Flower!

Who remembers this scene from the Disney movie Bambi?
(I apologize if it's bad quality or not in English, I didn't get a chance to watch it yet.)


More dialogue from the bigger scene:
Thumper: [Bambi and Thumper see birds flying by. Bambi looks at them intriguingly.] Those are birds.
Bambi: Bur... Bur!
Thumper: Look! He's trying to talk.
Bambi: Bur!
Other rabbits: He's trying to say "bird."
Thumper: Say "bird."
[wiggles his nose]
Bambi: Bur.
[wiggles nose]
Thumper: Bird.
Bambi: Bur!
Thumper: Uh-uh. Bir-duh!
Other rabbits: Come on, say "bird." Say "bird!"
Bambi: Bird!
[rabbits scatter and run to their mother]
Other rabbits: He talked, he talked! He talked, Mama! The Young Prince said "bird."
Bambi: Bird, bird, bird, bird, bird bird!
[Bambi sees a yellow butterfly, which he begins to chase until it lands on his tail.]
Bambi: Bird!
Thumper: No, that's not a bird. That's a butterfly.
Bambi: Butterfly? Butter-
[Bambi sees the butterfly has now gone; he then runs over to a big yellow flower among some other wildflowers.]
Bambi: Butterfly!
Thumper: No, that's a flower.
Bambi: Flower?
Thumper: Uh-huh, it's purty.
[Thumper smells the flowers.]
Bambi: Purty.
[Bambi starts smelling the flowers, and comes nose-to-nose with a little skunk.]
Bambi: Flower!
Flower: Me?
Thumper: [laughing hysterically] That's not a flower! He's a little-
Flower: Oh, that's all right. He can call me a flower if he wants to; I don't mind.
Bambi: Purty. Purty flower!
Thumper: [starts to giggle] Oh, gosh.

Got enough cuteness yet? No? Keep reading. :)

Zoe has started to learn sign language and she's learning real words as well. Recently she learned signs for things outside. She knows the sign for leaf, and she will do that sign if you ask her. Yesterday, she picked up one of the fallen leaves on the ground. It was a bright beautiful red. (who doesn't love this time of year in New England?)
She promptly looked at me and did the sign for it and said "fow - er!". :)

I started to correct her, but then it was so cute I just let her think that the red, orange and yellow leaves were flowers. :)  Cute kid. :)

Now I need to go find my version of Bambi, might be on VHS....
