talk about it more

a virtual baby book

When she was two, Fiona regularly said "Talk about it more!" to express her desire to know more about whatever we were discussing.

Nora's salad

Jen was making a spinach and radicchio salad with cranberries, shredded carrot, feta cheese, and pecans, and out of habit (rather than any expectation that there would be an affirmative answer), offered it to Nora.  Nora really wanted to try the cheese, and she liked it, and wanted more.

"You can have the cheese if you have the salad," said Jen.

"O-kay," replied Nora.

She had some stipulations: no carrot.  No nuts.  No "purple stuff".  And she wanted ranch dressing for her spinach.  (She loves the dried cranberries.)  A couple of minutes later, she was asking for more salad.  

"Hey, wait a minute ... where did your spinach go?" I asked.

"I ate it!" Nora whispered.

Now she's on thirds ...
