We've been getting baby stuff galore dropped off at our house lately (Thank God for having tons of nephews!). Poppy was super excited about having an extra car seat to play around with all day. She calls her cabbage patch doll "baby brother" and after she buckled him in and then herself into their car seats, she called me over to tell me that they were ready to go to the zoo! She literally played with that thing all day long.
This little girl has been cracking me up with the things she says lately. One of my favorites of the week was yesterday morning, we were reading a few books in my bed and she looked down to see that she had a few mosquito bites on her leg. She asked me why the bugs bit her and I told her that it's because she's so sweet and they like the way she tastes, and that they would heal soon. She said, "I have a good idea! Today we can go to the beach and I can put my legs in the water and the water will splash on them and help heal them. And then you can have baby brother while we're at the beach, and he can give my bug bites a kiss to make sure they heal! Sound good, mama?" When we first told her that I was pregnant, she immediately asked when the baby would be here and we told her this summer- when we start going to the beach (we assumed that she didn't understand what the summer was, but she knows that we go to the beach in the summer). So now she always talks about "when we go to the beach to have baby brother". We are actually take a "sibling" class at the hospital tomorrow morning, where they'll give her a tour of the maternity section of the hospital and have her practice bathing and feeding a doll. I think she's in for a little surprise when she realizes that we won't be having this baby at the beach!
I am getting so behind with pics of different things we've done over the past couple of weeks. We took our nephew Gage, and Poppy and met some other friends at a Bison's game last week. We usually drive by the baseball field a couple times a week and each time Poppy sees it she asks when we can go watch a game, so needless to say, she was very excited.
And she is just smitten with her cousin Gage. Anything he says or does makes her burst into giggles...
And then for some reason, she always associates sporting events with food. Hmmm...
So today was my last day of school!!! I can't even tell you how hard it was to make it through these last few weeks! I have been so tired and exhausted, but I'm also in turbo nesting mode, which means I try to cram as much as humanly possible into every second of our weekends. I am so glad to be able to just be home with my favorite girl while we prepare for this baby! I only had to work a half day today, so as soon as Poppy woke up from her nap, the two of us were off to the zoo. We had such a great time, just the two of us. Can't wait for the fun adventures we have waiting for us this summer!
yay for summer!!!
So glad you get to enjoy some alone time with Poppy. She is looking so grown-up in these photos. We just had Colin measured and it looks like he has grown another inch recently. I am not sure I believe a total inch but he has definitely sprouted yet again. I cannot keep up!
Me neither! I got big plans for us this summer! For before AND after Oliver's best friend gets here :)
Yay for summer!!! I love that Poppy associates sporting events with food... Don't we all?!
It just amazes me what a great grasp Poppy has on time and events. I feel like Morgan understood but wasn't able to be as verbal. She's going to be a wonderful little helper :)
