like e diamond

after bath time i lathered my little ones naked bodies in lotion. lillian climbed up to the table to have a pre-bed snack of yogurt as i dressed the littlest in his jammies. i looked up from the couch after a moment to see my daughter rubbing yogurt all over herself exclaiming, "yogurt lotion!" with a twinkle in her eye that says, "mama I'm brilliant!"..... i laughed and then back to the bath for a quick rinse off.

"like e diamond in da sky" is the new name of the more commonly known song, "twinkle, twinkle little star". my singing two year old's song book of melodious bliss knows nothing of the titles or bounds of how a song should be sung. i love the freedom that two brings... so independent, adventurous and full of wonder! her favorite song currently is "happy birthday" sung to a personal tune & her newly made up song is "butterfly morning", which is one of my personal favorites.

"hey buddy" lillian shouts at her brother as he begins to fuss... the mere sight of her face smashed up in his makes his frown become a smile.
