Eva is soaking up words like a sponge, and it seems entirely random which words she becomes enamored of. Recent obsessions include "shower", "broom" and "black". Broom is because she has a DVD of "Room on the Broom" which she loves, whilst black is because we've been talking about colours a lot with her; but shower? That's kind of random, especially as she's never actually had a shower.
Rather more sweetly she has also added "hug", "soft" and "love" to her vocabulary, and she is using them more or less appropriately.
Whilst I was changing her nappy yesterday she gazed up at me with her beautiful big blue eyes and said "love... I love...". Somewhat sappily I thought we were having a bit of a moment, so I said "You love Mummy? Oh, I love you too sweetheart!" at which point Eva yelled "I LOVE BUM-BUM!" and grabbed her naked bottom.
It's true she does love her own bottom, and it is a lovely little thing when it's clean, but I can't help feeling a little bit put out. I suspect a certain young lady thinks she's a comedian. Already.
I am not looking forward to the teenage years...
