Hannah Update

I know that I have blogged a lot this past week and I apologize for that. I know that a lot of people are on vacation these days and busy with summer fun, so I was trying to tone down the whole blogging thing because it didn't seem like people were checking our blog as much, but since I did a Scott update, I figured I better do a Hannah update as well. Then I will stop blogging as much for a little while except for "Fun Friday."

So first of all, I'm not one of those mothers who puts makeup on their daughters and dresses her up, etc. However, Hannah has been so into my makeup lately, and I wanted to see what her long lashes would look like with mascara, so I put some makeup on her. She really liked it...typical girl. Here is a picture. Please excuse the blotch job on her eyes. It's extremely hard to do eye liner on a one year old.

Yesterday Scott, Hannah, and I went to the Veteran's Memorial swimming park. Hannah LOVES going down that big white slide on our laps. I think she's a bit of a dare devil.

I like reading other people's posts about cute quotes that their kids say. I get excited for the day that I can post cute quotes that Hannah will say. She is getting pretty good at forming sentences these days, but most of them aren't too original. So here is an example of some of the stuff she says to me.

***Side Note: I don't like boogers. They gross me out, but let's face it, everyone has them. Whether you're one that uses a tissue or one that just uses your finger and wipes it on whatever is closest to you, we all pick our noses. Anytime I see a child or an adult with a booger, I feel my stomach start to get queasy....especially if they end up sticking that booger in their mouth....then I start to gag. That and poop are seriously the sickest things on this earth to me.
The only exception to me not getting grossed out is when my daughter has a booger. If she has something in her nose, I have to get it. It's like my finger is drawn to her nose anytime I see something coming out of it. I guess I just feel so bad for her because she is somewhat helpless when it comes to getting things out of her nose and it really doesn't bother me to do it.

So, back to her quotes. I was trying to get a booger out of her nose the other day, and she said to me very loudly,

"Don't Do Dat!"

Oh boy! Hannah is normally a very polite little girl. She often says "please" and "thank you" and even recently started saying "Excuse me" after she burps or when she wants to get around me. However, she has also started to be very demanding. I started laughing really hard after she told me to "Don't Do Dat!" because it seemed like such strong words to come out of such a tiny body. I've since realized that I need to watch what I say because I'm pretty sure that she got that phrase from me telling her to stop doing something. I should probably be more polite to her.

Anyway, then tonight she had a book in her hand and she was giving it to me. As soon as I was about to grab it from her, she pulled it back to herself teasingly and said,

"No. Dat's mine!"

What happened to my sweet little baby? Oh well, the terrible twos are quickly approaching. She is still cute, and I can't help but laugh at her when she tries to boss me around.

Holy smokes those are some lashes. I'm so envious! I can't believe how fast she is growing up. I clearly remember when Allie learned the word, "mine." I was hoping she'd never learn it...unfortunately it was bound to happen. Allie was two when she started saying it, so Hannah is learning pretty quickly. Guess you gotta really watch what you say now. She's a smarty.

Ha,Ha,Ha!!! I know what it feels like to be bossed around by a toddler. My favorite is: "Don't say that to me"! You're right- such strong words out of a little person. I too sometimes wonder where Madison's manners have gone because at times I would like to get them out of hiding. When she's not around, I can't help but to laugh. Our girls are too cute.

Madison misses Hannah and asks for her all the time. It was really nice to see you all. Hopefully we'll see eachother before the next reunion. Hugs and kisses to Hannah.

don't slow down the blogs. I love reading about you guys. Hannah is beautiful. That is so funny that you put make up on her. And, she is a typical first born, very strong willed and usually bossy. I can't believe how brave she is. What a little dare devil. You guys are in for a wild, fun ride with her. I am so glad you are coming down for the wedding. I love her adorable swim suit. Love you guys. Mom

She is gorgeous. Thanks to you I decided to put some make up on Montana today, but forgot to take a picture. I think it was more fun for me than her.
Yes, the harsh phrases break your heart. She hit me once, and I about cried. It's so hard to see the temper side of them. The worst for me to hear is "No, Mommy." That's like the ultimate in defiance to me. Plus she is saying, "I don't want it." A lot. That's frustrating.

Hannah's eyes and eyelashes are GORGEOUS! I think all of your kids will have gorgeous eyes, because both you and Scott do. I think Hannah learned 'mine' and 'no' early because of her cousins (and uncles ha ha)-- but not from my children of course (em em).
And, just wait, you may have a (disgusting) boy like mine who licks his boogers- GROSS.
