YES, IT'S BEEN WAY TOO LONG AND I'VE MISSED DOCUMENTING MILESTONES AND SHARING STORIES. GUESS FACEBOOK HAS MONOPOLIZED THE LITTLE BIT OF SPARE TIME I DO HAVE. YEP, I'LL ADMIT I'M A PROUD FARMER IN FARMVILLE NOW, RAISING COWS AND CHICKENS AND HARVESTING MY CROPS. MINDLESS, YES, THERAPEUTIC...MAYBE!
OKAY SO WHAT IS MY TINY TOT UP TO THESE DAYS, HMMM. SHE CAN FINALLY OUT TALK ME! Now for those that know me it's quite an accomplishment to do that:)) she talks up a storm and it's very entertaining to hear my daughter try to talk just like me!
JUST A FEW OF MY FAVORITE SAYINGS:
-MOMMY, I CAN'T LIKE THAT (rather than I don't) LOL
-STOP A TALKIN TO ME!
-I'M SO TIRED (gee where did she learn that)?
-Calls her Zhu Zhu "little Buddy".
-LOVES THE MOVIES MONSTER'S INC. AND BOLT! She thinks the green one eyed monster is an M&M and engages me in convo regarding the fact that he only has one eye and no nose!
- ENJOYS DRESSING UP, TAKING CLOTHES OFF IN THE FRIGID WEATHER AND PUTTING HER "SNOW WIPE" DRESS ON. YES SHE IS SNOW WIPE, WIPING EVERYTHING OFF THE FLOOR WITH THAT COSTUME THAT IS TOO BIG FOR HER, BUT OH HOW CUTE!
-ADORES TALKING ON THE PHONE AND YES SHE KNOWS WHO SHE IS TALKING TO.
I OFTEN FIND MYSELF BREAKING OUT IN SONG TO THE WONDER PETS THEME OR THE BACKYARDIGANS AND KIRA SAYS EMPHATICALLY, "MOMMY, STOP MAKING NOISE" or recently "STOP SINGIN". WELL I HAVE TO AGREE WITH HER ON THIS, I HAVE NO TONAL VOICE RANGE.
-MY DAUGHTER IS DEFINITELY A MOMMA'S GIRL AND A LITTLE SNUGGLE BUG. OH HOW I LOVE HER AFFECTION. EVERY NIGHT, AFTER SHE FALLS ASLEEP, I PLACE A GENTLE KISS ON HER HEAD AND JUST STARE DOWN AT THIS CHILD, STILL AMAZED THAT SHE'S MY DAUGHTER. SUCH A BEAUTIFUL BOND AND LOVE THAT I'M SO GRATEFUL FOR AND ONE THAT I ABSOLUTELY CHERISH.
-SHE'S CERTAINLY A TODDLER BECAUSE EVERYTHING IS HERS!
I MUST LAUGH BECAUSE THIS IS A UNIVERSAL CONCEPT IN TODDLERHOOD, NOW TRYING TO INTRODUCE THE CONCEPT OF SHARING.
-OUT OF THE BITING PHASE AND OH SO POLITE STAGE! So cute to hear her say please and thank you and it was so easy to teach, go figure. Maybe potty training will be this easy:))
-I WUV YOU MOMMY! PURE MUSIC TO MY EARS.
I WUV YOU TOO BABY GIRL!
