Esme and Ellerie have been learning all kinds of words and signs. Lately, their favorite words to say, and sign, over and over are "thank you." They, however, don't fully understand the meaning of the words quite yet. They say "thank you" when they bring you something. They say "thank you" when they sit down in the bath tub (after being told to because it's not safe to stand) or for a quick snack when their not strapped in their high chairs. They also say "thank you" when we ask them to say it because someone shared a toy, played with them, etc.
It's so much fun to watch, and hear, their language expanding every day...and I am thankful for the manner words they are learning (even if they don't quite have their use totally figured out).
And, because every post is better with a picture, here is a picture of my girls intently watching a squirrel eat the food from our new bird feeder.
