“Audrey likes her cow.”

This sentence is interesting to me for so many reasons. First, Elliot used “like” for the first time yesterday.  Granted, he used it in the store pointing at toys telling me which he liked. Secondly, Elliot pays enough attention to his sister that he knows which toys she likes. And lastly, he brought her a toy she liked in exchange for a toy he wanted.  Quite the negotiator that one. Giving somebody something he knows they like for something he wants.  Too bad it works on me too.  He gives me kisses and I give him cookies.
