The other day these three were snuggling while I was reading to them. I'm so lucky to be their mom.

Things Lily Says

Lily keeps me laughing all day long with the things she says. I just want to record a few before I forget them. 

•She calls Haley "Sisty" (short for sister)
•She calls socks "slippery shoes"
•At one of Britton's football games, she climbed to the top row of the bleachers and yelled, "I'm at the top of the highest mountain!"
•Whenever we tell her to do something she doesn't want to do, like go to bed, she says "but, I'm a nice baby"
•We were playing 20 questions a couple months ago in the car.  After quite a few rounds, she got the hang of it and wanted a turn. So, she picked an animal and we proceeded to ask questions. We were guessing every animal we thought a 2 year old would know and she just said "no" to all of them.  Finally, she was getting impatient with us and she blurted out, "Is it a howler monkey?  YES!"  We all got a good laugh. I don't think any of us would have ever guessed howler monkey. 
•One day we were looking for her shoes and we couldn't find them anywhere, she ran in and said, "they're probably in the gooey geyser!"  (Too much Dora)
•Haley wasn't doing what Lily wanted her to so Lily came to me and said "Haley is making bad choices". 
•She loves to sing and make up songs and goes around singing all day long. She hears a lot of Taylor Swift, thanks to Haley, and she sometimes mixes up the lyrics of songs. I love it. The other day she was singing at the top of her lungs, "trouble, trouble, trouble, we're never getting back together!"
•She uses "seeing scopes" and "noculars" to look at birds in our backyard. 
•She does "nastics" routines and dances everyday for us. 

I wish I could just record her all day long. Two year olds are the greatest thing ever!

Conversation at the park

Lily: Look, Mom, there's an airplane!  They fly high with the birds. 

Me:  Do you want to fly in an airplane? 

Lily:  No, I want to fly in a condor.

I finally got my sewing machine out today for the first time since moving to Texas.  Haley really wanted to do a project with me so we made some shirts for one of her dolls. It was really fun and now I have a million ideas of projects I want to do. Britton even sewed with me for a while after Haley was done. He helped me with my scrap quilt. They are both pretty good at sewing.
