Baby Z loves cows. This week we talked with Papa on speakerphone. She was amazed when I told her he had cows we could go visit. Even more exciting was the brilliant array of colors in which she must have pictured them.
Me: Do you like cows?
Baby Z: I like cows!
Me: Did you know Papa has cows at his house we could go visit? Would you like to go see the cows where Papa lives?
Baby Z: (stunned)
Papa: I have a black and white cow.
Baby Z: Black and white COW!
Papa: And I have a red cow.
Baby Z: Red COW!
Papa: And I have a cow that's white all over.
Baby Z: White cow!
Papa: And I have a yellow cow.
Baby Z: YELLOW COW!
Me: Wow, a black and white cow, a red cow, a white cow and a yellow cow. What other color cows do you think Papa might have?
Baby Z: GREEN COW!
Well, yes, why not a green cow? They do seem to come in every color of the rainbow after all.
