Big Day for Tiny Caroline.

Tiny Caroline turned two today, and suddenly acquired competence with the first person subjective pronoun. All day she has been saying things like

"I wash hands with soap"


"I pooped"

Just yesterday she would have said "Washa handa me" and "Poopy me".

Not only that, look at that first sentence. It contains an adverbial phrase. An adverbial, prepositional phrase! Were you to diagram that sentence, it would have a main line, and a smaller line coming off of it, like a side track.

Not only that, she also said

“My pretty dress all wet”

(This right after she washed hands with soap.)

Look at her use of adjectives! She is so cool!
