A "Little" Update

Little Lady...
  • says cute and funny things all day. I love listening to her play and talks to her doll and other toys. She is definitely a girl and she is a talker! Even when she is playing with her blocks, she pretends they are people and they talk to each other and go places. Love her imagination!
  • says her "piggy pank is melting" when it starts chipping off. {Piggy Paint = non-toxic nail polish}
  • loves to put on a pair of girly shoes and dance around the room. She also loves to put on music and dance! Our favorite to listen to is Seeds Family Worship.
  • is very "mothering" {a.k.a. bossy} to her little brother, even to her dad and me. We are practicing asking for people to do things in a nice way and using polite words instead of demanding. We are also practicing how to handle when people don't do what we ask them to do.
  • loves cupcakes! She loves to eat real or pretend ones. We 'make' and 'eat' cupcakes a lot.
  • likes to be called Foofa from Yo Gabba Gabba. Calls her brothers Brobee. As ridiculous as the show is, it has been easier for us to teach her some things by referring to Yo Gabba Gabba. They have annoying repetitive songs with catchy phrases that teach the kids lessons. For example: "Don't take it away, Don't just take it away." And "Try it, you'll like it!" There are others but those are the two we use the most often.
  • is often heard saying phrases like, "Thats the truf, mommy" and "I AM funny/silly/a princess" and "How'd I get to be so cute, mommy?" Then I'm prompted to say "God made you that way."
  • will pray and thank God for everything she can think of at random times throughout the day without being prompted. She is understanding more biblical truths all the time. She loves going to church and Sunday school.
  • is going to be 3 years old in less than five months. We will be starting preschool homeschooling in the fall. I'm excited and in shock all at the same time. Wasn't I just about to have my first baby, like yesterday?! No that was your third.
Little Dude...
  • is talking so clear and often! He surprises me with all the words he can say. If you say something, he can and usually does repeat it right back to you. Just this morning he walked up to me holding his pacifier saying, 'Wash it. Gross.' Just like that, the same way you and I say it. I would make a list of words he says but I think the list of words he can't/doesn't say is shorter. I'm not even sure what those are!
  • is our emotional and sensitive one. If any one coughs or sneezes he is the first to check on them and he will genuinely keep asking if you are "O-Kay" until you assure him that you are fine. He also loves to say "Bess you" if you sneeze. When ever big sister is in trouble or sitting in time out, he wants to be with her and make sure she is ok. We also have to be careful how we respond to him when he does something so adorable you want to coo or giggle over. He gets embarrassed very easily and I'm working on taking him seriously. But he is seriously cute.
  • has started coming up to us out of nowhere and say "wuv you." Melts a mama's heart every time.
  • LOVES to be: chased around the kitchen, tickled like crazy and snuggled.
  • adores his big "sissy." He will ask were she is if we take him anywhere with out her. He walks up to her and asks "doin?" or "watchin?" when she is playing or watching a show. The sweetest part is that he crouches down and puts his hands on his knees and tilts his head to one side.
  • has an addiction to his pacifier, or whats known as a squishy in our house. He can usually be found with one in his mouth and one in his hand.
  • thinks strawberries are a main food group. Cheese is the other one.
  • will be 18 months soon and I can still remember holding when he was the same size as Itty bitty.
Itty bitty...
  • is almost 2 months already.
  • loves to nurse and does it like a champ. 
  • already has baby rolls forming and is outgrowing size 3 month clothing and size 1 diapers. See second bullet point.
  • likes tummy time already.
  • smiles at us daily.
  • is awake for most of the afternoons and evenings.
  • sleeps for two 3 hr stretches at night and goes right back to sleeping after eating.
  • is sleeping in mommy and daddy's bed.
  • is adored by a big sister and a big brother. And of course his mommy and daddy are over the moon for him too.
"How did I get to be so blessed?!"

What a sweet post! A while back I started sharing similar things about my daughter each month and I love being able to look at past posts and see how she's grown. 

And 'piggy paint' is hilarious!!

Thanks! I use the update posts to make a book of each year for each of the kiddos! It's so easy on Shutter fly or, I just copy the posts and add some pictures in their book templates and then they have a book to look back on that year of growing up. :)
