I love hearing language develop, and new words being added to Adelaide's repertoire each day (this week's favorite: 'ca-co-cone,' or telephone). I love hearing her play around with words in her mouth, rolling them around until they come out just as she'd like - "Poppy," "Momeeee," Zazie". She can't say "Calvin" the way she wants, so she calls him, "Boy". Love that. We've all taken to calling him "Boy" now (himself included), which pleases her to no end.
The Lady A and I are missing our Boy today, as he's off with Grammie and Grampie on his first overnight adventure sans parents. I've been talking (and talking) with him about what he can do if he gets sad, misses us, etc, which has only been met with puzzlement, and a matter of fact, "But Mom. Why would I miss you? I'm going to see you tomorrow."
Right. I guess I'm the one who'll be doing the missing.
