"Eliza shut door"

Dear Pea,
In the past two weeks, you have gone from not saying your name at all to mastering it top now referring to yourself in the third person. You have always been a big narrator of your surroundings or activity around you but now you're narrating your actions, too. "Mama pushing Eliza stroller! Whee!" "Eliza in bath! Eliza dump agua!" I'm not sure when or why the 3rd person comes out, you still will say "I" sometimes, too. Anyway, as evidenced by Elmo, this 3rd personal referral is just another reminder of how much a toddler you are.

Dear Pea,
Yesterday you said "I love you" for the first time. It was lovely, but it didn't make my heart flutter and swoon the way my friends describe their first "I love you." You are a parrot, what can I expect?

But today, we bought you a new pair of shoes and as we were leaving, you declared "I love these shoes!". That, Sweet Pea, made me melt. A) You are so like my mom! B) You actually do know the meaning of love
