(I snuck in to check on her one night, and found a sleeping princess...)
"Kids think with their brains cracked wide open;
 becoming an adult, I've decided, is only a slow sewing shut." — Jodi Picoult

Millie is...full of it. I want to take a recorder around the house with me to capture all the crazy things she says- things I don't even know where she gets them- but because it's all but impossible to capture them on cue, I jotted down a few of the most recent ones to share...

-"My bellybutton is stuck on my belly. There's a baby growing in there. I ate lots of pizza."

-"That's a lotion!" (seeing a picture of the ocean)

-I pretended to make a pouty face. She told me, "Don't be sad. You're cute!"

-She was pushing around the bathroom rug, and I told her to stop. 
She moved it towards me and said, "Here, sweetheart."

-She saw a couple kiss on TV and said, "That's gross."
I asked,"But is it gross when Mommy and Daddy kiss?"
She said,"Yeah, that's gross."

-I looked at her and said, "Millie, you're my friend."
She sat there with a unconvinced look on her face, and said, "I suppose..."

-"Hi! Whatcha doing?" (to everyone in every store every where, but to a lady roughly 10 years older than me in this particular story)
Lady: "I'm shopping. What are you doing?"
Millie: "I shopping at Target!"
Millie looks at the lady for a second, points, and says, "A mustache?"
(I quickly wheeled the cart away.)

Putting on the purple bathrobe her size that we found at Goodwill, 
she crawled into bed whispering, "Like mama? Like a princess!"

After my dad gave her two cookies and began to eat one of his own, she said, "Hey! Share!"

-My shirt was up so she could try to feel the baby kick.
She said, "Mama, close your shirt down. The baby's sticking out."
(She also informed me the baby would be coming out of my bellybutton.) 

-Her new favorite book is called Gertie and Gossie...she calls it Gertie and Gassy.

And after I laughed hysterically at one of her silly phrases, she lifted up her hands and sighed, "Where does it come from?" 

My thought exactly!

I got the SERIOUS giggles over the mustache!!! I'm still laughing!!

Isn't it funny how you're shy and quiet, but you have such a talkative and (presumably) outgoing little girl? I love how that works.
