I'm pretty convinced this morning that Nathan is trying to train Elise like a dog.
So far this morning she has mastered "sit" and "stay" and seems to think this is the greatest game ever.
When you think about it, it really makes a lot of sense, my mom has a puppy, and it seems Lily and Elise are constantly in the same developmental stages. Phone calls between my mom and I are mostly us constantly telling Elise and Lily to stop eating things, be quiet so we can hear the other person on the phone, and to stop climbing up on things too high for them.
One place Lily is kicking Elise's butt is potty training, but Lily doesn't wake up and immediately accessorize, so I still think I've got the better deal.
