What’s His Name?


If you ask #1 what her toys’/stuffed animals’/babies’ names are….she’ll tell you.

But, she’ll give you a look like you are crazy.

Me: “#1, what is your bunny’s name?”

#1: looking very quizzical “Bunny!”

Me: “#1, what is your whale’s name?”

#1: again looking very quizzical, “Whale!”

Me: “#1, what is your baby’s name?”

#1: “Baby!”

I’m not sure what this says, but it cracks me up every time.

She is also starting to pretend with her animals and toys. It is adorable.

One night, she threw her bunny, then told him to be careful, gave him a kiss and told him all better! She is such a little mommy.

Yesterday, in the car, she shared her “cookies” with her bunny. She kept telling him to open his mouth.

I couldn’t break it to her that she was going to have a hard time getting him to open his mouth.

And, I think if I would have told her that, she certainly would have found a way to open his mouth. She is ever defiant and trying to prove me wrong.

Oh, trouble ahead.

Anyway, she has a collection of My Little Pony’s, and if the pony has rainbow on it she will name it Rainbow. If the pony had a star on it, its name was Star. So adorable!
