And yet she doesn't say things like "please" or "thank you" and we can barely get her to say "yes" even though we repeat these words tens of times a day to her every day.
That being said, tonight it only took seconds for us to get her to mimic the JE Skeets "ca-caw!" that he often says during The Basketball Jones show that Jeffrey listens to. We even recorded it. It's the first video of Ada that has hit over 50 views that weren't caused by my dad.
She picks up the strangest things. For the last two days, when she said good night to us, she has been saying, albeit in a vaguely slurred toddler voice, "Night night sweet butterflies." I think I've read that book to her, what, three times total? And those words are only in the title! So why this phrase? Must have caught her fancy.
Sure, she has read "I Want My Hat Back" a hundred times and she "reads" the book to herself now, but still, "sweet butterflies?" I mean, that's insane. She can barely say "mommy."
We're in trouble with this one...
