Our "Baby" Talk-
The other day, Brennan woke up from his nap a little too early and was crying and whining in his room. I went in to calm him down and try to get him to go back to sleep. I crawled into his little toddler bed and snuggled him close. Our conversation went something like this-
Me: Oh, Brennan. I love you so much. You're such a nice guy.
Brennan: And you have a baby in your tummy.
Brennan: You have a baby in your tummy!
Me: If you say so. But I sure hope not! You must really like Bryleigh if you want me to have another baby in my tummy. Do you want another baby?
Later on, when Ryan got home, I told Brennan to tell him what he thinks is in my tummy. Brennan excitedly told Ryan the story.
Ryan: What's in Mama's tummy?
Brennan: There's a baby in Mama's tummy!.... Actually, there's two babies!
Ryan: This just gets better and better!
FYI- THERE IS NO BABY IN MY TUMMY! I AM ABOUT 99% SURE!
Lately, we've been working hard on getting Brennan to drink milk from a cup. He is still hooked on the bottle, but we have successfully taken it away at nap time and replaced it with a cup (which he reluctantly drinks from with lots of prodding) so that he only has morning and night bottles now. Yesterday, before his nap, we talked about milk.
Me: Brennan, take another sip of your milk. Remember, milk is good for your body and you need it!
Brennan: Yeah! It makes me big and strong (shows his muscles) and then I'll get bones!
Cool. I would have guess he already had a few of those.
