Pickle has been cracking me up lately. She is having a language explosion and the sentences that she's been putting together lately both impress me and make me laugh simultaneously.
For the past couple of mornings she starts screaming for me the second she wakes up. Screaming. At the top of her lungs "MOOOOMEEEEEE!!!!" Over and over plus just plain screaming.
Yesterday I scrambled to get in there--rushing to throw some clothes on and racing to her room. The second I opened the door, the screaming stopped and she very cheerfully said "Hi Mommy!"
"Why were you screaming like that?" I asked her.
She casually shrugged her shoulders and said "But--I need you so much."
This morning the same crazed screaming occurred, followed my my mad rush to get in there, followed by her cheerful greeting.
Again I asked "Why are you screaming like that."
She shrugged again and said "But--my tiny little dog is on the floor."
She is also having some diaper issues--I think she might be getting close to potty training because the second there is even a slightly wet diaper she freaks out and wants it changed. I think I went through a whole pack of diapers today!
A little background--when she was first learning to talk, she (for reasons I don't understand or remember) started calling her diapers "beets." So when she wants her diaper changed she says "Change my beets" or change my beetsies."
Today she asked for her millionth diaper change and I told her that I had just changed her diaper and that it was fine and she said "But--I have really, really beetsies."
And finally, the other day she was playing in the basement and started desperately calling for help--like life or death-type screaming. I rushed over and found her trying to climb the stairs with Meow-Meow, some kind of caterpillar and what looks to be a skunk. "But--carry Meow-Meow," she demanded.
What a drama queen!!
