I've had a surprising number of people ask me if Daisy is "part Asian." I'm laughing as I type this but, it's true! I know it's her eyes and I see it too but, it still cracks me up when people ask that question in front of me and my hubby when neither of us look Asian (or do we?). Funny, I've always said that if God ever opened the door for us to adopt that I would like to adopt from China. Perhaps there is some sort of connection there? hehe. So, the other night as Daisy and I were snuggling up on the couch together I looked at her precious little face and asked, "Daisy, are you my sweet Asian baby?"
To which she replied in her adorable 2 year old voice, "No mom I not uh Ancient Bewwy (like berry but, with w's). I Daisy!"
I died. To stinking cute!
Some of her other cute words:
Strawberry is: Straw-buh-days (I can't bring myself to correct her because I get such a kick out of this one!)
Banana is: Buh-mean-uh
Hello Kitty is: Hewwo Titty (hehe)
Can you hold me: Mom, I hold you?
She's also had her first couple of bad dreams in the past few weeks. This morning she came into my room a little earlier than usual and I hadn't even heard her wake up on the monitor. She must have slipped out of her bed very quietly which is not her usual style. She walked into my dark room with 3 blankets and her pearl necklace in hand (she puts it on every morning) and a scared look on her face. She proceed to try and explain to me in a two year old vocabulary that she had a dream about a scary vacuum and mommy was inside? That's all I got out of it but, it sounded pretty scary to me! I wouldn't want to be stuck inside a vacuum...how terrifying...and loud...and dirty..ew. I consoled her and promised her it was just a dream and that mommy was okay and we snuggled. All better.
I love my little girl to pieces.
