Tickle my funny bone

I’ve got to tell you, having an 18 month old can be hard, but it can be hilarious too.  The peanut is always making me laugh about something.  Whether it be a face she makes, a reaction to a new food or, now more than ever, the things that come out of her mouth.  She is suddenly a talking fool I tell you!  Today we had friends over and she had a dirty diaper so I was walking her upstairs to change her when I got a breath of not so nice didy.  I reacted, “Wow.”  She responded, “WOW!”  It still makes me chuckle.

We went to my parent’s on Saturday, because, well, it’s hot here and they have a pool.  Could there be a better reason?  I totally forgot my camera, which is unfortunate because it was a kodak kind of day.  Apparently, the peanut loves the pool.  I knew she loved water, as she never wants out of the bath, but this was crazy!  Her lips were turning blue, but did she care?  Oh no, she wanted to stay in that pool.  And, as soon as we put her out she fought to get back in.  She is a waterbug!  I have never seen that child laughing or smiling as much as she was in that pool either.  I can’t believe her cheeks didn’t hurt.  Swim lessons are definitely in her future!

The peanut also got her first real doll this weekend.  What else to call her but Dolly?  It is so sweet to see her hugging the doll and taking care of her like it is her baby.  She tries to feed her and give her the pacifier and it is just too adorable!

  

Another funny thing the peanut is now doing is leaning her head over to one side when I take a picture.  I’m not kidding, it’s like she’s posing.  Too funny!

Lastly, today she decided she would talk to the chickens.  Here’s a picture  of her balk, balk, balking…she is too much!

    Speaking as the wife of a professional photographer, we’ll know modeling is in the cards when she starts licking her lips before the shot. (you know, for that healthy gloss look) But that’s AFTER she wins her gold at the Olympics!

    So many adorable pics of an adorable child! And oh, let me tell you… M has a lot of the same mannerisms! She puts the arm out in front of herself, trumpeting like an elephant (ASL is very close to that, I think), used to cock her head to one side for a picture, now she’s picking up anything square, holding it up to her eyes and saying “shees, mommy, shees”. And the babies have done to them alot of what she’s about to do or doesn’t want done, like having her hair washed – “no, baby ash air”. Oh they make my heart smile!
    Isn’t it so wonderful being a mommy?

    Thank you so much for your prayers, A. They mean alot to me. Bless you, g
