Now...a few more random treats for YOU, reader...some things the girls have been saying that are just so cute, I have to write them down here!
Therese "I wish we could live inside the Christmas tree!"
"Oh, it's so nice! Oh, it's so beautiful!" (the tree...)
"I LOVE you! He's peeking out of there/sliding around in there/crawling around in there" (referring to baby brother)
"You never know!!"
"Yummy bummy! Hey, bummy's not yummy!!!!!"
"How DARE you DO THAT!!!" said with a very angry, snarly scowl, usually in all seriousness
After Christmas, talking about the Advent boxes, "What do we do on the first day of NOT Christmas?"
"When are we gonna grow up mama?" said while eating a popsicle, after mentioning that I thought baby was especially hungry and growing that night
Greta, at bedtime: "I'm going to dream of me and __________ (baby brother's yet to be completely announced name) riding on Rody!" Rody is the girls new blow up donkey
"Oh, the sweetness of peppermint!!" said while eating a candy cane...Greta makes her last FOREVER and Therese chomps hers down in a couple minutes!!!
"I don't think I WANT to have a baby"...said at least twice recently after I complained or shared something pregnancy related to or around Greta!
Also, just the other day the girls were playing "spa" (I guess I gave them the idea awhile ago, having been to the spa maybe TWICE in my life!!!). I overheard Greta saying to Therese "Oh, your hair looks so beautiful and your nails look so nice too" and I was thinking "Oh no, now they've gotten the nail polish out...I can't believe Therese is letting Greta do her hair" etc...and then Therese walks out into the kitchen with her hands out all dainty, not painted at all, just pretending to be all done up. Later I go into their room and Greta had filled a cup of water and Therese was dipping a little stick into it and then painting her nails with the water! The things they come up with!!! Also, lately they've been doing a "hug walk"...where they walk and hug each other at the same time, chanting "hug walk, hug walk!!!"
These girls have never-ending imaginations!
Happy New Year to all, and Gung Hai Fat Choy--(I think?) (Chinese New Year today, a very big deal in Vancouver!)
I hope to post more soon before this little baby is born and things get a bit crazier. I am at the point where I'm really really ready to smell and hold and snuggle this little boy...can't wait!!! The girls can't either, they love on him so much already :-)
