because i can't press pause and enjoy these little women at the ages and stages that they are at forever i have to blog about it. i love lots of things about these little ones right now. i will spare you the negative little things like of ivy's ear piercing screech, hitting problem and lack of listening skills or velzy's whine and not being able to hold her shi-shi till she gets to the potty when she first wakes up and after naps. opps, didn't mean to just write that. i know that i live on east street right now and that's why i really try not to dwell on the minor annoyances, cause that is all they really are is minor. and now, on to the good stuff...
the little bug:
she's cute, like really cute. but she does not smile for the camera, ever. she will have the best, hugest grins and as soon as there is a camera around she shuts them away. doesn't matter, they are seared into my brain and i will never forget her grin. she is adventurous and is a wonderer, loves to just go. i spend a lot of time chasing down the little midget with the blond mullet flowing behind her who is obsessed with shoes, especially these rain boots which i love:
she loves to be thrown, sometimes if she is grumpy i will take her outside and throw her up in the air and the insta-smile appears. and she is still really into the water, she charges which i love, but it scares me too. she can take a lickin and keep on tickin though, nothing much phases her. but she is still a snuggler, the only time she sucks her thumb is when she is being snuggled or is going to sleep. it's actually really cute. she loves to climb and breaks into random solo dance sessions all over the place, which make me laugh so hard. and just wants to be like velzy in any way that she can.
oh look, a little smile.
the little mamma:
velzy is a little momma. she loves to take care of things and is really aware of feelings and is super sympathetic, it's sweet. i am convinced that she could pretty much live without me, except for the fact that she needs me to wipe her bum, she can do it all on her own and take care of ivy. she wakes around 6 everyday and stands at her door and yells "mommy!" which wakes up her sister. i am still looking for the snooze button that i could have sworn i had on her order form, haven't found it yet. cleaning is fun to this kid, strange. she is obedient, most of the time. when i ask her to come she will yell "ok mom, me coming!" and she actually comes running, which i wonder how long that will last but i will take it as long as she will do it. she loves her friends, a lot. and although she could sit and watch movies all day, she loves to be outside and is so into animals. we go on gecko hunts with her amazing gecko catcher dad and she loves to catch sand turtles, as well as any other creeping thing. we have funny little conversations, like how she tells me how little tractors are "so tute" (cute, c's often times sound like t's). she has the most amazing memory, it's crazy.
like i said there is a lot to love right now, i will think of 20 things more to add as soon as i go to bed. like how yesterday i was putting them down for their naps and ivy laid on velzy's bed so i just let them both lay together to see what would happen. after leaving and going outside to spy on them through the window it was fun to watch them both get up and giggle, wrestle for a minute then both go grab books and read to each other.
they just make me smile (most of the time).
