dear ever, i love...

(caught you sitting on top of my art desk stirring/spilling dirty paint water while saying "soup" because that is what you thought you were doing...making soup.)

dear ever, i love the way you do or say.....

-"mama!" repeatedly with growing volume and intensity when you want me to get you out of your crib in the morning or after a nap.  i also love when you are being sweet and you say mama in a more gentle way while hugging me or touching my face.
-"showa pow" (shower power) it was something i started saying as a goofy way of making you excited for bath time.  you say it when we go in either of the bathrooms, when you see a picture of you getting a bath as a baby, or sometimes just for fun.
-"es the mote?" (where's the remote?)  you say this after hearing us say this while searching for the remote to watch a movie.  now instead of your usual "moomee" (movie) to let us know you want to watch something you ask where the remote is.  
-speaking of movies here are the one you ask for most often:
     -"oxth" (lorax)  notice the th i added there...you have an impossibly adorable lisp with certain words.
     -"lanuna" (la luna short film)
     -"breev" (brave)
     -"gru" (despicable me)
     -"tatooie" (ratatouille)
-when you are being very affectionate...typically to the kitties or your toys you squeeze them and say "kiss you!" then promptly plant a smooch.  the first time you did this to me a couple weeks ago my heart nearly burst.
-"no!" or "stop!"  typically you say either of these words when we are trying to change your diaper, get you dressed or feed you....things you don't like to be bothered with.  you say it so assertively that i can't help but smile or laugh at the tough tone in your tiny voice.
-"eyes" and "nose" are your favorite body parts to point out on yourself or others.  i can't quite describe how you say those words but they have a special little ring to them that is all your own and adorable.
-"plapsss" is how you've always said chapstick and i love the way you say it so much i usually pretend i don't know what you are saying so you'll keep repeating yourself.  yesterday you actually said "chapchick" and i was a little sad you weren't saying it the usual way.  
(playing with/eating/destroying my favorite chapstick...tube 3 you've ruined i think)

-"plapess" (grapes)
-the other day i was pointing at your teeth and you said teeth then you said "eww groth" (gross) and i can only assume you said that because it is always such a fight when i brush your teeth and i tell you i have to do it to get the yucky stuff off your teeth.  
-i've always called you gorgi (short for gorgeous) and the other day you said it.
-"cozy" another recent word that you say really high pitched and sweetly
-"awful" (waffle)
-"shishies" (goldfish crackers)
-"uh see ____________ insert name....yaya, masK you always emphasize the k, buddhie, brandon" lately you ask to see the dogs, yaya, or brandon, almost constantly.  you also take my phone and pretend to call either yaya or brandon.  it is funny because you act pretty shy around brandon but you mention him often. 
-"booK" again with emphasis on the k.

these are just a few of the approximately 75 words or phrases you've been saying lately that i'm extra fond of.  i also can't forget to mention how your dance moves are getting increasingly impressive.  very often whether music is on or not your are stomping your feet around and showcasing your best dance moves.  
saying that i love you is an understatement.  i am completely in awe of the things you do and comprehend.  thank you for making me smile and laugh so often.  

xoxo, mama
