Emma has become quite verbose of late. A few of our favorites:

(Will starts cooing)
Emma: Will talk.
Me: What is he saying, Emma?
Emma: ABC's

(We gave Emma honey to help settle her cough when she was sick)
Emma: Emma sick want honey.
Me: Emma you're not sick anymore. You don't need honey.
Emma: cough....sick? Honey?

Emma: Back hurt, back hurt.
Me: Your back hurts?
(realizes Emma is doing her best Baloo impression)
Me: Itchy! It doesn't hurt, it just needs to be scratched
This kid has one itchy back...wonder where she got that from!

Me: Night Emma, love you.
Emma: Dream choo-choo.
Me: Yes you can dream about choo-choos.
Emma: Will dream choo-choo?
Me: Sure, he can dream about choo-choos too.

(Come into Emma's room and she has shed all her clothes, unsnaped her diaper and is holding it up (with the poop still inside thank goodness!) and there are 4 or 5 sweaters/jackets strewn about)
Emma: Cold want jacket.

Oh, this brings back a few memories! So glad the poop stayed put! I will add one more Emma-ism: We were playing with BA's stuffed bear, Slugger, who has the baseball outfit we put Emma in when she was 2 weeks old. Emma holds up the bear and his shirt and says,very deliberately, "Bear shirt on."

I've been saying it for years; two year-olds have a completely different system of logic from the rest of us. I'm sure it all makes perfect sense to her. :-)
