Baby Adventures: Tales of My Amazing Toddler!

My toddler is nearly 16 months old. Each day she amazes me with her insight, independence and initiative.  I now understand what people mean when they say that the baby phase goes so quickly.  It seems like they transform from babies into little people overnight!

Yesterday, I was making corn muffins before work.  I opened the refrigerator to get an egg and turned my back to place the egg on the counter. 

While my back was turned, my little girl managed to get into the refrigerator. 

When I turned around she was inside of the refrigerator.  I could only see her back.  I didn’t want to startle her by calling her name too loudly because I had no idea what she was doing in there.  So, calmly I said her name in a normal tone.  I expected her to turn around with her face covered in jam or something.  But she surprised me.

She turned around and in her hand was her “Yo Toddler” yogurt.  Then, she implored me to give her some of it. The imploring was with her eyes and somewhat unintelligible noises, but her intent was clear.  She wanted to have some yogurt for breakfast.  Of course her mother obliged.

As I said, I was impressed.  However, I am still wondering how she distinguished between the “Yo Toddler” yogurt and our Chobani yogurt that was right beside it…

Clearly they don’t stay babies for long!
