tonight's lunar eclipse

Paloma was in fine form tonight, pointing at the stars and the moon as it was being eclipsed by the Earth's shadow. She loves pointing at pictures of the stars and moon, then pointing upward. I love the language comprehension acceleration of young toddlers! The best part was when I told her we were watching a lunar eclipse. She pointed at her head, and then I understood-- she was pointing at her hair clip. Clips, eclipse. A very intelligent mix-up!

Here are beautiful photos of the progression from a blog on Vox:
