Lotsa Lil' Tidbits!






Well, it stopped snowing and/or raining long enough for us to actually get outside for a bit on Saturday afternoon. It was FAR from warm, but we bundled up and got out there for some fresh air. Lily (obviously) was in heaven...riding her bike, playing with a neighbor friend, and getting pulled along in her wagon. Spring can come any day now...we're ready.
Now, on to the recent Lil' Tidbits.
(a lot of her most memorable material comes when we're driving in the car.)
-on the way to grandma's house she starts yelling "We're coming bwamma! We'll be there soon!" So, I say "Yes, Lily, we will be there soon." To which she replies, "I'm talking to bwamma! She's not good at waiting." She has mentioned several times since then the fact that
neither myself nor my mother are good at waiting. Hmmm...where does she get her facts?
-on the way to a playdate she starts comparing the friend we were on our way to see to her "fwends fwom China"...she said "my fwends don't wive in China eddymore. They wive in Amewica just wike me...when I wived in China I was so sad. I was wooking for you eveweewhere and I couldn't find you...I'm so gwad you fwew in a pwane all the way to get me and bwing me home. I'm so happy to be a famiwee forever!"
When I was tucking her into bed one night last week she was talking about how much she missed her friend that we had spent the afternoon with. "I miss Riwee so much. I reedy wanted to bring him home, he's so good."
Getting her dressed the other morning she asks me "Did you pick out my ele-phit?" I was like, "Did I pick out your ELEPHANT!? What are you talking about, Lily?"
"My ele-phit. Did you pick out my ele-phit!? My ele-phit...my CLOTHES!"
Oh, your OUT-fit. Yes, I picked out your outfit.
She is constantly rhyming words. She'll say a word and pick a word that rhymes with it or she'll ask me to tell her a word that rhymes. When she asked me what word rhymes with grass I replied "sass"...she immediately said "Oh yes, sass whymes with gwass. I'm sassy...but I'm pwacticing NOT being sassy."
I asked her what kind of party she wants for her birthday this year. She said "A princess party...and when you see me, yell surprise. And I'll say thank you, I love surprises."
She is still very into imaginary play. She is constantly grabbing pretend things out of her pretend backpack. She even keeps rainbows in there and is always bringing them out to show people asking "do you wike wainbows??" Love it.
Two of her newest common phrases: "I'm gwumpy" and "I'm gettin' fwustwated."
We were in her playroom listening to a CD of some silly songs and she had questions about all of them. The Farmer in the Dell: "Why does the cheese stand alone when evewee one else runs away? My Bonnie lies over the ocean: "Bring back my body?" (I tell her "no, Bonnie") "But, we don't have a Bonnie. I reedy wish we had one." It's Raining, it's Pouring: "Why can't the old man get up in the morning?"
On and on (and on)...
Oh, I have so many more. But, this is gettin' way too long. Until next time!

I think Glenys and Lily are twins no joke. Glenys asked the same questions on some of those songs.

She got confused between swimsuit and pantsuit yesterday, ended up being a pretty funny conversation.

I just love that you blog about all of Lily's fun sayings! How wonderful for her to see later on too. :) Sounds like you had a fun weekend!

Sharon said...

What a cute post! I hope Spring hurries up and gets there for you!!

Michelle said...

Oh, she is so funny! Thanks for sharing the Lily tidbits...they are lots of fun to hear!

We also live in an area that doesn't quite realize it
is Spring, yet. Soon, please!!

Oh, and not to worry...even though I have heard Dave and Ella singing the WonderPet song over and over, I still wouldn't have been able to say for sure what their names are. The toys she just received had all of their names listed on
the tags : )

Gee Gee said...

Liy has to be the sweetest child on this planet. The words that come out of her mouth are just so simply beautiful.

I love her Lil' tidbits don't ever stop with them.
