My Baby Girl Makes Me Laugh

Oh my gosh I love this post about my sweetie written May 23, 2008

 

I want to write down a bunch of things that I should remember about my baby girl. She is just 3 and we already know we need to always be at least 5 steps ahead of her.
 These days when she hugs me she says, “Mommy, you my friend.” Love it.

When she says good-bye to someone she adds a quick hand to mouth (blew me a kiss) gesture. Not sure where she got that from.

She is a mega manipulator and will probably be a lawyer when she grows up. This morning she asked for cookies for breakfast. Because she knows this is a definite “NO” I chose not to respond to her at all. We have gone down this road of wills and I was tired this morning. When I didn’t answer she turned to her brother and said, “Handsome, do you want black and white cookies?” He said “yes.” She looked at me and said, “Mommy, Handsome wants cookies. Grrr…

After the bus ride yesterday, each kid was given a pencil case with an eraser school bus in it. Handsome loved it and held onto it all night. In the morning while watching TV he put it on the floor, Goddess ran up, snatched it and said before running off, “You’ll never find it now.”
I actually had to walk away to snicker because the only thing missing was a devious laugh at then end.

Another thing she is doing, and maybe it’s a girl thing, but she is constantly telling me, “Mommy, so and so doesn’t like me. Like when she says something to someone at the supermarket, gas station, McDonald’s drive through or the like and they don’t respond. The other day when her Dad was giving Handsome a bath and asked her to close the door so Handsome didn’t get cold. When someone doesn’t want to play, share, or hold her she says they don’t like her. It’s so sad and cute.

She also tells me everyday, “Mommy, I am going to get bigger!” Her dad and I tell her yes, she will and that we want her to take her time. Aaargghh she is going to get bigger?

She is a natural born model/actress and it scares the crap out of me. The pictures above are my favorites of 25 shots I took of her consecutively in 2 minutes. She just kept changing her pose and her facial expression without coaching. Crazy!

I almost feel like I know her from reading about her here and in other posts. She's one of a kind, and that's pretty special! Great little model, too, even back then!
