She is a talking machine, surprising us with new phrases on a daily basis. Today I heard her say "I think so" while FaceTiming someone. Her personality is so imaginative and funny. The other day she and I were driving home in the afternoon and she suddenly asked, "We go daddy's wok? Pease?" She didn't say anything at first, but a minute later she told me that her baby was sad and when I asked why she said, "Baby wanna go daddy's wok. She sad." I think it was the same day, while also driving, that she suddenly said, "Mama sop! (stop) Sop mama." I asked why and she replied, "Coz. (cause) My baby's going nigh-night." I glanced back and sure enough her baby doll was lying peacefully on her lap, although I'm not sure why Bentlee thought that required me stopping the car.
Today we were at the store and I wondered out loud if I had everything I needed. She said, "Yeah that's nuff". One of her new favorite words is "almost" (aw-mose) and uses it to respond to me when I ask her if she's done eating, if she's ready to go, etc.
|She's got pouting down pat.|
|I wanted to see what a dress looked like on me and I don't trust mirrors so I had her take a picture of me in the fitting room. Of course, she had to pose for a picture as well.|
|I try to get her to cuddle me in our bed in the mornings but only a handful of times has she actually fallen back asleep|
|The only "dress up" she plays is dressing like daddy. I should probably get her some dresses...|
|She doesn't go to sleep without at least 2 babies, a stuffed animal, and her "guys" (aka princesses) but we mix up the faces|
|Clearly she didn't get her reverence from me. but how could I not capture this?? (I actually had her reenact for me the second the prayer and sacrament meeting were over)|
|Did I mention she's really good at pouting?|
|And making us laugh?|
|Dinner is never boring at our house|
|I had to post these three pictures. Here she's pouting because I decided after sliding down the slide for the 23rd time in the 95 degree weather, that I was ready for a break.|
|Here she decided that her hat was in the way of her pouty hands so she removed her hat and then her glasses...|
|Only to fold her arms instead. Oh, how I love her.|
|She found this swim cap at the store and after I helped her put it on she exlaimed, "I'm Nonan!" Nolan is her 1 year old cousin in Michigan and I have no idea what she meant by that but I was laughing so hard.|
|It's all I can do sometimes to not pull her out of bed and squeeze her guts out!|
