DD1 loves bird right now. LOVES. She answers people with "cheep cheep" and calls herself a Sophie-bird and gave herself a scraped face at preschool recently because she was trying to "fly" off the swings. Eeek!
She cracked me up tonight because she "hatched" out of her towel after her bath. Also, I've heard her on the potty saying to herself, "Oooop! Some eggs!" LOLOLOL.
The other day I asked her what she wanted for her birthday, and made a few suggestions, and she told me, "I want a toy bird." Which is pretty awesome because it's something she came up with on her own; I'm pretty sure she's never seen a toy bird (other than plush, which is not what she asked for), so she's asking for something that she's not even quite sure exists. Thank God she didn't ask for a real one, because I would've had a really hard time saying no!
She and DD2 were just filling the house up with little-girl giggles tonight, chasing each other and saying things to make each other laugh. I loved it.
ETA: Oh, this week, one of the times when Elsa was upset, Sophie asked her, "Elsa, why are you crying?" Which, one of the new goals for her IEP is assessing peers' emotional state and responding appropriately. And after DD2 had stopped, DD1 told her, "Elsa, I'm glad you're calm now." Yay!
