We've been doing a little baking around here...
...testing the product while giving the stink eye. Awesome.
And luckily she didn't like the way the frosting on the gingerbread house tasted.
She has been cracking us up with the things she's been saying lately. One of her new favorites is, "I too busy, I'm playin'!" whenever we ask her to do anything. Oh, and she has become quite the back-seat driver. Here are a few typical statements that can be commonly heard in our car-
"Slow down!!! You're going toooooo fast!" (I don't think she actually understands if we're going fast or not because she says this even if we're going 15mph)
"Be careful mommy! Be careful of the cars - they might POP you!!!" (apparently pop means crash)
"Turn here! Turn down this street. Don't go straight, Poppy said turn!!!"
"Light green. GO! GO! No stop - light green mommy!"
And she's all about the independence lately too. All during the cookie frosting fun, she just kept saying "Look mama, Poppy do it all by myself! I don't need help!" And when I told her it was time to get dressed today, she proudly declared that I can stay downstairs because she can dress herself, all by herself, and that she DOES NOT need help. About 1/2 an hour later, she comes downstairs looking like this (see picture above). When I finally talked her into letting me help her get dressed, I discovered that had 5 pairs of underwear covers on. Yes, 5.
