Magpie finds noses, and all they do, fascinating. For a couple of months, she has broken into laughter anytime anyone blows their nose. She thinks it is hilarious. Don't know why, but nose blowing is mighty humerous to an 16-18 month old. Due to this, in our household, we tend to blow our noses a lot, and resultingly, there is a lot of laughter.
More recently, Magpie began using the word "achoo!" whenever someone sneezes. Loves the word. Loves to say it. And it's really really cute the way she says it in her little Muppet voice.
Fast forward to last night as I was serving dinner. I was in the kitchen and she was sitting at her high chair in the dining area watching me. Suddenly, suprisingly and out of nowhere, I sneezed.
And then a little voice, also surprising and out of nowhere said quite clearly,
My heart melted. How did she learn this phrase? I have no idea, but it was adorable. And so appropriate to the moment. And it was again one of those reminders that my little baby girl is such a fully formed person who is now able to tell us some of the things she's been observing and thinking for some time.
