Sadie can still tell you what a bear says when it eats a fish (“ahhhhhhhh”) because of the bear eating a fish picture on the wall in the bathroom. But now she can also tell you what a bear says when it’s time for bed (from her new library book where the baby bear, Bartholomew, doesn’t want to go to bed). The baby bear in the book says “nah” over and over again at bedtime and now if you ask her what Bartholomew says she will say “nah nah nah” repeatedly in a quiet little voice. She actually gets shy when she’s saying actual “words.” Of course she’s excited enough about bears that she was bold enough to go up and give the bear in the picture a kiss at the playground.
Sometimes though, if you ask her the same question over and over again (i.e. “Sadie, can you show me where the giant excavator is?”) she’ll look at you like she feels a little bit sorry for you, because you’re so slow and you keep asking but you still don’t know which on is the giant excavator. Once in a while she’ll even raise one eyebrow while giving this particular look. It never fails to make Daddy laugh hysterically. I just can’t wait to hear what she has to say once she’s really talking!
