Today, after eating lunch in the food court at Home Plus, I was holding Sophie on my lap and loving on her. After she looked up and gave me a kiss, she said "I love you." It was pretty great. It was the first time she has ever said "I love you" unprompted.
This evening at bath time, Sophie was playing with a blue submarine toy. She thought it was an airplane, so I explained how it was a special boat that goes under the water. Then I started singing a particularly rousing version of "Yellow Submarine." When I finished, Sophie looked at me with concern and said "Submarine blue, Mama." It's very hard to explain things to your poor, ignorant mother sometimes.
