Top Ten Lists

Just for fun I thought I would post top ten lists of little known facts about the girls. Feel free to post your top ten list in comments :)

Jordyn's List
1. She will try to say any word you say to her.
2. When she hurts herself she wants to bury her head in your shoulder and bite you and kick her feet.
3. She loves animals and makes a mean tiger growl.
4. She goes from laughing to a loud, high pitch scream immediately, there is no happy medium.
5. She eats a lot of what she likes and won't touch what she doesn't want.
6. She hates to have her face wiped and screams and wiggles the whole time.
7. She got her first set of molars before her third set of front teeth.
8. When she eats she likes to put her foot on the table. We are trying to break her of this habit before anyone notices.
9. She loves people and will cuddle with just about anyone.
10. She also flocks to cameras and loves saying "cheese" for the camera.

India's List
1. She still sucks the 2 middle fingers on her right hand.
2. She has way too much rhythm in her hips for a 3 year old.
3. Fish sticks have been the breakfast of choice for the past month.
4. She loves to help put the groceries away.
5. Her manners are so sweet...today I told her we were having a birthday lunch for her and she said, "Awww, thank you Mommy"
6. Of course she also told a little boy at the playground that he had a runny nose and he ran and told his dad.
7. She is a great (although bossy) little mommy to Jordyn and her friends.
8. After she is finished eating she loves to put her own plate in the sink.
9. If there are sweets around don't turn your back. She has been caught taking bites when no one is watching.
10. When we go places she needs to have her purse and cell phone.

Pre-Party


Breakfast at the little table


"Say Cheese"


Trying to wash her hands by herself



Monkey Ball Toss


Pin the Tail on the Tiger


Goody Bags


Animal Picture Frames


The Jungle Cake

This was the scene in the house before India and Jordyn woke up from their naps...and before guests arrived. India was so excited we could barely get her to lay down for her nap.

India's Party

Our little house successfully held everyone for India's birthday party. She was so excited to have all of her friends here. I can tell you that her favorite parts were singing "Happy Birthday" and eating ice cream. It is so much fun now that she is old enough to understand what is going on. Thank you to everyone who came and those who wanted to be here.

Not to leave Jordyn out, here is a video from lunch today.

First Day of Spring






Although the weather has been in the 50s and 60s all week, you would never know it on this first day of spring. I don't know if you can tell by the picture, but the 6 or so inches of snow we got yesterday is melting leaving behind icicles on the branches it is really pretty!
We tried our best to amuse ourselves inside....playing in our toybox, having snacks,and taking a bath in Mommy and Daddy's big tub. India wouldn't let us turn on the bubbles, "Nooooo, I'm afraid of the bubbles!" Of course we did anyway and she screamed while Jordyn laughed and said "Bubbles!"

We also made our first trip to the zoo this year, but Mommy forgot to put the memory card back into the camera. OOOOPPPPS!

One more week until Spring Break!!! YIPPPEEEE!!!!

Safari Party


Everyone is welcome at India's 3rd Birthday party on Saturday March 27 at 3:00 PM. At her request we are doing an animal theme and she is SOOOOOO excited! What a great way to kick off our spring break.

Spunky Jordyn



Jordyn has been a very eager potty goer. She is the first to come running when asked if anyone needs to go potty. She has had one success, but we are just so happy that she's interested. India has been a great teacher! I must say that the bathroom is an interesting place these days. India is dumping her little potty into the big potty all by herself. If this doesn't happen soon enough Jordyn is right there to help make a mess.


You turn your back for 10 seconds....

Fashion Expert



Today for the first time India did not like what we had picked out for her to wear. As we tried to dress her she said, "I don't want to wear that Mommy, I want to wear this." We must say she did pick an outfit that matched. We were very impressed!

My name is India


India is talking more everyday and you can actually have conversations with her now. A few weeks ago we were getting in the car after an outing at the mall and I told her that she was a cute as a bug. She answered me by saying, "I'm not a bug, I'm India, my name is India. There might be a bug in that car over there, or that truck. But I am not a bug. My name is India"

A similar situation happened at day care this week when her provider told her that she was the early bird and the early bird gets the worm. "I'm not a worm, I'm India."

SO CUTE!
