The other day I was scouting Tredup.com for some new clothes for Lil and I asked her what she thought of a winter dress. She looked at it for a few moments and took a few steps back from my computer and said “Look Mama, I’m not big enough for that” and when I turned around she was holding her arms out and showing me that’s how big she was. I laughed and said ‘You’re probably right, it’s way too big for you’, even though it was a 4T and would only be a little big right now.
Later I saw a cute winter top and asked her for her opinion again and she thought about it and took a few steps back and this time with her arms stretched wide said “yeah, that will fit perfectly. Get that one Mama”.
I didn’t end up ordering anything right then, but I loved Lily’s responses to my questions. She’s had a good grasp of language for a long while now and we have had millions of conversations, but lately the conversations are more…real. More complete. More interesting and fun. My girl is growing up so fast and it’s a pleasure to be a witness to it.
