Lexi chimes in after a momentary pause: “I go to Orlando.” (cue in mad laughter from Andrew and I)

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?
Me: What was it like? Was it warm and nice?
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?
– 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)
