Sweet Pea Reminiscing

Sweet Pea has been telling us a lot of "when I was born" stories lately. She's very interested in how her new baby sister is growing inside me, how big the baby might be when she's born, and what the baby will be able to do.

So far we haven't been able to convince Sweet Pea that newborns are pretty much unable to do much of anything. Sweet Pea is sure that she came fully capable: talking, mobile, and ready to take on the world.

Today at my doctor's appointment Prince Charming and I took Sweet Pea with us. (She was going to hear the heartbeat again but it turned out that Prince Charming and Sweet Pea both missed the doctor almost entirely because Sweet Pea needed a bathroom break.)

"Mama, when I was borned," Sweet Pea told us while we waited, "I grew in your tummy. Then I came out. And I said, 'Hi! my name is [Sweet Pea's real name]'."

Which is exactly how I remember that happening too, of course.

So all our thinking and planning for Baby Girl #4 may just be unnecessary. She might just pop out like her big sister and announce her name to the world.
