she will speak of things she remembers and, from learning "last night" as a phrase, adapts it and will frequently say "last day" or "last morning." usually the event referred to is further in the past, but she still prefaces it like this.

sp: (cutting in) "and he gave me a LOT of stickers!" -feb. 9

sp: "i'm beautiful."
me: "yeah, but do you know why? you're a daughter of God."
sp: "but baby moses is a child!" -feb. 9

"can i watch a new movie now? 'bear in the big blue house' is getting kinda old." -feb. 12

(praying) "thank you for my mommy to get better." -feb. 18

(singing to a random tune)
