Rose and the art of conversation

Rose: “Hazel’s such a cutie! She’s like a little baby doll.”

Me: “Yeah, but just a little bigger than a baby doll.”

Rose: “Like this?” She holds her thumb and forefinger an inch apart.

Me: “A lot bigger than that.”

Rose measures Hazel by walking her fingers down the length of Hazel’s body and counting. “She’s nineteen!” [Hazel’s actually 24.5 inches, for the record, and was three months old yesterday.]

Me: “And she weighs about twelve pounds.”

Rose: “What?”

Me: “She weighs about twelve pounds — like, how heavy she is.”

Rose: “No, I mean, like ‘Incheresting!’ or ‘Awesome!'”

Me: “Like, ‘What?! She weighs twelve pounds?!”

Rose: “Yeah. Wow!”

    Almost like she’s saying, “She’s touching me.”

    Rose is adorable. And so is Hazel.
