that's what she said

Ryann:  speaking gibberish and expecting me to understand, because she thinks it is funny
Me:  "You are probably the craziest kid I know."
Ryann:  "I'm not a skittle!"
Me:  "What??  What are you talking about?"
Ryann:  giggling "You and the dolphins."
Me:  "What?!?!  Seriously.  You are a nut."
Ryann:  "But I'm not crunchy!"  laughs hysterically

Ryann:  "I need to go potty!"
Me:  "Ok, let's go."
Ryann:  "You need to take my pants and underwear all the way off."
Me:  "Why?"
Ryann:  "Because they're wet."
Me:  "Why?"
Ryann:  "Because I pottied behind the Christmas tree."
thankfully there was no puddle behind the tree, but her pants were a bit wet

Ryann:  "Do we still have pumpkins?"
Me:  "No, we don't have any more pumpkins."
Ryann:  "Why?"
Me:  "Well, pumpkins are more for Halloween and Thanksgiving, and those are over."
Ryann:  "Is it Christmas time now?"
Me:  "Yep, it is getting to be Christmas time."
Ryann:  "Well, we better sing some Christmas songs then!  Sing."

Me:  saying our bedtime prayer "God bless Mommy and Daddy, Grammy and Papa..."
Ryann:  "And cake.  Don't forget to bless cake."

Me:  "Did you know you're my favorite?"
Ryann:  "Yeah."
Me:  "Am I your favorite?"
Ryann:  "Yeah.  And fruit snacks."

In general Ryann's conversations and sentences are becoming so mature (in structure and form, not in topic).  She says things like "I haven't quite decided," and "Sure, just give me a minute."  I'd say at least once a day I she surprises me with a phrase that makes her sound so old.  And then she makes farting noises with her mouth and laughs hysterically and I remember she is two and a half.  :o) 

And I have to throw in this little tidbit.  I was a little irritated when I heard Ryann awake on the monitor at 5:45am this morning.  She had 'school' yesterday (which = a crappy nap) and she didn't fall asleep until nearly 9pm, so I thought surely she'd sleep in for me (for the record she has since gone back to sleep).  But I watched her for a minute, and she arranged all the 70 bajillion buddies she has accumulated in her bed into a neat little row by her pillow.  Then proceeded to give them each a kiss and told them to sleep tight.  Dead from the cuteness.
