the things she says & does...

I can't believe how fast Goose is growing... it seems like it was only yesterday that she was gurgling, blowing bubbles, jabbering-in-non-English in my arms... and now she's closing in on two and a half and speaking more words, more clearly... mimicking Hubs & I... coming up with her own sentences... turning into Little Miss Independent... it's so hard to believe, and while I'm at times saddened by the fact that my baby girl is growing up, I'm also thrilled at how smart and sassy she's becoming... although at times, a little too sassy it seems... the things that come out of her mouth these days are often hilarious, and often Hubs & I are trying to hide smiles or chuckles when she says or does something that we really don't want her repeating... here is a small sampling of life with an ever-evolving Goose:

********************************************************************


while pinching my fingers in a hairclip I pretended that it hurt, saying "ow Goose! that hurts Momma's hand!" she then removed it from my hand, kissed my "owie" patted my hand and said, in perfect toddler-English "you okay swee-heart, you okay"



********************************************************************

while in the shower with me as I turned to wash my face, leaving her standing in the opposite end of the tub playing with her toys (or so I thought) - she hits my bum and then says "you butt wiggow Momma"

********************************************************************

 while snuggling with me in bed one morning she wrapped her arms tight around my neck and said "you my mommy"

********************************************************************

wanting to be picked up while going out to the car "Goose hold you Momma"

********************************************************************

when turning off cartoons at night before bed or in the morning before going to daycare "night night Dora, night night Boots, night night Benny, night night Issa, night night Tiko!" or "bye bye Phins an' Ferb"

********************************************************************

asking to have a ponytail like Momma "I want pony, Momma!!"

********************************************************************

upon bursting into the bathroom to find me unwrapping an always with wings "you have owie Momma?"

********************************************************************

I'm just thankful at this point that she hasn't repeated any curses (which we try to keep to a minimum, but still... ya know how it goes!) and that she wasn't asking for an ACTUAL pony.
