Toddler Homophones

This morning Emily and I went downstairs to play trains while Sophie "watched" and Sarah got some extra sleep upstairs.  It was a nice quiet morning, and everything was going well.  The trains were chugging, Sophie was cooing contentedly, and Emily was entertained, so I ran upstairs quickly to print something.  I came back after one or two minutes and Emily ran up and announced "Daddy, baby Sophie was crying!  But it's OK, I gave her the fire."  Slightly alarmed, I went into the living room to make sure Sophie wasn't actually engulfed in flames.  "Tada!" Emily proclaimed.  Turns out Emily said "fier", short for pacifier, which she had given to Sophie while she pushed her in the swing.  Not only was she not on fire, but she was happy and quiet.


  1. So sweet! May she always look after her baby sister...

  2. This made me laugh out loud. Aren't two better than one!?
