When Lilah was 2 1/2 she used the word probably. It was funny, because she used it often and in the correct manner and most 2 years old don’t use words like that very often.
Last night at dinner Eden started using the word probably, like three time in a row. It was too cute. (She is around the same age as Lilah was.)

Then Jon said how Lilah mimic something I said. I had used “like she really wants to be eaten” while Jon was playfully pretending to eat Lilah. Then later Lilah said something with “like” in the sentence and it reminded Jon of me.
At least she wasn’t being the mommy. I have to remind both girls they’re not the mommy.

Another fun thing. The girls were being babysat while I was at the temple and Lilah started telling them about gravity. “Gravity holds us to the earth otherwise we’d be floating around and it would be silly.” My summary of what the family told me an what I sometimes hear from Lilah myself.
Kids are funny. I like mine.

One Response to “Traits”

    For the record, I had eaten Lilah’s half of a hot dog (I didn’t know it was hers) so I apologized and pretended to be so hungry that I was going to eat Lilah. Lacey said something like “Lilah’s like ‘Whatever Dad. You ate my hot dog.'” A few moments later, Lilah said something like “Yeah, I was like ‘I want my hot dog.'” I don’t remember the exact words, but it was the first time I heard her use the word “like” in the valley girls sense. Everybody uses “like” like a valley girl these days without thinking twice. It’s interesting to see the language evolve within my own lifetime.
