(early morning giggles)
(just had an itch...ha)
Mostly my days lately consist of facetime calls with Jeff, and brainstorming ideas to entertain my sweet child; all the while feeling tiny little kicks of encouragement from my little baby inside.
It has been hard to be away from Jeff, but if you've noticed, I try not to dwell on it. Right now, we can't live in the same place, and I can either complain all day, or enjoy my days with this gem of a little girl and try to always keep her daddy in the loop. I will just say, it will be a joyous reunion when we get to see our favorite guy again. That's for sure.
One thing that I was so grateful Jeff didn't miss happened when we were facetiming today. Jane started doing squats. With quite good form, might I add! Well without any coercion, she finishes doing squats and moves right along to push ups, as if it were the most natural next step. She was doing push-ups. I mean, not the kind of push ups that would've passed any physical fitness test, but it was obvious that she knew exactly what she was doing. Her army dad was so proud. He then proceeded to coach her through 3 sets of squats, and 3 sets of push-ups. :)
We have been graced with the warmest ever Utah February, and although it is snowily coming to an end as we speak, we thoroughly enjoyed all the sunshine. Jane became quite accustomed to going "Out-Ide" and now begs for it. She just doesn't grasp the concept of "you won't be able to move your limbs because it is too cold" quite yet.
Her vocabulary is growing more rapidly than I can even keep up with lately. For the past few days, she has made multiple requests that were not fulfilled on account of, I had no idea what she was asking. My latest discoveries: The word "Waaaaaaiiiiitttttt", repeated over and over again is her way of asking to watch her favorite movie clip, 'I Just Can't Wait To Be King'. "Uh-weep" is her way of asking for me to get her broom out so she can sweep. Yes, she has her own mini broom, and no I'm not complaining that my daughter has an obsession with cleaning. "Dandy" is one that has been around for awhile; also one that won't be going away anytime soon because of her dangerous obsession with candy. That girl really likes candy. Regardless of the fact that I say "No candy" 98% of the time, she still asks often and with great diligence.
This stage is so dang fun. She is talking so much and enjoying more activities. I've been waiting awhile for her to finally enjoy coloring and now she can. She also, to my pleasant surprise, is already an avid shopper. She "oohs" and "ahhs" over every article of clothing, and when it is really something special she will say "cuuuuuute!". That's my girl. I call her my buddy sometimes, and the other day when we were going shopping she said "Tum on, buddy!" UHM, hi. Daughters are awesome.
I love my little girl and I pray everyday that she will never turn into a snotty teenager who hates me, because then I'd really miss my buddy.
