This weekend, Natalie was playing around in her play-area. I was sitting on the floor a little bit away, mostly just watching her while she was playing.
She picked up the phone from her play kitchen and had a conversation on it, complete with pauses to listen, etc:
"Hello... Uh-hmm... How are you doing... Okay, Bye!"
Then she put the phone down and looked at me while she said:
"That was your Mom calling. She said she was doing good."
Then she kept right on playing, not skipping a beat.
That comment made me smile.
My Mom passed away more than ten years ago.
