10 Reasons Why My Kid Is Cuter Than Yours

There, I said it: my little girl is cuter than everybody else's. Don't believe me? Then, let me marshall the facts:

1. I heard her giggling in the car and, there in the rearview mirror I saw that she was tickling her own feet.

2. Whenever she's calling her daddy and he doesn't respond, she tries a new approach: "Daddy? Daddy! DADDY! ELIOT!!!!" Yes, she yells at her father using his first name. It's the funniest thing ever.

3. Even in she's not getting her way, she's cute. When she's told something will happen "later" she nods thoughtfully, repeats "later" and then lists everything that will happen "later": playground, dogpark, chocolate [and so on].

The other day, she was bored so she picked up her tiny purse, put on a wrap (actually her sling that daddy carries her in) and opened the back door, headed out.

Me: "Where ya goin, sweetie?"

Cutest Toddler Ever: [Not looking back] "Dogpark"

4. She kisses her own owies and declares them "Much better." She does the same thing for Mom and Dad, sometimes inspecting us very closely until she finds something to fix.

5. During storms, she asks for "More thunder, please, daddy".

6. She blows raspberries on me and has since she was 14 months old.

7. We've played Bunny Attack with her favorite soft toy, Bunny. So she started playing with Bunny in the carseat, going Yaaa! Killer! while pretending to struggle with Bunny lunging at her throat.

8. This one comes from reading her alphabet book that has Q is for Queen.
Me: Dada, what does the Queen say?
Dada: He-leeew [waves like the Queen, fingers together, wrist rotating]

9. She gave nicknames to her grandparents, Boo to her grandma and Ba to grandpa.

10. Me: What does a pirate say?
Dada: ARRRR!!
