Just now over our morning oatmeal:
Harper: Are you happy, Ma?
Me: Yes. Are you happy, Harper?
Me: What makes you happy?
Harper: Mama makes me happy.
Me: Thanks, Harper! You make me happy too.
Harper: You're welcome, Ma.
Seriously, what this kid does just makes me smile.
As an aside, she also talks to all sorts of inanimate objects now. For example: "Thank you for helping me eat my oatmeal, Spoon." According to Mimi, she befriended a speck named Baby Toothpaste yesterday. "Do you like my blankie, Baby Toothpaste? You do? Grandma made this blankie. She can make you one too."
