Bawbees

Photobucket

A few days ago, it was warm enough for Millie to go swimming. And swimming is always more fun when you add a little bubble bath to the water.

She has always called them "baw-bees". And I loved it. It was one of those melt-my-heart words.

But then suddenly, they are just "bubbles". She says it clearly and with certainty, as if she's never said anything else. I say, "baw-bees?" and she corrects me. "Bubbles."

It's funny how these little moments inch her towards little girl and away from baby. If I think about it too long, my heart breaks a little.

But she always makes up for it with new things, exciting triumphs, and smiles.

So cute and what a great idea to add bubbles to the pool! I can't wait for L's cast to come off, so we can once again have pool time and beach trips!
