I find Raeca’s little word/sentence mix ups to be the cutest thing ever. A few weeks ago at supper we were going over words she used to (or still does) say incorrectly; raccoon = rack-ca-coon, elephant = ef-a-lant, and by the time we got to helicopter she was onto us. She thought for a minute and then said “airplane”. Smart girl.
I seem to think I will always remember these cute things but I already have forgotten a few of them. I got this idea off of Pinterest and had to photograph Raeca with a couple of her most recent words/sentences. I hope to continue to do this in the future and include them in our yearly photo books (I’m starting my 2013 book right away!)
Some of my favorite phrases from the last month have been:
- Me: “How old do you think Mommy is?” Rae: “I don’t know, maybe 14?”
- “Can you put my baby in my shirt like Baby Jesus’ Mommy?”
- “I saw a little fly. You have to get him with the sply splotter”
- “I want a muffcake”
- “I’m watching Store Tory. And it have Buzz.”
I found a clipart speech bubble I liked and printed it off onto an 8.5×11 piece of paper, cut it down to 8×10 and stuck it in a frame. If there is anyone else that wants to use this speech bubble you can download here. You can always edit it in Photoshop and change the background color from grey to anything you want, I just wanted to have something neutral.
I like having these visual reminders of the funny things she says, and know they will be great to look back on in the years to come.
