First Crush

We went out to ice cream the other day, and while we were eating, Henry looked over at the line to the counter.

"Look, mama! That guwul!" he said.

"Yes, Henry," I replied.

"That guwul is bootiful!"

The girl looked like any other girl, I thought. Blond hair, cute enough, wearing an orange shirt and a brown skirt.

Then Henry added, with a smile on his face, "I want to go cuddle she!"

Run! Run wittle guhul!
My Boy used to have a running commentary on all of the passing people, saying loudly whether they were "boootiful" or old or not wearing enough clothing. It was EMBARRSING! And hilarious.

I love this. So hilarious. Ella had a similar experience with a boy at the McDs playland. The little boy was rubbing his hand along her back, and she was rubbing her own hair as if to show him its glory. They were both around 18 mos. old. Then Gideon swoops in, picks Ella up, and says to the boy, "THAT IS MY SISTER."
