Criss-Cross Applesauce


“Yook at me, mommy.  I sitting criss-cross applesauce.”

(Yes, “look” is “yook.”  Those little “l’s” are tricky…and it’s pretty stinking cute in a two year old).

Criss Cross Applesauce

She’s sat like this before, but it’s the first time she actually named it and was so proud of herself for doing it.

So much so that she kept saying it while I was trying to take the picture.
