When reading about a heart and it pumping blood:

Lexi: “Pump like the one daddy used to blow up dinosaur pool!”
Waking up: “I want to dress up Minnie!”
Me: You want to play dress up with the Minnie doll?
Lexi: That’s a great idea, Momma! Come on, follow me!
While playing school:
“Um, Mister Mama Teacher, can you read me a book and open a snack?”

Lexi: “Boobie is all sandy because someone put sand in the boobie.”

Me: Who did that?
Lexi: Grandma? Noooo!!!! Caden? (her friend)
Daddy: “But first give me a kissy. Give me a kiss and I’ll turn the light on in the bathroom
Lexi: “Daddy  you get a kiss on the foot.”

After putting jewelry on and looking in the mirror:

“Mama and Yaya look so cute (pronounced as [koot] together.”
Playing pretend:
Mama I want you to be a tooth fairy, holding two books and I’ll be Sister bopping for apples.” (derived from Berenstein Bear’s Tooth Fairy book)

Me: “Does anything hurt sweetie ?”

Lexi: “Right here!”  points at her hip
Me: “Your hip hurts?”
Me: “Sweetie, does you hip hurt?”
Lexi: “Hip…  hip hurray.”
Lexi: “What’s that sound?”

Daddy: “It’s probably the whistling sound the toilet is making.”

Lexi: “Mama turn of the whistling toilet please?”

Daddy while cooking eggs: “I’m burning your eggies”

Lexi: “Don’t worry daddy. Just get eggies cooled down before Yaya eats eggies. And then Yaya will eat all those eggies. Then daddy brush her teeth before Yaya goes to sleep.”

Lexi to me while holding my hands:
“We are holding hands. You’re my pretty girl!”


With  6 year old girls she met at the playground.
Girls bragging while climbing around the equipment with Lexi:
-“I paint at school”
-“I have drawings from school”
-“My teacher says I am the best student”
Lexi chimes in after a momentary pause: “I go to Orlando.” (cue in mad laughter from Andrew and I)


Me: You’re a princess.
Lexi pouting : No I’m not a princess.
Me: But you are.
Lexi still pouting : I’m just Yaya. I’m not a princess. I’m just Yaya.



A few days later.
Me: You’re beautiful.
Lexi with her head down: No, I am not beautiful.
Me: You’re gorgeous silly.
Lexi: No I’m not. I’m just Yaya.
(still wondering where she got that from)


With a pained expression while nursing to sleep at bedtime:
“Mamaaaaaaa, is it morning yet?”


While nursing, her foot is touching books. She unlatches, looks and then sings:
“Books never bothered me anyways!” (frozen fans will get it)


Me: You, cutie-patootie.
Lexi: “You’re a cutie kakootie too, mama”
Me: Thanks? I guess?


While floating in a bathtub breastfeeding ( which is the closest you can get to womb environment, so I had a question in my head for Lexi)
Me:  Lexi, do you remember being in my belly?
Lexi: Mhm
Me: What was it like? Was it warm and nice?
Lexi: Mhm
Me: What were you doing there?
Lexi, unlatches: Hanging! ( I swear totally unprompted, we never used that word or talked about it in that context, so that kind of blew my mind)


Later that week, again while taking a bath and breastfeeding:
-“So you liked being in mommy’s belly?
– Mhm
So what was there?
Some food. Pause, then slowly: Peas, corn, eggies, water, milk.
Really? What else?
(without hesitation) Toys. 


While nursing to sleep:
“Mama can you rub me? Can you make me polka dots?” (referring to goose bumps)


After each night and nap:
“Come on follow me, you will see what I mean! We will see inside you, inside daddy and inside me too! Come on, mama, follow me!” ( derived from Cat in the Hat learning library books)

    Celia does the “no, I’m just Cece” thing too.
    Also that “hip… Hip hurray!” thing made me lol.

    Elena, you’ve mentioned a while ago that you were raising Lexi bilingual… You haven’t posted about it in a while: did it work for your family or did you just stick with English?

      Actually, it has improved greatly since the last time someone asked me how it’s going. It’s going good enough that I will be writing a post soon, because I finally have something to write about.
      It’s not stellar because Russian doesn’t come to me naturally, but it’s definitely improving greatly.
      So yes, we are still bilingual and at this point I don’t think that will ever change ( not that I haven’t thought about quitting until recently)

    Ha yeah. I’ll ask if she’s “ready Freddie” or “ready baby cakes” and she’ll say “mommy. I’m not Freddie. I’m not baby cakes. I’m just Cece”.

    yes, it would be great to hear how you’re dealing with it – we’re raising our daughter trilingual and I would love to exchange some tips

    Hi, just wanted to say I’m so glad the comments (along with more frequent posts are back). Now you just have to put up with the inevitable haters/trolls again! (Not that there are any on this post , just that they’ll probably show up at some point)

    Love reading, as always.

    Lexi is such a riot! My daughter is just a few months younger than Lexi, so her language development is getting to be similar to Lexi’s. I’m loving this age!
