Things I Adore about Paisley

I was thinking this morning while snuggling with my sweet pea in bed about all of the little things that I never want to forget about her.  You know, the things that are what make her unique.

  • The way she entertwines her fingers through my hair for relaxation.  She loves to hold my hair when it's time to sleep or drink her milk.
  • How she always says "ho-ho-ho" like Santa when she puts something on her head.  She'll call it a "hat", but often it's a bucket, pair of pants, or some other odd object lying around.
  • When she covers her face with a towel or large hat so that she's unable to see as she walks around running into things.  This makes her giggle like crazy.
  • The concern she has when a shoe falls off of her.  She'll wake up from fast asleep if her shoe gets knocked off and start saying "shoe" in a really concerned voice.
  • Her absolute conviction about how things should be done.  This is not a child who will ever get picked on or pushed around by anyone.  Peer pressure should not be a problem!
  • When you tell her it's time to go, and she marches toward the front door saying "hut-two, hut-two".
  • The way she loves animals.  She'll never give us kisses but she's always got plenty for the cats and dogs.
  • When she gets a piece of lettuce from the fridge and immediately starts looking for her "dada" so she can feed her turtles.  I adore the way she says turtles.  She also loves to feed the fish!
  • Her orneriness.  She knows when she's being feisty and she'll laugh hysterically about it.
  • If she can't see her dad or myself, she'll say "mama" or "dada" in a very concerned tone and then throw her hands up and say "uh-oh".  She recently added "ohhhh noooo" to this.
  • The child's fascination with Bubble Guppies.  Thank you Nickelodeon.  We owe you our lives.
  • When she hands you her sippy cup after she's done with it, she always says either "here go" or "thank you".  Super cute in her adorable little baby voice.
  • The fact that she calls her Grandma (my mom) "doo-doo".  No one ever even says doo-doo to her, much less encouraged her to nickname her Grandma that.  But I love it!


  1. Aww! I adore Paisley too :) So cute! If I were you I wouldn't want to forget these things either :)

  2. She sounds so sweet! My kids adore the Bubble Guppies, too! They always sing the lunchtime song. :) It's so wonderful that you are keeping track of a these little things. They add up to big stuff.

  3. She is so precious! Your description of how she walks to the door made me laugh!
