Cora tonight:  "I love God.  I think she [I love she calls God a she] is beautiful. I love her so much I'd love to go live with her!"

Ummmm ok, but can that wait a while?  Like a looooong while please!?
Number two from Cora tonight: Milly bonked her mouth tonight and it bled a fair bit. Cora asked to say her prayer tonight with no one watching her. But we could hear it "God, please let Milly's lip feel better by tomorrow because she's my sister and I love her."
And finally one from Milly.  My mom and I got ourselves in a bit of pickle as Cora overheard us telling Milly she was soooo cute.  Cora asked what SHE was. I told her she was beautiful.  My mom added that big girls are beautiful and little girls are cute.  Milly looked at my mom and said "MeMe!  I beautiful TOO!"  You go girlfriend.

Pick you up! = pick me up
Mo milk pees (this child is a milkaholic)
I ok!  (every time she falls - which is often)
Hi-YA (with accompanying kung fu cjop)
I help you? = she needs help, stemming from me saying "Can I help you?"
--- see also:  I need my help!

And the ever-present:  I DO IT!

Well, I don't have to worry whether Milly can adequately convey her feelings. During a bit of a whine, I tried to comfort her by saying "Milly, it's ok!" to which she scowled and said "No! It NOT ok!"
