Carolina Grace 2 years...going on 15!

Jason and I were just discussing that we don't keep track of all the silly and amazing things that Carolina comes up with these days and that we really should! Mostly because she is hysterical, but also because she is the smartest 2 year old we have come across (we are completely biased, but we are okay with that!)

So I thought I would do a post with some of the Carolina quotes and happenings of the past week (that I can remember). There are so many that wish I always had my pen handy!

Carolina quotes:

"Mommy, can we buy a set of stairs for the condo? I really want an upstairs. Then we could put my playroom up there"

"Mommy, slow down (while I was driving her to daycare). There is a big truck coming and you need to be careful. Mommy, do you have your seatbelt on? Mommy, Whoa! Slow down, be careful, don't go too fast, we don't want an accident with the firetrucks and policemen"

"Daddy, you need to get your butt back here! We miss you daddy, we miss you crazy daddy"

"Mommy, my katie (babydoll) spit up 3 times today and needs to go to the doctor right away!"

"Memphis, you are making bad choices lately and I am going to put you in timeout in the bathroom"

"Mommy, can I wear my short sleeve pants today?" (i.e. shorts)

"Mommy, you better be careful or the baby is going to fall out of your belly"

There are so many more, these are just some of the ones that I can recall.

Her pretend play is also ever expanding and becoming so complex. She has full on adventures with her dolls and toys throughout the house. She will even take her play cell phone, go into her bedroom, shut the door, and ask for privacy while she calls Greyson from school [what!?! - her conversation are very cute too (i listen in of course) - she asks him what he is playing with and where he lives, haha!]. She carries around her purses all the time and goes grocery shopping with her stuffed animals, and also takes them to the doctors, etc. She is also very much into music (and always has been) and we throw crazy dance parties in the living room most nights! The girl could dance all night long I think if I let her!

We are so proud of her (and she will also tell you that if you ask her) because she is fully potty trained with the exception of bedtime! Thank goodness! Now onto getting her to stop sucking her thumb! Our next battle :) I think Jason should own that one since I solely tackled potty training! ha!

We love you Carolina and love being a part of your world! It is so much fun!

One belly shot for the record....

33 weeks - Mommy & Madelyn!
I haven't exactly been into belly shots this time around (given I have been without a camera and without Jason to shoot any good ones)- but I thought for Madelyn's sake I would post at least one!
Happy Turkey Week!

The Peanut Posing for Daddy

The Peanut picked out a Christmas outfit yesterday while shopping - she fell in love with this little dress and wanted to take pictures and send them to Daddy. I only have my camera on my phone so they didn't come out so well - but you can see how excited she was to pose for Daddy in her new Christmas outfit. She is getting so big! Ahhh!
