Does Soft Soap come in chocolate flavor?

Ellie is 13 months old. My how time flies! She has teethed sooner, crawled sooner, climbed sooner, & walked sooner than her brothers. And she talks a lot more than they did. That may be because she is a girl. And her mother's daughter. = )

Currently her list of words include: ma!, mama, da!, dadadada, buh (brother), YUM!, baa (as in sheep), and last but not least uh.

I hear "uh" the most. It has many meanings. "Uuuuhhhh!!!!!" That means "he's bothering me, make him stop." I hear that one a lot! Then there's "UUUhhh!" "That means I've climbed up on something and now I can't get off. I'm stuck. Come get me."

I heard that last one a couple of mornings ago. The boys and I were in their room changing their clothes and making their beds. It finally sunk into my conscious mind that Ellie was calling her "stuck" word. Naturally I went in search of where she'd gotten herself this time.

I found Ellie sitting on a toilet. I didn't even know she could climb up there without a stool. Thankfully the lid was down! Anyway, there she sat with the hand soap bottle between both hands and the spout in her mouth. When she saw me a grin grew from ear-to-ear and she proudly announced, "YUM!"

I guess anything tastes good after eating crumbs and dried up food off the floor.

Ellie can't be totally your daughter if she's ready to eat just anything, can she? Wonder where she gets that trait?? Sounds like she'd make a good missionary. ("Lord, I'll get it down if you'll keep it down.")
