Meeting Baby Selah!

I have been meaning to post about our visit with our friends to meet Anne Margaret or "Margie's" baby as Delaney calls her! One of our great family friends recently had a precious little girl named Selah and Delaney was so excited to finally meet her. We always talked about her when she was in Margie's tummy and Delaney was excited when I told her that Selah was out of Margie's tummy (ok well as much as a two year old can understand that!). She is perfect and is soooo precious! Delaney is excited to have another girl friend and when we talk about her she always says, "I want to be sweet to her!". She asked if she could "hold her" the first time we went to visit and it was the highlight of her day. For the next few days when we would talk about our visit she would say very proudly, "I got to hold her Mommy!". The other day when we visited she wanted to get in Selah's Nap Nanny so Lisa put her right up there and she had her milk and snack all buckled in to Selah's seat. She thought she was so cool all strapped in. We adore their entire family and they have all been such a huge part of Delaney's and all of our lives for awhile now. We are blessed to have them in our lives, love them all and are so excited for this perfect new addition to their family!

Beautiful baby Selah!

Baby talk- 27 months

Okay so I said I was going to start posting all the funny and new things Delaney is saying these days, but so far I haven't been very good! So I'm going to try and list the newest things that I can still remember. When she says something funny in the moment I think I will remember it forever to record it later and then I catch myself asking "what in the world was that she said"! So here are some recent things from Delaney:

-Sometimes when I ask her something or tell her to do something she will put her hands up and say "fine!"- not in a smarty pants way but just to be funny and it is so cute!

-She has started pretending a lot lately and today she was acting like her teacher at school during show and tell and her conversation went like this:
D: Okay fold your hands Mommy!
Me: Okay now what
D: ummmm (thinking) Delaney! Come on up and do your show and tell! She would then get whatever she was showing and then this conversation would start over only with it being Mommy's turn to come on up and show!

- She told me in the car the other day: "Mommy you give me headache!"

- She tells the dogs all the time: "stop barking Mazi, zip it up girls!"

- Anytime you say something like your silly she will respond with "I not silly I am Delaney!"

- She will say her blessing that they say at school and it is so precious!

- She also says her vowels and she will sing this song with them and at the end she waves her hands and screams "DOWELS" I love it because she says it exactly like I spelled it!

- She always tells David to "sit on the floor Daddy"! She wants him to sit next to her kitchen while she plays and she will always cook for him.

- If she is talking and David is watching T.V she will say "Daddy stop watching T.V and pay attention to me!"

- She also calls David babe sometimes when she doesn't want him to aggravate her and she will say "stop babe!"

- She talks about all her friends at school and tells me who her favorites are, along with who she thinks is "mean" and pushes people!

- She loves telling you Aubie says "war eagle" and then right after she will say "kick em in the butt big blue hey!"

- She will tell you her first and last name together now

- She sings songs ALL the time and singing is one of her favorite things to do at school

I feel like she says so many new things everyday and I can't keep up with everything! I really need to post more on the things she is saying because I know I will want to be able to look back and remember little things that she said at this age. She is really funny and super sharp with what she says and remembers. She is like an elephant and hardly ever forgets something you tell her even if you ask her about it days later. We love her so much and this is our favorite age so far! Hope everyone is having a great weekend!

Cooking Lessons

Delaney was home sick last week for a couple of days. She just got a little virus and the poor girl does not eat anything when she is sick. We have been watching a Mickey Mouse movie that David brought her last time she was sick and Minnie cooks muffins in the movie. Well D decided when she was sick last week that she needed muffins too! David stopped on his way home and bought us the muffin mix and I let Delaney help me mix them up. She is really into cooking right now and she thought that was the coolest thing ever. I love having a little girl to do things like this with and I see many more cooking lessons in our future!

McWane Center

My mom gave us a family pass to the McWane Center for Christmas and we have already gotten her moneys worth on it! We went for the first time the weekend after Christmas and it was the last day for the snow room and the trains. I had heard so many things about this exhibit and I was so excited that we made it before they took it down. Delaney had a blast and was very amused by the snow room. There was a little girl building a snow castle and Delaney really wanted to help her, but every time she came close to her the little girl yelled at her (by little girl I mean maybe like 7ish). Delaney kept her distance and didn't get upset so I just called her over and helped her build her own snow castle! She had a blast and we have been back a couple of times since then. I love it because everything is kid friendly and she can walk around and just do her own thing. She loves the water table and pushing the grocery carts around with food in them. I have a feeling we will be regular attenders seeing how much fun she has every time we go!
