Silly Kids (semi-off topic)

So, my daughter is 22 months old and is going through this phase where she tells you everything that just happened a second ago. For example, if she burps, walks, runs, eats, drinks, whatever she'll say, "drinking" or "running" etc.

Sometimes in the morning she'll wake up and while on the changing table she will yawn and she always says, "yaaaaarn" : ) which is super cute.
