So cute!

When DD wants something to eat she will say fridge. So I go to the refrigerator and open the door for her and ask her what she would like. She stands there and says, "Ummmm, think!" with her hand on her chin. Too funny!

Married to my soul mate and totally devoted to DD (6/08) and enjoying our 2 cats and many fish. Wishing for a "green" house in the country where we can raise more children!

My 26 month old DD started saying "umm" right about 24 months. It's so cute. I'll ask "What did you have for lunch at daycare?". DD looks up pensively and goes "ummmmmm....pasta".

Ha! LOL! DD just started this a couple of weeks ago. I'll ask her where an object is and she says "Ummmmm... Ummmm..." while she looks around for it. Too cute : )
