Sunday, October 4, 2009 - Update

I think I need a bigger lap.

So, I think there is a bit of jealousy going on between Olivia and Autumn because Olivia has wanted to sit on my lap a lot the last few days. I think the jealousy goes both ways. Every night after I put Olivia to sleep (and before I finish laundry or pay bills, clean the litter box, take a shower, have a little me time and a little time with my husband) I spend some time with Autumn. Now, if Olivia is late getting to bed, that cuts into my Autumn time and I think Autumn knows it. She waits for me in the living room and if I'm too long, she waits in the hallway and if I'm way too long, she goes into Olivia's room and just stares at me. Crazy girls. They do both love each other, though. We did, however, pick a name for our cat that Olivia just cannot say. It's pretty funny. . .our conversations go like this:

Me: Say Autumn

Olivia: Apple

Me: No, Autumn

Olivia: Apple

Me: Ahhhhh-tummmmm

Olivia: Ahhhh-puuuullll

So, Olivia calls her Apple and we really don't know why. Ryan and I thought about it and Olivia just cannot say words that have a t in the middle. She says poppy instead of potty, kiki instead of kitty, baba or bobble instead of bottle. Kinda interesting. Olivia runs around saying apple and I don't know whether she is wanting the cat or an actual apple. It's usually a toss-up.

I really enjoy hearing toddlers learn to talk. One of mine called rice krispies, hi bibbons for the longest time. No idea where that came from.
