Kissing cars

Little Elvis did not nap on Monday. It was not a fun day. But he was a really good boy Tuesday afternoon and evening. He's also been a really good boy today. So, I will take it.

He's chattering a lot more, although I often have no idea what he's saying. I try just nodding and saying, "Yes."

Little Elvis is catching on, and that will not work anymore. I'm frustrating him with my confusion, but I'm sure I will eventually figure out what he's trying to tell me about his cars and trucks.

Speaking of his cars, he's starting to role-play and use his imagination with them. For a while now, he has fed them, given them something to drink, pumped gas for them, kissed them, hugged them.

Yesterday, while I was cooking, he put three cars on the counter beside me. His newer stuffed Lightning, a monster truck, and little blue 4X4 pick up truck.

He was chattering away while I tried to make the best of a homemade pie crust (um, the best wasn't very good. It's crunchy like pretzels. Oh well.)
He kept saying, "Daddy, Mama, Little Elvis," and I looked up. He was calling the biggest car, "Daddy." The medium-sized car, "Mama." And the smallest car, "Little Elvis."

Once he had my attention, he started making the cars kiss and cuddle.

How sweet! I so love this age! And I have trouble understanding Esme still, though it's getting better. Fortunately she doesn't get too frustrated by my lack of understanding. I try having her show me what she means, and sometimes she does...

AWWWWWWWW! So precious. I love the baby jabber. It's so hard to get on video tape, but I don't ever want to forget it. :)

So cute. Toddler-speak is challenging to understand, but I have a feeling it's only a matter of time until you know exactly what he's talking about.

that is SOO cute what he did with the cars!!! I know, it's hard to know what they are saying sometimes! And Svara does NOT let it go if she knows I don't know what she is saying.
