Selena's Sayings and Doings

In the morning when we get up, I usually hurry downstairs to make coffee for Mr.S 's travel mug. Lena was up as well this particular morning, and as we reached the bottom of the stairs she struggled to break free.

"Det Down, Det Down," she pleaded.

I put her down and went into the kitchen to measure out the coffee. I heard her bustling and banging about in her play kitchen, but I didn't give it another thought.

A few minutes later, she appeared, triumphant. She handed me her pretend kitchen aid (it does resemble a coffee pot!) and a plastic cup.

As I took it from her, she decisively said, "Daddy."

So Daddy got two cups of coffee that morning, and her pretend pot has been next to the real one ever since. Sometimes we make coffee in her pretend pot just for fun!

She is really going to be a helper---I can tell! She's going to spend a LOT of time at Nanna's house when she gets really good at it! I know that little coffee pot!

What??? I thought for sure I'd commented on this.

Anyway, this made me smile! That little girl is so sweet! She is growing up so fast, though.

Hugs to you and Lena!
