You MUST Chase Your Dreams, For Your Dreams Will Not Chase You

Well Nolee was sick yesterday
(cold, congestion & possible ear infection)
so I got to spend the day
snuggling & soothing

I even got to experience
her falling asleep in my arms
while I rocked
in a quiet house

Which is something
I haven't done in so long
it was so nice
and I tried to ingrain that moment
in my brain as I realize those moments
will be so few & far between with her getting bigger :(.

On another note
Nolee's vocabulary is expanding
in leaps & bounds lately
and it is so funny to see more of her personality
coming out in actual words

She has taken to singing
and breaks out in song all the time
her favorites are
"Tinkle Tinkle" (i.e. Twinkle Twinkle)
"Hoppy Birthday"
& "Bus" (i.e. Wheels on the Bus)

She will now tell us "Second"
when we ask her to come here
so she can finish up whatever she is working on

And my new favorite
"Shhhh mouse sleeping"
...we told her the other day
we were going to try to be as
quiet as a mouse...:)

She also uses "hi" at the most random times
like when she knows she is doing something wrong
and gets caught
she will look up you with her I know I'm so cute face
and say "Hi!"
like when you find her in your bathroom
in your drawer
with your chapstick....
all over her face

She is also becoming afraid of different things
she is afraid of the dark
"funder" (thunder)
& all the scary masks we saw on Halloween

If she sees any of these she will
immediately become a spider monkey
and attach to you and close her eyes

She also has taken to crawling in our bed at night
when she gets scared
so now I awaken to two sets of feet in my face
and smile

  1. Awww, I hope that she is feeling better. I have to admit that I don't like it when they are sick but the snuggle time is great and you are right, trying to imprint that on the brain is so important.
    She sounds like she is becoming quite the little lady with her vocabulary, I love that stage when they start learning words, you just have to smile no matter what. :)
