rain is made of... water!?

KB LOVES water... swimming, baths (she constantly asks for them), the hose, anything to do with water - esp if it means her getting wet. :-) Recently she even discovered how to turn on the kitchen faucet.... and is often found trying to push a chair across the room, just so she can play in the water. LoL.

Another part of her water-loving... is an obsession with rain. Whenever she hears it begin (which is almost daily, lately) she'll run to me exclaiming "Yane!" and fervently begin signing rain. ~ Her favorite is when - if it's not thundering/lightening)- I let her go out and play in it.... talk about the simple pleasures. <3 style="text-align: justify;">So, last night, as we were driving in the car, we came into some really hard rain... and KB naturally yells out "Yane, Yane!" I say, "Yes KB, it's raining... do you like the rain?" to which she responds, "mmmhmmm" There was a few moment of thoughtful silence, before I hear her little voice say, "Mama?" ~ "Yes KB?" ~ and she goes. "Yane......" ~ 'Yes KB, it's raining!" ~ "Mommy, yane... wat-tooo.... yane, wat-too..." ~ "yes, KB... the rain is made of water! Very good!" She was so adorably excited to make the connection - two of her favorite things, are in reality actually one in the same! - she then had to proclaim a few dozen more times: "Yane, wat-too... wat-too, yane..." ~~ It was too cute! ;)
