Sweetest Words

I'd like to take a break from Christmas-related blogging (as if I haven't just been taking a break from blogging lately) to share some of my favorite phrases, which are repeated often these days by my nearly-two-year-old.

  • "I wuff u, Mommy!"
  • "Cuze me, Mommy!"
  • "Sowwy, Mommy!"
  • "Cullel, Mommy!" (cuddle)
and last, but certainly not least,

  • "Go potty, Mommy!"
I will feel so sad when her sweet little baby-talk voice goes away. Don't you want to just bottle it up and keep it forever? The only joy I can find in her getting older is that each stage brings something newly adorable. (Here she is in one of Henry's hats, which she loves to wear around the house. Silly girl.)

So cute, and you know, I never thought I was a girl mom, but when my little girl came, even though I always thought my boys were cute, she just captivates me all the time. Says and does the cutest things, just makes me smile- I feel an intense bond with her. I imagine you must feel the same way. :)

p.s. You won a book on my blog, but I need your address. Drop me an email when you get a chance.

Bronwen is getting so big - I miss her hugs at church. She will be a big girl when I get home. I love reading your blog even though I don't always comment. It makes me feel a little connected to home. Have a Merry Christmas and give all the kids a hug from us.

I feel the same way about Eli!!

They grow up so fast. I love how Princess doesn't pronounce the 'r' sound. She is such a snuggle bunny!

I hate when people tell me to appreciate it now because it doesn't last forever. I think about that every day.

Aw! I love this stage. It is kind of sad when they start saying things correctly. She is adorable!

What a cutie! Sure wish that Monkey would say that last one to me! But the sweet baby voices are, as you say, precious!
