Caitlyn is exploring doing things herself. The other day, this happened during a game of Flop. (To play Flop, first be sure you have lots of throw pillows piled just at the end of your mattress on the floor. Stand near the head of your bed and say, "Mama push me," then wait for your parent to gently push you forward into the pile of pillows. Shriek with laughter.) After picking herself up, pushing the pillows back together, she'd come to the head of her bed and instead of asking to be pushed, she'd say, "Caitlyn push me." Then she'd put her hand behind her back, pause, then throw herself forward. This version was just possibly funnier than the usual, Mama-enabled version.
