A conversation with Minty today....
Minty (pointing at a picture in a magazine): look Turi, fluffy puppy dogs!
Me: try not to distract Turi, he's trying to feed
Minty (authoritatively, pointing at Turi): feed now!
a little later when Turi finishes eating Minty starts stroking Turi's head softly...
Minty (to Turi): love you
Minty's current favourite phrases:
"Who's that little person?"
"Thank you my dear"
"Lovely" (in reference to something she's eating)
