Uncle Ethan doing?
Often the question is about someone who is right there with her.
Staley: "Mommy doing?"
Me: "Just sitting here, watching you eat your lunch."
And it generally isn't an isolated question. She may need to ask what Mommy is doing or Daddy is doing 4 or 5 times in a row before she is satisfied with the answer. But if the question is turned back to her, she generally has an answer for it. Driving back from the beach for lunch today, this was part of our conversation.
Staley: "Liam doing?"
Me: "I don't know. What do you think Liam is doing?"
Me: "Maybe so. What do you think Liam is eating for lunch?"
Staley: "Eating pork chops."
Granted, we haven't had pork chops since we've been on vacation. We probably haven't had pork chops in several weeks. But apparently Staley thought Aunt Melissa had whipped up some lunchtime pork chops for Liam to enjoy.
It's so fun to watch how Staley's mind works. I love how she is trying to figure out her world. Staley is bright and inquisitive and so much fun to be around. Staley doing?
Filling my life with joy. That's what Staley is doing.
