I feel pretty, oh so pretty

Nate is in total toddler sponge mode. He has been absorbing everything we say and spitting the funniest phrases back out at us. For example:
  • We were running after a ball in the park the other day. He reached it first and with a smug smile said, "Nice try!" 
  • When he knows he is exasperating me - usually at mealtime - he'll say "Geez Louise" or "Sheesh."  I have no idea when I started using these phrases. And apparently I use them frequently. I really like four letter words. What has happened to me?
Oh sheesh!
  • One of his favorite phrases to whip out at random times is "easy peasy." He claims the rarely seen Prairie Dawn on Sesame Street taught him this term.
  • I asked him today what I could possibly do to get him to nap in his crib, he replied, "deep breaths."
  • But my absolute favorite thing to hear him say - which he says unsolicited and quite often - is "Mommy pree-tee!"  It makes my heart melt every time. No matter that he also thinks Elmo is pretty. No matter.
