FUNNY and sweet :)

Please check out Nathan's March 10th posting on Dropping names. I almost died! :)

So I had kind of a tough day yesterday. Right before bed I was unloading the dishwasher and feeling totally drained. Then I heard the padding of sweet little girl feet coming into the room. She walked right over to the dishwasher and started handing me silverware to put away. It really touched my heart, that little gesture of love from my little helper. :) It reminded me not to get overwhelmed by silliness, when there are tons of things to be thankful for.

Check out The Art of Whimsy's blog, Nathan is in top form these days, he cracks me up. One of my favorites it about OP shorts. (This is Nathan posing with a Johnny Depp I.D.)

Baby Soso Update

Hi ya'll! Went to the Dr. today and had an ultrasound. She said that Baby Soso (as my little Rosebud lovingly calls her) is a big 'ol 4 pounds and is in the 20th percentile. She is expected to be 6 pounds at birth--she's a bit on the small side. They told me that Soso's big sister would be 7 lbs, and she ended up being 6 lbs 1oz, so who knows?

It was really wonderful to see her. I feel her all the time, but it's another thing to put a face to the kicks, it was quite precious. My Mom and eldest daughter got to come with me to see the ultrasound, which was special as well.

Please keep praying for our little bundle of love! :) Thank you from all of us! :)

Rosebud Speech

I will be really sad when my daughter learns how to pronounce some words right. It is just so adorable and innocent, and it's really hard to say things correctly to model proper speech for her (I do, it's just I'd rather say, "here's your apapple.").

Here are some of my favorites:

Ap-apple (she used to say this perfectly)
Yesh (yes)
peese (please)
Onge (orange)(wish I had audio of it, it sounds French)
Wah-er (water)
Ma'am-a (banana)
Pahta (pasta)

But she can say tons of words perfectly, like "accident." :)

And my new favorite:
Baby Soso! Precious! :)

Another favorite:
She now plays air guitar, complete with sounds. It's awesome.

One last one:
She calls out "Jess" really loudly if I'm out of the room. She does it because her Dada does it, I don't think she knows it's my name. It makes me giggle.

My daughter slipped on a tile step going into the living room today. She hit the side of her face on the edge of the tile, giving her a shiner, scratching her brow area and cutting the outside crease of her eye. She cried for a bit but now is happy as a pig, and has continued on with her daily activities like nothing happened. I, however, feel so sick about the whole thing that I think I could just call it a day and wake up tomorrow, hopefully less sick. The funny thing was that I got chastised for running so fast to get to her once I saw those feet in the air. Hello?
