Faker

My Mom watched Edie today while I worked and she said that she talked for an HOUR in her crib before falling asleep for her nap.

I'm home alone with Edie tonight while Jeff goes to a concert with friends. I put her to bed at 8 and she's been talking quietly to herself for over an hour! I've been listening on the monitor downstairs, but just now walked upstairs to go read in bed (long day) and when Edie heard my footsteps on the stairs she started making exaggerated FAKE SNORING SOUNDS. For reals! We read a book called The Napping House at library story time last week and the librarian had everyone make the snoring sound whenever she said the word "snore" and I guess it stuck? Do you think she's really trying to trick me? That kid is a piece of work. Oh, and that temper tantrum void we were experiencing for so long? FILLED. Dear god has it filled. Help us all...

Edie keeps me laughing! I love this story. I swear, this girl is going to rule her school's dramatic productions for years and years - just like her mama did! :)

I didn't mention to you that her conversations were all with her doll, Olivia. And her tone of voice...she was totally imitating her mom! What a hoot.
