She is very independent. This can be frustrating, but it is also so cute. She insists on trying to get her shoes on and get dressed. Tonight she took her pajamas away from me, walked about 10 feet away and put them on all by herself! Crazy. My boys definitely didn't do that this early. They didn't care! This love of putting things on carries over to costumes too. Tonight after dinner I heard Nathan yelling that he didn't want to go to jail. Here is the arresting officer...
After they were done with this, they moved on to another one. Is she not the shortest spiderman you've ever seen?
She has a couple of phrases I just love right now. Tonight at dinner I gave her a plate of tortellini.....she looked at Calvin and said, "My hot is going up!" We discovered she was referring to the smoke rising from her plate. Clever...don't you think?
I love it when she's been trying to get something and finally gets it. With a note of satisfaction she always says, "aaaaaiiiiiiirrrr we go."
She's got a great sense of humor. If she makes a mistake when she's talking she repeats it in a really funny voice. She'll point to the milk and say, "Can I have some water?" Then she'll look at me and say, "WATER?" And she'll just crack up. She is very silly.
The girl is totally in to make-up. It started with a couple of princess lip glosses, and like any good addiction, just built from there. Nana gave her some old face powder and a couple brushes....she's in heaven. I find her all the time just sitting with her make-up like it's the best thing in the world.
Oh...and she likes this.....
This sweet little girl is in LOVE with all her blankies. She loves the minky fabric and can't even touch it without putting her thumb in her mouth. The two just go hand in hand. She has two taggies. They go everywhere with her. One was supposed to be an extra, but that's not how it worked. Now when I put her in her crib she says, "Where's my one taggie and two taggie?" Both have to be accounted for or we're in trouble. There are also two other small blankies and two quilts that have this fabric. They ALL have to be in her crib. Nana keeps making them thinking then I'll be able to wash the others. As soon as Jilly knows there is another one, it just gets added to the collection. Besides that, her Biddy Baby (Baby Jill) sleeps with her, and SHE has her OWN minky fabric blankie. Can you say obsession? I really need to get a picture of her with all these blankies...and Baby Jill with hers. I'll work on that.
