I love the way little kids mix up words sometimes.

Gabby insists on calling ketchup, "shake-up."

She also misuses "potty train" as though it were a noun. Like, "Me potty twain in de toiwet."

Obviously she has a way to go on her linguistic skills--the use of 'I', and the sounds of 'l 'and 'r' for instance, but a big part of me will miss hearing, "Me wuv me widdiw wam." It represents a time when she loves and trusts me wholeheartedly.

I love this age. She is full of personality, but hasn't quite gotten an attitude. She is a sweet Mama's girl. She adores her baby brother and looks up to her big sister. I love that all fancy clothes are "wedding dresses" and that she has the sweetest, most contagious giggle. I love my Gabby-girl.
