Adelie had her 18 month shots this past week. While discussing them at dinner that night, Adelie came up with a new, funny game. She was talking about her nurse Amy giving her shot. She said, "Amy. Shot." We asked Adelie if she cried, to which Adelie replied "No." (Partly true. She only cried for about 10 seconds before she was distracted by the fun sticker that nurse Amy gave her.) Then Adelie asked, "Amy. Cry?" And we asked, "Did nurse Amy cry?" With a big smile, Adelie responded, "No." You can imagine where it went from there...
Adelie: "Sissy. Cry?"
Us: "Did sissy cry?"
Adelie: "Mommy. Cry?"
Us: "Did Mommy cry?"
Then she went through Daddy, Grammie, Grandpa, Uma, Papa, and then back to nurse Amy. We were all laughing, partly at how pleased Adelie was with her funny new game and partly at how hard Staley was giggling about it. Even while we were cleaning up after dinner, Staley and Adelie continued to play their new game. It makes me smile to see Adelie expressing herself more and more, and to see Staley clearly enjoying it.
