Has any child ever looked so sweet? Addy also said her first full, complete sentence the other day. We were sitting on the couch together hanging out like little buddies, and she turns to me and says (with perfect grammer I might add)...

"You are my mommy; I am Addy".

I nearly died. How sweet is that? And how smart!!!! Seroiusly, I know everyone thinks their kid is smart, but come on, you have to admit that this was pretty advanced for a not quite 2 year old. Oh bless her little love heart.

I'm not only so pleased with and her sweet Easter outfit, but the fact that I managed to pull off this hairdo! PRECIOUS!

Thursday, March 13, 2008 gimme some candy!!!!!!

This is a bad time of year to have sworn off candy and chocolate (and really anything that tastes good). It has only been approx. 71 hours and 4 mintues since I had sugar and I swear I'm dying. And starving.

I don't think I'm doing myself any favors here, but I just had to post my "sugar wish list"...mmmmmmmm.

March is an especially bad time for a diet, because my all time fave candy in the world only comes around once a year...Cadbury Mini Eggs. This is what I imagine heaven would taste like.

If I get really desperate, I may just pull a Carol Johnson (mom) and start eating straight out of the sugar bowl - although I prefer sugar cubes myself. Horses are no dummies.

I like to eat apples and bananas

No, actually, I just like to eat donuts. Let's see....who's child is this?

It's really hard to be mad at her for being such a mess when she looks so hilarious and cute. She looks very serious here because it took mom awhile before she just gave up and gave her the whole donut. Bad mommy!

Food has been a serious challenge in our house lately. I'm trying to be good and stop eating like a wild hyena, Addy will hardly eat anything, and both Ammon and I have given up cooking because we're too blasted tired to do anything beyond cereal. MAYBE some ramen on a good day.

SO. That being said, you'll understand why I caved and let Addy have the whole chocolate donut (that and the 2 yr old tantrums have begun - holy hannah something evil has possessed my child), and, why she ate ONLY THIS for dinner tonight:

I wish I were kidding. I tried an orange, a nummy hamburger, pretzels, juice, grape-nuts, etc. In the end, only using her little fingers as a scooper to have I swear a cup of some good old Heinz ketchup would make her happy. Please don't call CPS on me! I really am trying to be a good mom that encourages nutrition! =)

Mmmmmmm cake

Well this is certainly interesting. Not sure these descriptions all fit me, but I do love my lemon cake.

You Are a Lemon Cake

Strong, sexy, and overpowering.

You know who you are, and you're not afraid to show the world your fabulous self.

You're confident, charming, and extremely popular.

Ohhhh chicken lips and lizard hips

These two pictures make me laugh so hard. Addy just looks so confused! This is sweet Ella who had a hat party with Addy on Oscar night.


So you know how I've been complaining since we moved here that the weather is insane? It was 75 at the zoo and I have a sweet little sunburn to prove it. 16 hours later, I woke up to SNOW on the ground, and the temperature gauge reading 20 degrees. EH? Do we live on the moon or what?

Addy and Daddy looking at the horsies/zebra's.

This is Adeline imitating the polar bear licking his chops. And yes, that is me doing the same. Sorry.

Sorry, Lindsay, but camels are seriously unattractive animals. And, not a little frightening. I swear to you one of them was absolultely staring right at me.

Here we are, having our staring contest.

Addy watching the penguins intently.

And the best part of zoo day: watching the other parents slowly clue in to the pair of otters that were "playing". "Wow, kids, look at that! Those otters are really having a good time...hmmm, that one really doesn't want to let go....ummmm.....OHHHHH......KIDS!!! We are going to see the polar bears now!!!" You could tell the ones that weren't quite ready for the "birds and the bees", or "playful otters" discussion.

Annnnnnnd in other news:

Addy's vocabulary is growing exponentially, probably thanks to the older kids she hangs out with during the week. My new favorites are "Happy Happy Day!", "Funny Mommy!", and "Poopy Doggies. No no no no no! Bad dog!". I love how she announces everything she's doing too. "I running!", or "I sit down" which usually sounds like she's saying something else.

She's also started talking along when we say prayers. It's very sweet. Random note - she just streaked naked down the hall post-bath cackling her head off. She must be my child. =) Have a great night!
