"boppy" and chapstick...

>> September 21, 2008

Yesterday morning Molly kept telling me "boppy".

She was being very intentional when she said it and was obviously saying something she thought I should understand. When she realized I wasn't getting it, she got off of my lap, went over to Bruce, pointed at his cup from Starbucks and said again, "boppy".

How do they learn things like coffee before they learn water, especially when water is what she drinks all the time and she hasn't yet had coffee?

She LOVES chapstick too. (She can't say that though).
While we walked the boys to school one day last week, she used up a whole stick.

She likes to put it on like she sees us put it on:

And then when it gets too low to put on the traditional way, dig it out with her fingers and put it on using her fingers:

And the tube is pretty good to suck on every now and then as well:

Can you see the chunks of chapstick on her face?

Once I cleaned the chunks off, she was very proud to show me her nicely protected, unchapped lips:

You should call her Molly Chapstick. Remember Susie? Molly is adorable with her lip protection. Very sweet. You got a beauty of a girl there!

Too cute about the coffee. I'm glad to see she has very hydrated lips :) I LOVE those blue eyes.

always good to keep those lips soft for mama's kissin'! ;) Oh and my friends little girl at one said her first word,"shoes!" She's obsessed with shoes already. They are in a world of trouble I think. ;)

Look at that face! Oh goodness. She'd melt me to puddles. Forget about it.

Mia did the same thing a few days ago. I walked into the livingroom and found her sitting on her bean bag calmly digging out the rest of the tube with her little fingers. It was a brand new tube and she ate the whole thing!!
