Charlotte is a hoot these days. I’ve been keeping a running document in the Notes in my phone with things that she says and even though they go back a while I want to document them here for posterity!
Charlotte pronounces the word “turquoise” as “turk-noise”

(I’m bringing clothes into the laundry room to put in the washing machine)
C: Mommy, can I please help with the laundry?
C: (while stuffing clothes in) I can’t believe all these clothes are going to fit!
(C leaves the laundry room and then walks back in)
C: Thank you Mommy for letting me help you with the laundry!
(Charlotte gets to play apps on the iPad while I nurse James. When she accidentally touches something on the app and it goes to anther screen she always brings it to me and says….)
C: My app’s not ‘specting me! (i.e. my app’s not respecting me)
Some fun pronunciations:
“Camelope” = cantaloupe
“Mama Neen” = Mama Dean (KayKay’s Mom)
“Somekin” = something
Me: Charlotte, you’re the best little girl in the whole wide world! (I’ve told her this for a while)
C: Mommy, you know what? I think….you’re the best Mommy!

(I’m getting Charlotte up from her nap, already knowing the answer to the question is NO!)
Me: Did you go to sleep?
C: Ummmm….. Not ex-actly!

“Pi-nano” = piano
“Kekater” = Decatur
Charlotte also told us that she had a wedding and a party during nap time!
Since we’ve moved in to Mom and Dad’s she’s started telling Papa that he can’t mess with her. Whenever he starts teasing her she points her finger at him and shakes it and says, “Papa, don’t mess with me! Did you learn your lesson??”
James is crawling/walking everywhere now and sometimes when she looks up for him and doesn’t see him she yells out, “Help! I’ve lost my bro-fer!”
C loves the phrase “I’m ALL about….” Some instances that she’s used it:
“I’m ALL about Alabama football!”
“I’m ALL about the sparkly cheerleaders!”

C exclaimed “No way!” every time she opened a present!

C was singing the chorus to “My Soul Magnifies the Lord” by Chris Tomlin while she was getting ready for bed on Christmas Eve (there was no music playing, but it had been on in the car on our way home).
