Yesterday, when Rick came home from a long day at work, the kids both ran to him with a very enthusiastic "Daddy! Daddy!" After a big hug, Rick asked Riley, "How are you?"- to which she replied, "I two!"... It took us only a second to realize she thought he'd asked, "How old are you?" Can you tell one of the things we've been trying to teach her lately??
Tonight, Riley and I were reading a story before bedtime and waiting for Rick to come and join us. I called his name to see how much longer it would be, but he had just stepped out in the garage and couldn't hear me. Then Riley started calling out too... but instead of calling to "Daddy!", she decided to call for "Rick! Rick!". I actually couldn't tell what she was saying at first, but once I put it together, I was laughing so hard. It's the first (and certainly not the last) time she has called one of us by our first names... a sad, sad day! :)
