Technically Enzo isn’t really a toddler anymore, but sometimes I hate being reminded of how grown up he is by calling him a preschooler. There’s no denying it, though, and it really does just get better and better. I love how lately he’ll latch onto a word and use it often, like the word “comfortable” or “weird.”
“I like this shirt, Mommy. It’s so comfortable.”
I can’t remember what we were doing, but he couldn’t do something or use something because, “it’s too weird.”
We have unfortunately also entered the potty talk stage, which I’m pretty sure started at preschool. It’s not the first time he’s picked up something from there, so there’s been a lot of “poopy” this and “pee pee” that. Joy. We really don’t know how to make it stop… ignoring doesn’t work, and explaining that there is a time and a place doesn’t work either.
He does, however, make up for it by saying one of my new favorite phrases. “You’re my best buddy.” Although lately he usually says, “You’re my best doughnut.” I can’t complain, doughnuts are pretty awesome.
As for Phoebe, she’s still working on new words every day and doing her best to communicate with us. Her animal noises are by far one of our favorites, but it’s pretty adorable when she tries to copy any and all words. She says “Please” and “Thank you” although doesn’t understand that just because she says “please” she isn’t always going to get what she wants. She just gets more persistent. Her favorite things to ask for are milk, juice, strawberries (which she steals off the cutting board when I’m not looking), snack, outside, kitty, TV (oops), and a ton of other things.
She’s also got a few books mostly memorized and likes to join in when we’re reading to her whether it be to make noises, point her finger or “read” from memory.
It’s also really adorable when she tries to sing. She loves to dance around and attempt to sing some of her favorite songs.
I’m enjoying it all while it lasts… before they become mouthy teenagers. 😉
