velzy is a little mamma, she loves to take care of any and everyone. it's amazing the rules that she remembers and enforces on others- wish she would listen to them all herself sometimes, but honestly, she is a really good kid. she is sensitive, this morning she cried while watching the little mermaid 2 (not to be confused with the little mermaid or the little mermaid ariel's beginning) when she thought someone was going to get hurt, it's sort of sweet. she can eat a whole carton of blueberries in 5 minutes flat. she loves dress up but in neglected in that area as her mom and dad have a fear of princesses, all she wants is some of those lame plastic mini high heals with the princesses, maybe someday. she has pretty much stopped twisting and pulling out her hair, all because she wants her hair to be "long and pretty" and she comments on anyone who has pretty hair. the 10 year old across the street from us, jasper, is her new best friend, they play all afternoon and she loves every minute of it. she has got an amazing memory and forgets nothing that has been promised to her- especially treats. she makes friends fast but misses her old friends and told me the other day that she wants all of her friends to come to the park and play and then named off a bunch of her friends. she can't remember what state she is living in. started sunbeams, which she didn't want to do because she loves nursery so much- treats, songs, playdough- what is not to love?, but she didn't want to leave her class when church was done yesterday so i think she likes it. and my favorite thing about velzy these days is that she randomly spurts out "i love you mommy" and i love her too.
ivy is a parrot- she loves to sing and copy whatever you say, her little vocabulary cracks me up. she always takes my hand and tugs saying "mom, come on." she is a copycat, typical second child? she can do anything the older kids can do, often times just as good. she loves to be held and snuggle while sucking her thumb, when she is cold i unzip my sweatshirt and she cozies into me to stay warm, i love it. it is funny how much of a snuggler momma's girl she can be one second then be so independent the next. she is a fighter, especially over baby stuff. luke picked her up from nursery yesterday and she was battling over a baby stroller. that is because she is baby obsessed, she is so into babies right now. she walks around with hers saying sleepy, hungy, drink, or poopy, then takes care of them. she is very strong willed, some dad at the park today told me that because she is a aries, whatever. she loves to play games- her favorite is to put something in her hand and say "hand" then you have to guess what is in her hand, sounds lame, but it's fun. it is so cool to watch her learn because at her age you can literally see the wheels turning and it is funny to hear her start to talk about everything she is putting together in her head. she is scared of facial hair and has the greatest grin.
and there you have it.
