She loves to play with her tent, and screams with joy when Daddy joins her in the tent. Of course, she is allowed to come and go in and out of the tent, but not daddy. He is supposed to sit there.
This AM, after dumping her food on the floor and having both parents strictly tell her "no", she said "sorry". Um, where did she get this? I know she has learned to say "sorry" after her biting episodes at Elaine's. WOW. Good memory. She also tells us "welcome" after we say "thank you" to her. Fun girl.
I also overheard her this AM in her crib, after not taking her AM nap. She was clearly singing 'Are you Sleeping", as well as the "ABC" song. I could her her singing the tunes of each song, and the "now I know my ABC's" part of the "ABC" song. It doesn't surprise me. She insists that we listen to Buddy Holly's "Not Fade Away" every.damn.day. when we get into mommy's car. Sometimes mommy goes along with it, but sometimes mommy can't take any more "bop bop bop bop's". I think that's the reason K loves the song: the "bops". That's also how she tells me she wants to hear the song: "mommy, bop bop! Pease? Mommy, bop bop!" How do I say no to a girl who knows her musical tastes and says "please?".
Her latest hoarding adventures include her coloring. We've been working hard on not eating the crayons (although Treble has taken care of a few crayons for us lately). We've had a few step backs with the biting and eating of the crayon, but so far, she has loved it. We keep her "markers" (crayons, my dear) in a fruit jar with a lid, and she loves to dump them out, put them in, lather and repeat. I encourage her to "rub rub' the crayon across the paper, and she's getting the hang of it. She switches hands like nobodies business but that's OK. As long as she keeps the scribbles to the paper, it's all good. This latest adventure has kept our girl entertained for hours this past weekend. She also enjoys showing us the crayons, and in her own way, requesting the color names. She especially seems to enjoy the color "purple!" - as she sat and screamed the word last night for about 30 minutes straight.
Ahh, Keifer, we love you so much!
Putting the crayons back in her jar (and notice the puppy backback she INSISTED on wearing all night last night?)Hanging out in the window: all 3 "kids"
