Hat c/o The Posh PlumMia was covering her eyes with her hands and told me, "look at me, momma! I hidin', momma!"
I recorded the first time she said, "holy cow!" because it was too funny. We've moved on from that phrase though. I was changing James' poopy diaper when Mia randomly said, "holy crap!" so.... ha ha!
When we brought James home from the hospital, my parents were staying with us for a few nights to help. Eric and I took advantage of them being home and took Mia out on a little date his last night before returning to work. As we were walking in for ice cream Mia informed us that she deserved a big ice cream (because she's a big sister now!) "not a wittle one, a BIG one!"
Just a couple days after bringing James home from the hospital, Mia and I were reading a Halloween book. I explained that when she was a baby, she was a lady bug for her first Halloween. She quickly told me, "I not a baby anymore!
"Yep, you're a big girl!"
"I'm a sister!!"
She has loved her role as big sister from day one ;)
One morning I explained to Mia that I needed to shower because "I stink" (to put it bluntly, ha ha!) That night she heard Eric in the shower and told me, "daddy stink SO HARD!"
James was only a few days old when Mia looked at his face and exclaimed (with a horrified look on his face), "oh no!! Where'd his eyebrows go?!"
Mia overheard me say, "that is SO stinking cute!"
She quickly corrected me, "it's NOT stinky!"
"No, it's not! It is SO cute!"
"It's not stinky cute!"
I started laughing.
"It's NOT funny!"
I was loading Mia in the car to head to our church Christmas party and reminded her to tell me when she needed to go potty.
"Uh huh!! I ho'd it in my pants and then I pee on Santa!
"Oh pleeeeeeeeease don't pee on Santa!" (I was totally shocked that she said that, by the way!)
"Okaaaaaay...." with a mischievous giggle. HA!
James was grunting in his sleep, plus trying to breath through his congested nose and it kind of sounded like snoring. Mia said, "James sounds like a chicken!"
"Yeah, like Papa!"
Poor Papa... he does snore but he does not sound like a chicken when doing so, ha ha!
Mia got some new clothes and she had to try them on the second we pulled them out of the packages. She tried on her "ballerina" dress and instantly told me, "I twirl now!!" as she tested out it's twirling abilities. Next she tried on her superman pj's (from the boy's section... the girl kind was not super hero-y enough!) and instantly exclaimed, "I need my super hero cape! I gotta get my cape now!" and ran off to find her pink cape :) She was such a hoot that night as she tried on each item. Something I don't want to forget!
The other morning she hollered from the bathroom that she needed me to come wipe her bum. I walked in and she excitedly said, "It's a BIG poop, mom!"
"No! It's just a baby poop. It doesn't have it's mommy, dad and big sister!"
The things you never thought would be normal conversation before having kids....
