As most of you know, Lydia is seldom without her special stuffed dog, Pup. She really loves that animal and sometimes I'm a bit jealous as he gets loved on more than Ben and I do! This week I caught her "pretending" (or at least I think she was pretending) with Pup. She was eating some goldfish and decided to share. She carefully placed a fish on Pup's stitched mouth and waited a couple of seconds before she started saying, "Mmmm, mmmm." Then she snatched the cracker back and popped it in her own mouth with a giggle. I have also seen her attempt to share a drink with Pup. And if you read Liz's blog I left a comment there about how she reacted to seeing Kate's little stuffed dog. It was pretty funny.
Lydia hasn't quite grasped the phrase, "I love you." We tell her that a lot but her response is always, "night night" matter what time of day or night it might be.
Another cute thing she does is related to Auntie Liz and baby Kate. When we ask her, "Where is baby Kate?" or "Where is Auntie Liz's baby?" she will usually toddle over and pat Liz's belly. Occasionally we even convince her to give baby Kate some loves...and she gives Liz's belly a hug.
It seems that she learns something new everyday. It has been so much fun to watch her grow and learn.
