The Beauty of an Independent toddler

I give Paisley a hard time on here because I love telling the funny stories about her being stubborn or awful. But it isn't really fair to spread the bad side all over the Internet without also sharing the good.

Paisley may be stubborn and somewhat difficult to manage at times but she is also incredibly funny. She now knows she's humorous and will laugh openly at herself. She likes to call us silly names like "giraffe ears" or "poopy mess". She is ornery and silly. We love to make goofy faces at each other, chase dada through the house and make games out of everything we do.

The girl is amazing in restaurants. She will sit in her own chair (no high chairs for this diva), and keep herself mostly entertained throughout an hour long meal.

She loves to be on the go. We are out and about more than we are home and she behaves very well. Once we get in the car. You all know how much she likes that. We've taken her to Vegas twice, Mexico, Dominican Republic and a cruise so far and she has been perfect on every trip and flight.

She loves to snuggle still and drink her "mo". She likes to dance and sing songs with us including "big ones" which means we have to use a weird creepy voice. Her favorites are "Gangnam style" and "Rudolph", which makes her super well-rounded. :)

She loves bathtime and splashing 75% of the water on the floor. She insists on sleeping with both a blanket and a towel in her crib. She likes brushing her teeth and "getting the bugs out",

When she needs extra or additional of something, she asks for "more-some".
Her language is exploding right now and she is super chatty. She is very opinionated on which shoes she wants to wear and feels pretty in dresses already.

The kid already appreciates lip gloss and having her toe nails painted. She can charm the socks off even the grumpiest client at the clinic and believes that all animals are wonderful.

I could go on about my amazing girl for an eternity, but the point here is that I wouldn't trade her sassiness for anything. Thank goodness Graham is laid back though...


  1. I think it's great that Paisley is sassy. It's important for a girl to be independent smart funny and not gonna take any crap from anybody. It may make your day to day a bit harder but she is going to be great!!!!!
    Her stories are funny though!!!!

  2. I heart Paisley! :) And the fact that she appreciates lip gloss already makes me love her even more!

  3. Why does she look so big in that pic? She is so cute though! I bet she would have fun with the boys. It would be interesting to see them interact.
