Pequeña hermana

Lily has developed an obsession with babies. I think a couple of the children in her class have recently had baby brothers or sisters, plus my sister baby sat a little baby the other day and Lily got to play with him. She very seriously told me last week, "Momma, we need to have a baby at our house." She's been telling everyone at daycare that her sister has a baby in her belly, and she's been telling Josh and me that everyone at daycare has babies in their bellies.

On Saturday we spent the day out for Josh's birthday. Lily's jabberbox was on as always, and she was steadily chatting about her baby sister. I said, "Where exactly did this little sister come from?" She quickly replied, "Her came from Mexico." What? How does she even know the word Mexico, let alone that's it's a place where you can come from??? She's the silliest little girl I've ever known. She cracks me up. So next time you're out and you see a little Mexican girl, I want you to ask yourself if that's Lily's little sister!

I'm positive that her Mexican little sister is named Dora. If I see her, I'll let you know.
