"Laetitia, grosse fille."

"Mai NON".

In the last couple of weeks, Laetitia and I will have this little conversation all the time. "Laetitia, are you a baby?" "No, Laetitia is a BIG GIRL." And one evening during dinner, she started talking to herself (as she sometimes do) and then she said, "Laetitia, not a baby, big girl" and then she looks at her papa and said "Laetitia, grosse fille." Etienne and I burst out laughing. Well, technically she is right, big = grosse BUT, grosse means fat more than big in the sense that I meant when I told her she is a big girl. So, her papa has been telling her that she is a "grande fille". And the funny thing was, one evening she went to one of the caregivers in the daycare and told her she is a "grosse fille" and this lady is really slim. I had to explain that Laetitia meant to say she is a "grande fille". :p These funny stories really make my day.

She is turning into a little lady now. She is very sweet and caring with her toys. Patting her dolls and stuff animals, kissing them and asking if they slept well. As we pray before our meals, Laetitia now would say "Merci Jesus" as she sits to eat her food. It really touches my heart and I pray that she will get to know God personally.

There was something in particular that I wanted to blog about but I totally forgot about it. It happened this morning and it was something sweet that she said/did. I think I'll have to keep a little notebook to record these little incidents. Anyways, here are some photos to share.

She is also becoming much more independent now. I could leave her in her room by herself while I take my shower (which could take up to 15 mins when I wash my hair as well). Normally I will close the doors to my room and the living room, put a gate to block her from coming into the shower but keep the door opened and leave her bedroom door opened. Then I will tell her to either read a book or play with her dinning set while I take the shower which she will happily do. Sometimes if she is a little fussy, I'll give some crayons and paper and have her draw/colour while sitting outside the bathroom on the floor
