Recognize Numbers / Sweet Loving Girl

Hi Sweet Baby Girl!

Recognize Numbers

This evening you really surprised me.  You wanted to make popcorn and wanted to press the buttons on the microwave, so I picked you up so you could press the buttons.  While waiting for the popcorn, I pointed at each number in order from one to nine.  You knew every one of them…  but you’ve known how to count for a while.   You said “what about zero” ….  haha… you’re a silly smart girl.

What really impressed me was that you named off some of the numbers that I pointed to randomly.  You recognized around 4 different numbers as I pointed to them.

Later we brought Mommy over to show her.  She also recorded a video on the camera.  Of course you silly girl…. you said “I don’t know” for most of the numbers we pointed to.

Sweet Loving Girl

You were extra sweet and loving today.  You gave us lots of hugs and snuggles.   You snuggled and said “I lovvve you daddeeee” a few times.  A few times you also said to us, “I love William”.  You also gave him lots of hugs.  It was cute.  Your hugs did turn into squeezes and William got mad and was screaming.  I took some pictures.  I didn’t get any really good ones, but these ones were cute.

Needed Mommy To Lay Down With You

You stayed up until after 9 this evening, which is pretty late for you.  Mommy was saying, you’re 3 now, so you can go to bed by yourself.  Mommy took you up to bed to tuck you in but ended up wanting her to lay down with you.  You said to Mommy … “I know I’m 3 now mommy”.  Mommy said “does that mean that you are going to bed by yourself”.  You replied “no, that means I want you to sleep with me”.  So, Mommy layed down with you for a while.

I love you sweet baby girl!

You Nutty Performer / Spelled Your Name / Didn’t Want Me To Lay Down With You

Hi Little Baby!

Its funny… I still call you that…. little baby.  I’ve always called you that.  Even still, when I snuggle with you or give you a hug I say “I love you little baby”.  I may always call you little baby.

You’re Such A Silly Nut & Performer

This evening before we went home, we stopped at a grocery store to get a couple things for supper.  Soooo, first you walked past a couple people in line at the checkout and threw the item you were carrying up on the belt.  We reeled you back.

Second, you just needed to hold the darn basket while we were standing in line, even though it was heavy.  You made me put it down so you could pick it up.  You’re a strong little girl though.  You surprise me with the size and weight of some things you pick up.

You didn’t do this this evening but it got me thinking.  You are so independent and want to do things yourself.  If I do something like put groceries on the belt at the check out, and you decide you wanted to, you get mad and say “I wanted to do it” and bully me out of the way.  You even will undo what I did … you will take the groceries off the belt, put them back in the basket or cart and start again, doing it yourself.  Silly silly girl.

So third … while at the checkout when were getting ready to pay, you scrambled your way around in behind the cashier.  You looked up at us with a big smile on your face and said “look at me …… I’m working” while you pretending to quickly put groceries into plastic bags with both hands.  After we and the cashier and other people in the store had a laugh, you looked up with a big bubbly smile and said loudly “have a good nite”.

Wrote Your Name

This evening you were playing on your Innotab.  You said you wanted to write your name.  I went over to help you out.  You were in the right place, I just pushed a button to bring up the onscreen keyboard.  You then typed the letters of your name.  You’re such a smart little girl.  I took a picture of you posing with your Innotab.  You still have ketchup on your face from supper.

Didn’t Want Me To Sleep With You

Lately you’ve been falling asleep downstairs watching TV by 7 or 8 PM.  Then I carry you up to bed.  For the longest while before that, You needed me to bring you to bed, tuck you in and lay down with you.  I often tuck you in and try to get out before you notice, but you always say in such a sad cute voice … “daddeeee … I want you to sleep with me”.

Last night you said that you were ready for bed.  I went up to your room with you, tucked you and went over to shut your curtains.  You said “daddee … I don’t want you to sleep with me”.  I just gave you a hug and a kiss and left you to fall asleep on your own.  That was quite a surprise.  I guess you are a big girl now. 

I love you sweet baby girl!
