Love Letters

Eden was "writing letters" on Nana's iPhone.

(pushing random keys)

"Dear Nana,
I love you.
I know because I feel it
deep within my heart.
I also love mermaids.
Love, Eden"

Leila's Colors

Leila doesn't know how to say many words yet. But there is one color that she can recognize and say.


Classical Music

Eden and I listened to some classical music the other day and I was talking to her about the different instruments and composers. A few days later we drew some pictures of instruments (we looked them up online). She was really into learning the few instruments we talked about.

A week or so later Eden and I went to a neighbor's house to return something. I talked while she played with toys.

Eden: "Mom! Look what I found?!"
(I look over and she's holding a recorder)
Eden: "Its an OBOE!"

She was thrilled.

During dinner Eden pointed at a zucchini....

Eden: "What's that?"
Mom: "Its a zucchini."
(Gives a skeptical look at the zucchini.)
Mom: "It's deliciousness!"
Eden: "No. It's sadness."

When I Grow Up

Eden's been really into pedestrian signs lately. She always looks out for them and tells me that I need to watch for pedestrians and stop for them.

The other day she told me...

"Mom, when I grow up, I want to be a pedestrian."

I had to explain that she's already a pedestrian.
