Oh this two year old of mine, I know I am completely biased but her spirit just moves me! She is quite the clown. Lately I have been falling over laughing at her expressiveness; she stretches her eyes wide and cups her chin with her hands for emphasis. I need to record this kid, but she's kind of quick.
Eden has always thought she could talk. I guess she has; we just don't always understand her. Sometimes I get it completely. Other times it's like she is speaking a secret language. Still it's fun to listen to her; soon she will be pronouncing all of her words correctly-too soon. Often she sounds like the priest from The Princess Bride. I relish it while I can.
The other evening she strolled into the kitchen where I was washing dishes and announced:
"I'm afwaid of da dahk." (I'm afraid of the dark)
Me: "Oh, really."
Then without missing a beat,
Eden said, "I'm afwaid of da moooonnnn."
Eden, "Yup." And with that she strolled back outside into the dark with the sky filled with a bright, waning moon. Um, okay.
Happy Tuesday everyone!
