Camden was sick last week and fell asleep in Matt's lap in the recliner. When I woke him to carry him up to bed, he complained that his hand felt funny. I explained to him that his hand had probably fallen asleep, since it was smashed in such an awkward position on Daddy. He looked at me, completely bewildered, but didn't say a word.
When he climbed into bed a few minutes later, he asked, "How does a hand fall asleep?! It doesn't even have a face!"
He insisted on wearing a tie to dinner the other night. He wanted to know if he looked fancy.
Macey liked to randomly declare things that she likes during the day. Below are my favorite declarations, all said in a one hour period:
"I like toothpaste."
"I like dirt."
"I like Daddy."
Macey has started saying "hold you" when she wants to be held, which I find completely adorable. Yesterday, when I was cooking dinner, she approached me and said, "Mommy, can May May hold you?" The visual of my two-year-old picking me up was hilarious, but since I knew what she was intending to say, I carried her instead.
My girl is nothing if not persistent. She has started asking more and more questions and her voice gets progressively higher as she asks her question. When she wants to someone to play with her, she doesn't take no for an answer. I was cooking dinner and heard this from the playroom a few nights ago:
"Mommy, you wanna play choo choos?" (I replied that I was busy cooking dinner.)
"Mommy and May May are gonna play choo choos." (I guess she figured that a simple rephrasing of the question might get a better result. Once again, I declined her invitation.)
Not to be deterred, she politely said, "Mommy, you wanna play choo choos? Please, Mommy."
Of course, she won. Because who can say no to that?!
Macey likes to say "Do it" in a very New York mobster sounding voice when she wants something done. While it's quite entertaining, I have to ask her to rephrase politely so she doesn't sound quite so gangster.
One of her favorite phrases lately is "Of course!"
Me: "Macey, would you like to play dinosaurs with me?"
Macey: "Of course!"
Finally, she likes to prove that she's two going on twelve with one of her favorite new words: "Cool!"
There's no taming the hair on this one.
A picture is worth a thousand words...
