Kids say the darndest things part two

Oh the things kids say to me sometimes.... I can't help but crack up. They have absolutely nooo filter. None. Zilch.

"Mrs. Jackson, do you walk a lot? You look really healthy. I think you must walk a lot."

exactly one week later I got this comment from a 1st grader...

Boy: "Are you having a baby?"
Me: ""
Boy: "Oh. You look like it."

"Mrs. Jackson! I got an Xbox Kinect for Christmas! I got it from Santa. And I know it was from Santa because my mom hates video games!"

"Did you fart? It smells like fart in here." I promise I didn't far... just saying.

"This is like possibly the funnest game I've played in like, um... since Thursday!"

"I don't want to play that. ever. again. I hate this!"

This next comment came from a 6 year old with the most serious look and tone in her voice...
"Mrs. Jackson, you and I need to talk!" And then she proceeded to tattle.

2nd graders who break out in to song and dance singing "I'm sexy and I know it!"

If it weren't for moments like these through out my day I might go crazy.

I can tell you the exact day Izzie changed from a baby to a toddler. It was 4 days ago on her 13 month birthday. I mean it, I knew it just by the way she was acting. She was so whiny and getting in to ev-er-y-thing. And I thought this is it... here comes my toddler. And it's true. It hasn't been the same since. My little 13 month old stink bug still isn't walking. It still freaks her out. But she can crawl like nobody's business. I'm not too worried about her not walking yet. She'll do it when she's ready.

She can say, hi, bye, dada, mama, uh uh and she makes a barking type sound when she sees a dog. It's not really a bark... she just makes a really distinct sound when she sees a dog.

She loves animals. She pats her legs to try and get them to come to her. It's so cute.

Just yesterday she learned where her toes are. I can say "Izzie where are your toes?" and she can point to them.

She'll give you hugs and pat your back and say, "awww"

And some time within these past four days she's learned how to crawl up on to the couch. Nothing is safe anymore.

She's been doing this for awhile but if you say "yay!" She'll clap her hands.

If she's doing anything she's not supposed to do... like say playing with the toilet brush... she'll say "uh uh" and shake her whole body side to side. She can't shake her head no yet. She she just shakes her whole body. It's pretty funny.

If she likes whatever she is eating she'll really loudly say "umm umm yumm" and then lick her plate.

And the not so fun things... if she gets mad at you for taking something away, or if you aren't paying attention to her like she wants she'll bang her head on the floor. I'm not sure how to get her to stop doing this. I've been trying to ignore it. Oh and I think we might have a biter on our hands. Sometimes she bites too. Oy vey.

I guess you have to take the good with the bad though. Oh well. I love watching her grow up!

Valentine's Day

Troy and I like to keep things low key on Valentines Day.
For the majority of the day we had to spend love day apart because of conflicting work/school schedules.
So we decided to show a little love solidarity by getting special Valentine's shirts to wear.
What do Troy and I love right now?


And nothing says Valentine's Day like zombie t-shirts, right?

Underneath all of the brains & brains on his shirt it says, "zombie meal time."
My shirt says, "If I were a zombie I'd eat you first" inside a big pink brain.

We're so romantic.

Troy was able to sneak away from work for a little bit to take me and Izzie on a mini date to our second latest obession.
Fro-yo from Orange Leaf.
Have you been? It's divine.
It's down the street from our house.

I hope everyone spent V-day doing things they love with those they love!

let her eat cake

So we're going to pretend like I haven't lost my camera again and I've gotten around to posting about Izzie's birthday already...mmmk?

Remember how Izzie's birthday cake smashing was an epic fail? Picture my shy baby girl in front of 20+ of our closest family and friends with a cake in front of her... frozen stiff in fear. That girl wouldn't even touch her cake due to stage fright. I even force fed her a little frosting hoping that might encourage her a bit. Nope. She spit it out.

Uncle Nicholas turned 17 this weekend and we had a little party for him. Thank goodness for camera phones. I think Izzie' likes birthdays... just not hers.

Yes she did eat straight out of the ice cream carton

Loving Nicholas' cake

Because every one knows that cake tastes better with a little toe jam

messy girl!

Sink bath @ grandma's = cake success
