Girl Talk

(Sera has started asking questions about where babies come from and the mechanics of being a girl)
Mom: "Well, mommies bleed once a month so that they can have babies."
Sera: "Where do the babies come out of?"
Mom: "They come out of mommies' vaginas."
Sera: "But they'd get stuck 'cause it's too small."
Mom: "Well, when you're having a baby it gets bigger."
Sera: "Weird!"

People Food

(At the dinner table, 5-month old Jillian is sitting on my lap and leaning over towards my plate as if she wants to taste the food.)
Sera: "Hey! Jillian's not allowed to eat people food!"

(Sera's learning her letters. Everyday she'll pick a word for Mom to write on the chalkboard, then will try to copy the letters underneath herself. When I get home from work, Sera likes to show me the word she wrote)
Me: "Whoa that's a big word, Sera. Can you tell me what letters are in that word?"
(she points to each letter in succession)
Sera: "S...C...I...S...S...O...R...S"
Me: "And what word does that spell?"
Sera: "Italy!"
