Been working on getting my now 19mo old to identify herself by name. This is a pretty huge developmental milestone and one I’ve been looking forward to. She’s great at saying her name but hasn’t gotten the concept of saying it’s her name.

Until today…

“What’s his name?” I ask pointing at Jeff.

“Papa,” Sadie declares.

“What’s my name?” I ask pointing at myself.

“Mama,” Sadie says lovingly with a huge grin.

And this next question has been asked numerous times:

“What’s your name?” I ask.

“I Sadie,” she shouts as patting her chest.

Oh my. The world was shaken by our joy! Success. She gets it. She truly gets it.
