. His name is 'Beef.'"
"It's so messy in here." - Sloan
"Who made the mess?" - Hannah, our Creative Coordinator
(Doesn't miss a beat) "Rocco." - Sloan
(I asked her if she was ready to get ready for bed) "Actually no. I'm very busy." (As you can see, this is a pattern.)
"I'm sorry you're sad. Maybe when I'm done with my pancakes, I can give you a kiss. There. Does that feel better?"
(After opening the shades in the morning) "Oh boy. That's bright. Can I have my sunglasses?"
