Words of a 2 Year Old

Sloan has been saying the most hilarious things lately. I thought I would try and document a few of them.

This comment came on Saturday morning as the garbage truck came down the street.

Sloan: (Hearing the garbage truck coming) What's that?
Me: It's the garbage truck.
Sloan: Yes, he's coming to take my poopy diapers.

This comment came as I was getting dressed to go to work one morning.

Sloan: "Mom, you are wearing brown shoes. They are so pretty!"

This comment came as Sloan was sleeping in our bed at 3am because she woke up and wouldn't go back to sleep. Lee was rolling around trying to get comfortable. Ever time he moved Sloan would say:

Sloan: "Honey, stop it"

We took Sloan to Build a Bear for Valentines Day. As we sat and ate ice cream at the mall food court afterwords, Sloan turned to me, gave me a high five and said:

Sloan: "Mom, you're the best"

This comment came again as we were laying in bed in the middle of the night sleeping and an airplane flew overhead:

Sloan: "Mom, do you hear the airplane? I better go get it."

Sloan had a sleepover at Grandma's house and woke up in the middle of the night. Grandma went in her room and asked her why she couldn't sleep to which she responded:

Sloan: "Well, Grandpa is snoring too loud so I can't sleep"

And now my personal favorite...
This is a conversation that happened between Sloan and Grandma as they weeded the yard together:

Grandma: "Oh no Sloan, I can't get this weed out. It's stuck."
Sloan: "It's okay Grandma, all we have to do is say 'Oh Toodles'"

I want You-To Turn 2

Sloan turned 2 September 15th. I have to say first and foremost, Saying good-bye to flying for free was especially hard since we travel to Utah to see family often. But also, I can't even believe she is already two! I know I will blink and she will be an independent teenager taking on the phone and wanting to hang out with her friends more than her family. But right now she is an independent two year old who wants to do everything by herself. She is incredibly funny and says the cutest things like "hey, what's the big idea" when something happens she isn't quite sure of. Or "no, I don't think so" when I ask her to do anything she doesn't want to do. She has been able to say and recognize her letters since she was about 18 months old. But now she also knows and can say the sounds they each make. She can count to 20 by herself and 30 with some help. She also knows tons and tons of signs. She caries on a conversation like she is 4 and is very, very clear with exactly what she wants. She is very determined and if she wants it she won't give up until she gets it. But she is also very rational, listens well, and is very obedient (most of the time). All in all she is an amazing little girl and I am so glad she is mine!!

Playing with her new kitchen!

Just Some Pics

Just wanted to post some cute pics of Sloan and what she's been up to lately.

For some reason Sloan decided to stuff her shirt full of all the fruit and veggies from her grocery basket. Not sure where this idea spawned from, but I thought it was totally funny.

Utah Part 2

We had so much fun in Utah! We are sad to be back home and back to work. I forgot how beautiful Utah really is because I always manage to travel there when it is 20 degrees and covered with snow. I am glad I finally took a summer trip and got a break from the 116 degree Arizona heat. Here are pics of the great things we did while in Utah.

I was able to have a fun girls night catching up with old friends from high school.

We got to see Grandma Nae, Papa Jer and lots of cousins. And I got to hang out with my sisters (although not pictured together, we really did hang out. Guess we were too busy taking the pics to be in them)!

We got to play on the beaches of Bear Lake

We swung on the giant tree swing (and by we I mean Sloan and her cousins)

And most importantly Sloan and I got to spend a whole week of fun together!!

Thanks Grandma Nae and Papa Jer for letting us come visit. And thanks Shalice and Brandon for letting us stay with you at your cabin in Bear Lake. It was so much fun, we can't wait to do it again!!

Oh The Difference A Year Makes!!

4th of July 2009

4th of July 2010

It isn't until you put a picture side by side that you realize how much difference a year makes! It has definitely been an interesting year with lots of changes, but none of the changes are quite as apparent as the ones Sloan has made!! So crazy how fast they grow and how quickly they change!

Hope you all had a great 4th!
