A few words are now fully established in Chloë's vocabulary; among them is "apple" which, true to toddler form, is distinguishable only if you're very liberal with the pronunciation. How does one tell for certain it's established? Point at the apple on the counter: "['ɛ-ph]." Ask "where's the apple" and she points to the apple on the page.

So one of her books has apples on one page, and oranges on another page. After saying "['ɛ-ph]" to the former, she then looks at the following page... and says the same thing to the oranges.

I told her "You're comparing apples and oranges."

Which was then followed by a horrible groan from Jenny and "you have to blog this."
