Conversations with Kate

Kate is extremely verbal and knows so many more words than we probably even realize.  It's still fun to  hear her mispronounce words, and call things by the wrong names.  Here are some of our favorites:
  • Boo-Boo-Daid (Bandaid)
  • Eph-a-lent (Elephant)
  • Bubba-band (Rubber Band)
  • Acorns (for Carrots)
  • Crosty the Mo-man (Frosty the Snowman)
  • Ta-wah-wah (Tiara)

Kate and I were playing with one of her toys- a stackable set of bowls (the kind where each bowl is consecutively smaller).  I was trying to explain to her the concept of BIG and small.  I'd pick out two bowls and ask her which was the bigger one.  She got it right about 50% of the time, so I know it was pretty much just guesses on her part.  So, to try to explain it to her a little differently, I picked up two bowls (one big and one small) and said "Kate, if we were going to fill these up with ice cream, you would want the BIG bowl. Which bowl would you want?"  She immediately picked up the big bowl, stood up, said "This one! Let's go!", and walked over to the freezer.  Mom fail on that one. :)

After a 4+ hour car ride that Kate did AWESOME on, I was telling her how proud I was of her and that she did a great job of riding in the car for so long.  Her response?  "Thanks.  Good driving, Mommy!"  Ha! Gotta love the sweetness of a 2 year old.

My mom, Kristi, Kate and I were at a McDonalds drive-through for breakfast one morning. I was driving, so I got to be in charge of ordering.  My mom told me she wanted a Bacon, Egg and Cheese McMuffin, Kristi wanted the biscuit, I said I was definitely getting hash browns, etc.  From the back seat, I hear Kate pipe in with her order.... "I want ice cream!"

We've been teaching Kate the books of the Bible.  This is what she sounds like right now
"Matthew...Mark...Luke...Papa Johns!"

Kate HATES wearing socks. Seriously hates them.  She asks all the time to wear her "flops", and can't stand that I tell her no because it is only 40 degrees outside.  Lately, when I've told her that it's time to put her socks and shoes on she responds with "No. No socks. Just toenails." 

One evening Kate got in trouble from Kevin.  He scolded her and then took her to change her diaper.  When she got back I asked her if she had gotten in trouble.  She said "yeah...." so I asked her what she had done.  She was either embarrassed or ashamed of what she had done so her response to me was "Something bad."

Kevin got her up from her nap one day and I heard them walking down the hallway toward the living room.  All of a sudden, I saw Kate put her hands on either side of Kevin's face and she yelled out "I need coffee!"  The funny thing is, we don't let her HAVE coffee (and we don't even have a coffee maker at our house)!
