So my little Kyleigh has some pretty darned cute words and phrases, if I do say so myself. Because I know that I will forget them, I want to write them down while I'm thinking about it.

She'll walk around making an animal noise, say a "neigh" or something, and then ask herself, "Are you being a horse?"

She has a very good memory and can usually repeat things she hears on TV. She watches the little kid shows on Nickelodeon or Disney, and I'll hear her say little catch phrases from them. Sometimes she'll say, "Do you hear that? It sounds like an animal in trouble!" (from Diego) or "It's ok, Boots." (from Dora) or "I have an idea!" (Imagination Movers). It's really cute. I'm not sure that she knows 100% what she's saying, but it's still pretty cute!

She pronounces "pajamas" as "pajamanamas". I'm pretty sure that's my favorite of all!!

When she's feeling particularly sweet, she'll come up and give us a kiss and say, "Love you so much!" If that doesn't melt your heart, I don't know what would!!

When we're driving around in the car, I'll sometimes ask her what Maezie is doing so I can find out if Maezie is sleeping or not. Since Kyleigh is front-facing, I can see her in my little kid-finder rearview mirror, but Maezie is still rear-facing so I can't see her. So, I ask Kyleigh, "What's Maezie doing?" Her usual answers are, "She's sleeping." or "She's happy" (which means she's awake and smiling) or once she even said, "She's snoring" because I guess Maezie was asleep and breathing really heavily. But then today I asked her, "Kyleigh, what's Maezie doing?" And I watched in my rearview as Kyleigh looked at Maezie thoughtfully and then said, "Is she being a giraffe?" Which CRACKS ME UP!! When we taught Kyleigh what a giraffe says, we would stick our tongue out really far. Maezie has a habit of falling asleep with her tongue partially hanging out of her mouth. She "sucks" on her tongue (mimicking nursing) while she's sleeping. So when Kyleigh said that Maezie was being a giraffe, it meant that she was asleep with the tip of her tongue hanging out of her mouth. Hilarious!!

I know there's more things to add to this post, I just can't think of them right now. So I'll add them later. :)

That's so sweet. I love pajamanamas.
I'll have to write down some Zoeisms, cause you're so right we do end up forgetting.
"is she being a giraffe?" toooo sweet.
