Why, why, why

Chloë finally seems to be understanding "why" questions. It's been so wonderful to be able to communicate with her, and now that we can ask her about her motivations, communication gets ever more interesting:

Jenny: Chloë, why is this piece of pizza on the placemat?
Chloë: Mmmm...Chloë put it there.
Eric: (chokes with not-silent-enough laughter)
Jenny (teeth gritted against a grin): Please put it back on your plate.

Chloë (looking at a picture of Elmo holding a long, gray stick): Elmo hungry?
Jenny: Why do you think he's hungry?
Chloë: Elmo have knife.
