Little Monkey

Just a random yet very typical picture of our little monkey. Shirtless, check. Hat, check. Somethin in my mouth, check. Complete mess, check.

I am a princess. All girls are.

So at the end of March my little niece Lexi had a princess party to celebrate her birthday. I didn't have a princess costume but I did have a tutu and a few pink things. So here's my little princess.

There were lots a streamers an balloons which Elizabeth was loving! She'd grab them all in a bunch, shake them like mad around her head, and giggle like there's no tomorrow.
Obviously there were also lots of other kids around. I always thought she did really well with other kids because I never saw her get upset. While we were all enjoying ourselves on the floor playing I witnessed something hilarious. She was playing with this phone. She then picked up another toy. At that point a 3 year old came her way and yanked one out of her hands. She looked at the kid like are you serious? Then she thought whatever, I've still got this phone and continued playing. The 3 year old then attempted to take the phone as well. Oh no, that was not happening. If you know Elizabeth you know she has a death grip and that phone wasn't going anywhere. The kid would pull it her way and then Etta would pull it back and smile. She was having more and more fun playing this "game" as this other kid was getting more and more frustrated. Finally the 3 year old started crying and ran away. Mostly this was funny and a good sign that Etta is easy going, level headed, determined, and strong. Hopefully it just doesn't turn into her being a bully. So I guess now I'll have to listen to see if other kids are crying, not her.

All in all we had such a great time with little friends, cousins, and papa. Thanks Christy!

Brace Yourselves People

Here come a slew of posts the likes of which you've never seen before. Be careful because they may be everyday and contain levels of adorability that you're not prepared for. Here we go...

We'll start with a small dose. Etta's only marginally cute in these pics compared to her full capacity to wow you. This is her first sippie cup experience. She's can totally do it, but chooses not to. Typically she plays with it and pinches the spout therefor taking away any anitspill technology and rendering it useless. As a result we don't do as much sippie time as we should.

By the way these are from March...March people, I know.
