Sadie: "I want to see the new baby in your tummy."
Me: "Remember the new baby isn't in my tummy anymore."
Sadie: "The new baby in your tummy!"
Me: "The new baby is..."
Sadie: "In heaven with Jesus!"
Sadie: "We can have another baby!"
Sadie: "And the new baby will be Mary!"
Sadie: (a long pause) "Patrick!"
She's awfully determined about this whole family of little sisters thing. She also has taken a sudden interest in the American Girl Baby doll that Nani gave her a couple of Christmas' ago and fell asleep cradling it in her arms.
Then there was the another conversation tonight when Sadie got out a Berenstain Bears book. She immediately turned to the story where Brother Bear outgrows his bed and Sister Bear is born. Towards the end there's a page where the tiny baby Sister Bear bops her brother in the nose with her fist. Sadie examined the page and then pointed to the picture:
Sadie: "What is the baby girl bear doing to her bear?"
Me: "She bopped him on the nose."
Sadie: "That's not nice."
Me: "No it's not. But sometimes little babies don't know that something that they're doing isn't nice." (we've talked about that a lot with Mae Bae) "Like tonight when Mae Bae threw her car and it hit you in the head."
Sadie: "And you told her no!"
Sadie: "And then you said 'Margaret Rosella!'"
Sadie doesn't miss much these days...
