Tonight after dinner and her bath, Ella was wondering around the living room while her Daddy was watching tv. I eventually came in (after cleaning up the supper dishes) and sat on the floor with her. She played with both of us, every now and then coming up to one of us and laying her head on us and kissing us. Well, she went and got one of her books and brought it over close to Stevan (who was laying on the floor). She then proceeded to hit him with it, causing him to say, “ouch!” At first, I don’t think she knew if what she did was bad or if it was supposed to be funny. She just sat there listening to Stevan moan and groan. He started to pretend that he was crying….she still just sat there and looked at me and then back at her Daddy. I told her to kiss Daddy and make it better. When she didn’t move, I came over and kissed Daddy and then she burst into tears! Daddy’s tears caused her to feel bad and cry, too. I picked her up and then Stevan took her and she immediately laid her head on his chest and tried to quit crying once she knew he was okay.
Bless her heart….I think she felt bad because he was hurt, but I also think she felt instant remorse for having hit him, too!
This new age is amazing to me!
Stevan’s version is quite cute, too!
