B- Baby, Woobie and Jessie. It's her perfect trifecta of comforts. She doesn't go to sleep without 'em. (It's been baby and Woobie (her little mini blanket) for 2 years now, but recently, my good friend Jen Lofgren donated a TON of Toy Story toys to the kids and since that day, Jessie has been a full fledged member of the Hunter Olivia Bedtime Crew.
C- Calendar. I hung a princess calendar in her room for her because she was always asking me when things were going to happen. She is obsessed with it. She loves going through it from start to finish so she can tell me everything that's going to happen. We recently started finding pictures of everyone she knows and gluing them to their birthday on her calendar.
D- Daddy's little girl. This is no exaggeration-whatEVER he does, she wants to do with him. Mow the lawn, wash the cars, build a tent, weld a trailer, tinker in the garage. She's everything the boys are not. :) She LOVES her daddy.
E- Exactly like her mother. She looks like me, she's spunky, she's feisty, she's sassy, she's BRILLIANT, (hee hee). And she just might have an itty bitty temper....like her mommy. :)
G- Girly Girl. She wears princess dresses, high heels and jewelry. She loves to have her hair done and she loves to do other people's hair. Is totally into picking out her own outfits and choosing her hairdo for the day!
H- Habit. She's a creature of it. She's very systematic about how we do certain things.
I-Independent. Wants to do everything all by herself. (And she CAN do most things without help.) She wakes up, takes off her jammies, puts on clean underwear, picks out her clothes and puts them on, and even puts on her shoes.
K- Kitchen. If there is food to be made, she's in it. And she's helping. She's cracking eggs, stirring, mixing, pouring, etc. She loves to be a little cook.
M- Moves all OVER her bed while she sleeps. I typically find her sideways, upside down, head in her footboard, and even practically standing with her feet on the floor but her tummy and head on the bed. Poor, restless little sleeper. (The best part is that she thinks it's so funny.) She can't wait till morning when I tell her how I found her.) She modeled some of the positions for you. (see below)
|Feet on the floor...|
|Body on her bed...feet on Colton's...|
N-Needs a 'piggytail' and a bobby pin for all meals. Hates having her hair fall in her face while she's eating. (Can't say that I blame her, really.)
O- (I have two letter O's cuz I couldn't pick just one.) "Oll right." (Say that with a long O sound.) It's her "phrase" right now. Hunter: "Mommy, what're you doing?" Me: "Feeding the cat." Hunter: "Oll right." OR Me: Five more minutes until bed! Hunter: Oll right!" It's so simplistic it's funny. AND
P- Pepperina Pizza. It's her new thing. :)
Q- Questions everything. Nuff said.
S- Sings. A LOT. She sings real songs, she sings songs she makes up. She just sings. In the dressing room at Target she sings, "Tryin' on a sweater, tryin on a sweater.."And Smart as a whip. I know I'm her mom, but she really is smart.
V- Very crafty. Loves to paint, use chalk, draw, build, create. You name it. Preschool has been a heaven for her! She comes home almost every day with a new creation (or 3).
|And was thrilled that it looked like a fish when she was done!|
|Her chalk person|
|Drawing chalk bodies|
W- Won't eat potatoes. In just about any form. (French fries are okay occasionally.) Otherwise, forget it. She won't touch 'em. (This is about the only trait of hers that makes me question our genetic relation to one another.) :)
Y- Yearns to make friends with our cats. Oh, she tries so hard to get them to come to her. She's even learned how to walk slower, talk softer and make 'clicky' sounds that are enticing to the kitties. She sooo wants them to love her. She even turns on the bathroom faucet in hopes that Gracie will come out from her hiding spots to drink the water.
Z- She's a 'zesty' little thing. (Yes, I had to google adjectives that begin with 'z' for this one). She really does have a zest for most things she does. She especially loves her brothers (her boys, as she calls them) and she loves her family to pieces. She's spicy and funny and a true cracker jack. As we've said many, many times....THANK GOD BABY C WAS A GIRL!
