Some Random Photos

Hanging out in the ball pit at gymnastics

Just reading books with Daddy.

The other day we told Eden it was time to come have a snack so she headed over to the table, then stopped, turned to Brad and said, "Come on!" (not that clearly of course).  Her speech has really improved lately and she says tons of words.  I think her favourite is "Here go", meaning here you go.  We hear that one a lot as she hands us things.  And my favourite is when she says all done it comes out like "Gah Gum".  Lately the word No has been making a larger presence in our house though, becoming a fast favourite of hers.

And here are a couple ballet photos for you... the class was super adorable from beginning to end.

Today in the car we were coming home from preschool and I told Catie that I missed her while she was gone.  She said, "Don't worry, I'll always have time for you".

The other day we were getting ready for gymnastics so I laid out Catie's clothes and then left her to get dressed.  She came upstairs clothed and we headed off.  We got home and she went to use the potty, when she was done she called out, "Mommy, I can't find my knickers (underwear), they're not in my pants".  Yeah, she forgot to put her knickers on this morning... oops.

What Eden Wears

I talk a lot about how Eden is so different than Catie and one of those ways is when it comes to clothing.

Catie really doesn't care about what she wears, she has very little desire to dress herself and I still help her most of the time.  Eden though... she is obsessed with clothes and often puts together interesting outfits with what she finds laying around, mostly with very little help from me.

So we start with her favourite winter hat.  She loves this thing and wears it all the time and every single time she puts it on backwards.

This one is great, the first layers is some pajamas, then some of Catie's socks, Eden's dress from the day before, a snap bracelet and some necklaces.

Blurry, but still worth showing.  Again, pajamas, Catie's jeans, and her ballet skirt.  Notice how much too long those jeans are?

The winter hat comes back, her coat, I'm sure she's wearing a t shirt under there and some jeans, then she has some pajama pants that she put on herself and pulled them half way up.

A fairly normal outfit except for Daddy's socks that go all the way up to her knees.

Pants, a dress, a sweater and that blurry blue is the slippers she just took off.

I saved you from the many of her wearing Catie's underwear.
Love this girl and her crazy outfits.

Eden's First Hair Cut

Allright, so this happened a really long time ago and I'm just now getting to it.

Eden's hair had reached a common point among toddlers... the baby mullet.  The ends in the back curled up when wet though and were super cute and so I was trying to avoid how extreme the mullet had become.  Others started commenting on it though so I finally admitted that it was time to do something about it.

Here's a not very good before

And a not awesome after.  It's had a little time to grow now and the ends still curl so I'm happy.
