This and that and a goofy hat!



Now that Lily's potty trained, we're trying to figure out a use for those princess pull-ups! What do you think???

Seriously, she's just a goof. Don't have ANY idea where she gets it!

She has become a non-stop chatterbox lately. She has an opinion about everything. And it isn't always nice. She is quite the sassy one. And if I choose to ignore her sassiness the first time around, she just repeats herself until she is acknowledged. In the car sometimes I just turn the music up louder so I can have just a moment's peace. (FYI: that doesn't work. She just talks louder...MAAAAMMAAA!) Don't get me wrong: I love that my girl has a lot to say. Most of the time she is charming, witty and smart! She is my absolute favorite source of entertainment...however, it does get to be a bit MUCH at times. And now that Christmas is in the air, shopping has become a total trip. Items in stores are all potential Christmas presents in her eyes..."I want dat...I need dat...can you buy me dat? Can dis be my Cwismiss pwesent?" OVER AND OVER AND OVER. (Saddest part is I have a really hard time saying no.) I took my mom with us to Target tonight and she finished her shopping (for Lil) in a matter of 20 minutes - and she KNOWS that her gifts will be a big hit cuz Lily already put her 2 cents in. My mom's just hoping Lily forgets by Christmas what she bought her - fat chance, mom, the girl's got a killer memory. We put up our tree last night and a few decorations around the house. Then, I checked my blog and saw that my Blog Fairy had been here! (thanks again, Verna. I love it!) It certainly is beginning to look a lot like Christmas!

You are welcome, dear friend! Your Lily sounds so much like Mya. She can talk constantly when she wants. Currently, she is playing independently--dentist to her doll. Mya also wants EVERYTHING for Christmas. They can be so funny and exasperating all in one day!

Love your new look for xmas! Great job.
Can you ask Lily if I can have one of those cute pull up hats - very cute. I'm starting to find xmas lists all over the house.

The picture is hilarious and what you wrote is so funny. I know my daughter was (and still is) quite the "chatty kathy" too.

Love the new look Nikki...pink is my favorite color after all! ;) That Lily is such a stinker! I love it!!!

Juliette said...

I agree with you: our girls are so lovable and so annoying at the same time!
Yesterday Maëlle did a tantrum while we were shopping, she as never done that as a baby, but all the way back home she cried and yelled in the car. Crazy!
And now she starts to answer in a mean way when you tell her to do something or make a comment on her behaviour. Not 4 yet! And her birthday is December 21st so it's all about her party and Xmas, and of course the presents, every single day...

Tiffany said...

This all looks and sounds so familiar!
I love the Pink Christmas Blog!!!!!

Holly said...

Janet said...

Verna is a gem, she sure knows how to make us blogers happy with her never ending talents.

kris said...

Oh boy, the Christmas wish list in full force! She is SO dang cute though, I can see how it would be hard to say no!

I have a friend who has 4 kids and they each get 3 presents (one big one) just like Jesus did :O) I always thought that was a great way to tone down the gift giving and put the focus on Christ.

I just love Miss. Lily , she is so like my Jillian.
The photo just cracks me up!
Congrats on the potty training, ya!!
Now about that Xmas, good luck with that, LOL. :O)

Linette said...

Love the picture-ha! We still have some pull ups around here. Now I know what we can do with them. ;)
Hannah talks non-stop too! Must be the age. ha..ha. And I love the new Christmas look too! What would we do without Verna?

Lol. I do the same thing when in the car. Turn the radio up and act like I can't hear...

Thank you for your kind words tonight.

Chris & Lindsey Wheeler said...

She is the cutest thing ever!! I love the diaper on the head. Thanks for your comments about our video...it meant so much to me!! I can't wait to have little Eliana (and still praying for Xio) home with us.

Love,
Lindsey

Mommy Spice said...

OMW....it's the same story over here. S.G. has a list of things she wants for Christmas. No matter how many times I remind her she will not be getting everything she's asking for, she just keeps adding to the list. And sassy...well, I guess that's the spicy in the spicy girls!!

Dannye said...

that is such a stylish "hat", hehehe always the crack up that girl of yours!! gotta love the girls that have lots to say!!

Steffie B. said...

First off.....I saw Lily and I thought what a cute little princess hat....and then I looked a little harder and just started cracking up! I've got a sassy one too....perhaps we should compare notes.....love the holiday blog look....Miss Blog Fairy is a sneaky one! ;0

redmaryjanes said...

Oh my word! I love the blog, it is just perfect. And the pull-ups hat, a new fashion hit I think. Hmm.. Eli has 'Cars' pull-ups.
I'm glad that you all are doing well and Lily is full of great conversation. Enjoy the holiday season!

mommy24treasures said...

oh Verna did a lovely job!
Love your little chatterbox!

Yep Sassiness is in full force here too. It must be in the air.

Anne Marie said...

Creativity is a wonderful asset for a girl!!! Oh boy, Christmas! I remember sitting with the Sears catalog starting in October making a list that always had at least 50 things on it, I kid you not!

Thank you so much for all the wonderful comments on my blog! I am trying to catch up here and there on all my blog buddies -- I know you understand if I am not around as much right now!

Sounds like Hannah also. When we got back from China she was talking even more than before we left. She also has an opinion on everything and has to know what we are doing everytime we move. We were at Target yesterday and she kept telling me that she wanted to look at toys to see what she might want for Christmas. Got to love them though.

Miss Lily, I love your new hat and think that you and mummy should both wear them!

You are going to have so much fun this year. Christmas is just a big lump of excitment in our house.
