As we were preparing for the daily mud bath I was slathering Bitty with sunscreen, and I got a little sad because I suddenly remembered that the last time I was doing this she was requesting "scumskeen" and now she wants just regular old sun screen. This does not mean, however, that she has abandoned all cute baby talk and funny ideas, because also today she hopped out from behind something and shouted "yoda lady whoooo!" I thought that was rather endearing. Also, we had Troy's parents over for dinner. As Bitty she sat on her grandmother's knee and looked into her eyes she said, "Hey, you've got wishes in your eyes!" I was able to explain, first of all that she didn't think Grandma had a witch in her eye, just a wish. The last time she said this it took some figuring out, but it turns out that when she sees the little spark of reflected light in someone's eye, she thinks it looks like the flame on the top of a birthday candle, thus making it a "wish." I'll tell you, the first time she said that a few weeks ago it took some serious figuring to understand what she meant. I just love that - we all have twinkling wishes in our eyes.
