currently obsessed with:


how could you not be- right?

vz
velzy is up for anything.  she is always ready to have a good time, she is my yes girl.  i can't really think of a time when i asked her if she wanted to do something and she didn't say yes enthusiastically.  i think she has a photographic memory- maybe all three year olds do?  she remembers the most random things from so long ago.  it's interesting what things make an impression on little minds.  but then again, she can't remember the letters of the alphabet, so maybe she doesn't have a photographic memory?  all of the sudden, she talks like a big kid using phrases that are so funny to hear coming out of a little mouth.  she is a great big sister/mom to ivy.  she is turing into a fish (floaties around her arms always), jumping in (over and over and over) and swimming with the eleven year olds at the pool.  she loves to sing and thinks she is ariel, constantly trying to sing like her, it's hysterical.  the new way to occupy her in the car is wee sing cd's-  she will sing 50 (no exaggeration at all) songs at the top of her lungs while we drive to her grandparents house.  i hear "wanna play a game?" all the time, the girl loves games.  and if you give her a smile you are sure to get one back, which makes my day.

 and then there is ivy,  who i have been trying to get a good picture of for a while.  the girl is seriously beautiful, but when i get out the camera things do not come together, she looks away or makes funny smiles.  but i will keep trying.  ivy makes me laugh.  she does the randomest things at any given time that make me smile.  she sings a lot also- it's perfect, she usually starts singing "i am a child of god," "i love to see the temple" or "we are a happy family" at tense moments, like she knows it is what i need to hear to cool me off.  she loves to get into things and makes everyone nervous when we don't know where she is or what she is getting into.  she loves her baby dolls.  "i wanna watch you" is what i hear at my feet whenever i cook anything so she sits on the counter and helps a lot.  her legs (which are not so chunky anymore- sad!) are so cute and hairy.  she loves to run around naked, but also loves to pick out her clothes and get dressed in the morning.  her thumb tastes like strawberries, and she is willing to let you taste it.  she is also a fish, but refuses to use any type of floaties, and has to have you hold her so she can swim and loves to be thrown between people in the pool.  she is still the snuggliest girl, and always makes me feel like a good mom.

and that is all i can type, they are waking up.  time to go swim!

Smiths said...

Why you and your girls gotta be so far away? I can't wait for these "grown ups" to play and get into trouble with each other at the beach. See you in January- right? Not turning all Californian on me are you?
