Eva LOVES piggy back rides or as she calls them “happy rides”. I have no idea why she calls them that but it’s the cutest thing to me. Eva has become more of a handful recently but along with her feistiness comes a whole lot of personality that I just love! Tonight, she said to me, “Mommy, tan we det a wow wow?” I said yes, just to appease her and she said, “Yay! Tan da wow wow sweep in my bed wiff me?” Oh my freaking cuteness! She keeps all of us laughing with her constant annoucements of “I farted!” And her little “ta-da!” any time she does just about anything. She even chastises herself when she gets caught doing something she shouldn’t be doing like jumping on the couch. She shakes her finger and says, “No dumping!”. Or when she was potty training and had an accident she would say, “No jelly bean and no panties!” Jelly beans were her reward for going potty. She’s a serious crack up!
I finally decided I would give her a little trim. That first haircut is always the hardest for me to convince myself of. I just evened it out but it ended up being a good 4 inches! I love it and she does too. Her nursery leader told me that the first thing she said when she walked into nursery on Sunday was, “Look I dot a hairtut!”
She’s growing so fast and I feel like having 3 older siblings has made her grow up so much faster but we are really enjoying this phase of our lives. I love that she only wants mommy to sing to her and tuck her in at night even though she loves daddy like crazy. It’s our thing and I treasure that she loves it as much as I do. This is her birthday month and in a couple of weeks she will be a big 3 year old! She’ll always be our baby though.
