As anyone who knows this girl is aware, Anna has a full vocabulary. But there are still some sweet baby-ish words she uses that continue to hang on, such as:
naybe = maybe
pickstures = pictures
blinstures = blisters
busy = dizzy ("I'm getting sooooo busy!")
tellingscope = telescope (but really, how appropriate is tellingscope?)
When Anna stays really quiet in her room for a while, this is usually what she comes out looking like.
She went through a phase this spring where she wanted to make lists and notes. She'd say, "So. Let me write that down..." and proceed to scribble something on a sheet of paper. This is one of them. I had to jot it down word for word:
"Dear Sophie and Michelle. Do NOT take me outside when it is wet outside. Not ever, ever EVER take me outside when there is a storm in New York!"
(Explain THAT one, Doctor Phil)
"Mom. I'm trying to paint like a "gwown up" and your "stracting" me. If you see a mean witch and she "stracts" me, whack her, ok?"
On the way to her 3 year doctor's appointment, I gave her a good news/bad news scenario about shots. For months after that, she would say, "Mommy. I have good news and bad news" and proceed to make up nonsense. For instance, "Mommy. I have good news and bad news. The good news is, I want cereal for breakfast. The bad news is, I want bagels for breakfast."
What a silly girl!
