Mama's Little Helper

Life with a toddler is so much fun! She's like a little sponge, soaking up all kinds of knowledge and new skills. Just in the past couple of weeks we've learned some new signs, started saying "kitty" and "duck" more clearly (thankfully our speech is still mostly babble and she hasn't picked up any "choice" words), and has even started playing "Ring Around the Rosies."

Yesterday afternoon I let our dog Hank out to go to the bathroom. It had been raining the last few days, so when we'd bring him, we would wipe his paws with a cloth we keep behind the chair. Apparently someone else was watching, too. Imagine my surprise when I turned around to see this:

At first I thought she mistook his cloth for her lovey. Then the pieces fell into place as I watched her wait patiently at the door, knocking to get his attention (just like Mommy). I grabbed the camera as quickly and quietly as I could and immediately called Travis. Moments like these just don't happen every day.
