So, my daughter calls me Kiki. This morning I went up to get her from her bed, and she popped up, waved, and said, "Hi, Kiki." Sure, when she is sad or tired or mad, she wails, "Mama," but a casual greeting, and it's Kiki.
Where did she learn this? From her almost 2 year-old cousin. It's amazing what this almost one-year-old learns from that almost two-year-old. "Oh Boy!" Her laugh. There's no telling what else! When these two catch each other's eye--whether it is across the church building, at a wedding, at Jaydee's--Addison can hardly contain herself. She starts shaking, giggling, and clapping. She LOVES her Vanni. And Savannah loves her too.
So much that she even puts her in "Time Out." Seriously. Last Wednesday when Mom was keeping the girls, Savannah was lying on a pillow watching "Dora." Addison thought she'd lie next to Savannah on her pillow, but Savannah had other plans. She said, "No, Addy." When Addison's reply was to giggle and body slam herself back down on the pillow, Savannah said, "No Addy. Addy, TIME OUT!"
Oh, to be a fly on the wall...
