Etta Too!

So Etta's just been so funny lately, she cracks me up all day long. So I wanted to sit and remember some of the cute Etta-isms she comes up with. (the outfits are pretty funny too)

-Her big things now is "too." Etta too, etta too! She's started saying for everyone now though. She's eating too! She's washing her hair...mama poo too! That's sham-poo.

-She loves ring around the rosy and wants everyone in on it. "Rosy, rosy...gogo too, daddy too, brother too, dolly too!

-She's started collecting things and hiding them all together. The other night in bed she was asking for water. I said I didn't have any and she'd have to drink milk instead. She got up and started saying, "fine da oowa, fine da oowa," walks into her closet behind her small dresser and comes back with two sippys she's been hiding back there.

-We were reading a magazine the other day and came across a cover girl ad with eva longoria looking radiantly beautiful and she started pointing and saying mommy mommy! Bless her.

-She'll go over to Liam and tickle his toes which she thinks is fall down hilarious.

-When your cooking her food she'll tell you..."fine da bol, where da poon, nee da cup, mama...straw, straw peas, straw peas!"

-When you change her diaper she says eww, poo poos, gross, gross etta...yucky.

-She will very purposefully drop, throw, or spill something then look at you all sad and say, "uh-oh, oh no, oh noooo!" When she genuinely has an accident she will say whoops!

-Instead of keeping her clips in her hair she's now constantly blowing her hair out of her face.

-We have a book of temples that she loves to read all the time and the other day we were driving down university ave and she started saying, "mornmy, mornmy!" I was so confused. I realized after a while that she was saying moroni but I couldn't figure out how she knew where the temple was because you can't see it from there...but upon driving back that way I found out you can see moroni just barely peeking over the trees. Amazing.

-She absolutely loses her mind over fruit snacks.

-She still loves putting on shoes although she mostly moved on from her patent mary janes to her sparkly jellies as a favorite. Yesterday she brought my shoes out which she usually puts on and prances around in happily, but this time she was getting so upset handing me the shoes. I asked what she wanted and she said mommy too! So I put them on, she looked at me satisfied, and just turned and walked away.

-She loves her friends! Even when you hear a bump from our neighbors wall she'll start screaming addy addy addy!

-She loves, "faces!" Which of coarse means funny faces. She pulls her lips to the sides and sticks out her tongue and anything you do will receive roaring laughter but if you make a face and cross your eyes she will totally lose it.

-She thinks she's invisible when she closes her eyes.

-Etta is actually a really good hider. She'll go in the closet behind our clothes or under her covers and wait there completely still and quiet until you come get her, no matter how long!

-Every morning she pulls down the blanket over her blinds and sits in her bed and reads or plays with her "toy" which isn't all toys but one very specific one from Ikea (just like snacks can't be just anything, snack only means fruit snack) when you walk in she just looks up and says, "Hi mommy...where's daddy?" If it gets really late she'll bang on the door to be released. :)

-Etta always wants to try it try it anytime you're eating anything. When she likes it she'll say mooor peas. If she doesn't she'll say yike it (like it) while she shaking her head no.

-Speaking of the l's that are y's, one of her favorite things is "yips." Which is chapstick.

I'm sure there's more but they'll have to wait seeing as this is already way too long. So until later these our some of our favorite recent things about Etta. We love you bug!

I laughed the whole time reading this post. She has such a distinct personality and I love it! She has certainly learned how to communicate to her liking, and those outfits she dresses herself in are adorable. Love all the words she says.
