A Mackerdoodle Milestone and a Cheesedoodle Conversation

Here are two fun moments at the Cowan house from this week.

The cheesedoodle is beginning to perfect non-verbal communication through head nods, head shakes, pointing, and a few other signs.  After his nap one afternoon, we were having our mama snuggles (is there anything better than post nap mama snuggles?).

I asked him: “Are you stinky?”

He nodded, with a twinkly grin.

I asked, “Should we change your diaper?”

He shook his head.

“You don’t want a new diaper?”

He shook his head again.

“You just want to stay stinky?”

He grinned, nodded and climbed off my lap to go and play.  It was so cute I almost let him get away with it.  Almost.
