Things three year olds say

Posted Jan. 2, 2015
This age is HILARIOUS!!!
Things N tells me: (I started this last summer... Now is a good time to finish :))

Two years old: When he gets in a hot car he immediately starts groaning/whining, wrinkling his nose and tells me "The sun is in my nose!!!"

My favorite, "I need to hold you mama."

Three years old:
"Daddy, will you wipe the hair off your face so I can kiss you good night?"

"Oh no! A flew almost went in my ear!"(fly)

His slang word is "Taco Bell". Literally. He's never been there yet for 6 months he'll call you a Taco Bell if he doesn't like something. "Aw, Taco Bell!!!" 

Ben: noa h, I'm going to count to three...
Noa h: Taco Bell!

"La yl a Be ss is being a Taco Bell...." 

Kids crack me up!

One year with LB

I'm at month late, but we have had a wonderful year with our sweet girl. She's feisty, yet sweet and snuggly. Well, mostly she's feisty about being snuggly.  Girl LOVES to be held... And eat. 😋
We celebrated her first birthday at Nana's house with a small party but lots of fun. Here are her stats: 

She didn't like her hands dirty. 

LB cracks us up and brings us so much joy. She's a great sleeper and will play independently as long as someone's close so she can get a hug in every little bit. She yells a lot at daycare because they don't comply with her demands (quiet and dark for sleeping, feeding her every single time anyone else in the room eats, holding her every time she needs a hug). When she yells/screams at home I typically put her to bed because I know it means she's tired, but it's not that simple at school. 

She loves her purse or any bag on her arm. 

Getting sprayed by the hose!!

I love that she still loves to be held. N was way too wiggly to snuggle at this age.

Christmas 2013

I am so behind in posting, but we had such a wonderful Christmas that I do not want to forget it! We put our tree up the week before Thanksgiving because I was in major need of some Christmas cheer. I enjoyed every minute the tree was up, but have since taken everything down to the dismay of my 2-year-old. I am glad to have the space back, but look forward to next year already!
 We had great friends come and visit. Aaron reading N 'Brown Bear, Brown Bear'.

 Alabama weather is CRAZY! I saw an e-card today that said "A place where you can get sunburned one day and frostbit the next." This picture above was a few days before Christmas and we were making sure our 'tornado helmets' fit as we prepared for the bad weather. Thankfully it was just a loud windy storm for us.
 Getting ready to go to Christmas Eve Service.

 After Santa came! 

 We did DIY stockings this year. Maybe one day we'll have the cute matching monogrammed ones :), but in the meantime these were great. LB LOVED this bell. It was huge so it wasn't a choking hazard.

Some Christmas decorations that Ben's mom gave to us this year so we could decorate for the 2 Christmas celebrations I signed us up to host. Lol! Ben thought I was crazy, but it is easier to host it so I can put LB to bed instead of trying to visit with people with an 8-month old WAAAY past her bedtime.  I loved this DIY printable next the the angel. Just search Christmas Printable on Pinterest. There are a ton!

But this one is my FAVORITE!!! I think Elf is my favorite movie year round. 

 Not a great pic, but this is our tree and presents (after Ben's mom came and delivered her items under our tree too).
 LB found herself a present Christmas morning! (I have no idea what that spot is on her head.)

 Going after the presents! I don't do Christmas chaos... we take turns open presents and make it last. It took us over an hour to open presents and I loved every second.
 This one cracks me up because LB grabbed those puffs and flipped it upside down before I could even realize it, but it was caught on camera which made it all okay... plus entertained her and our dog the rest of the present opening.

 N still thinks both Scout and Violet are his. 

 We traveled to Florida to visit family the day after Christmas and had a WONDERFUL visit.

It was an amazing Christmas season! We were able to celebrate Jesus' birthday, N sang Happy Birthday to Jesus at least 200 times. I loved every minute of it. I am so thankful to be able to spend it with so much family and have 2 weeks off to be able to travel to see everyone.
