Hello all and happy almost end of 2008...can you believe it? How does time go by that fast, seriously?
We're still enjoying family and holidays and hope you are too. We still officially only have one child in this family and the soon-to-arrive one seems to be doing well and hanging in there.
The wonderful Katie is providing us with endless entertainment...what a fun girl she is right now at this age. The latest funny story comes from last night. We were putting her in her PJ's and getting ready for bed and started singing (as we often do...she loves music and singing is almost always a good distraction, especially now that she can sort of sing along). We were singing "Frosty the Snowman", which, along with "Rudolph" and "Jingle Bells", she knows quite a few words to and can almost kind of sing the tune a bit too.
BUT...yesterday, our little funny girl decided to have some fun and honest to goodness, deliberately sang "Frosty the Snow (pause) PANTS!" and laughed along with us at the joke she had made. She honestly knew exactly what she was saying and was using her actual own un-coached sense of humour to make her very own joke. So neat. I still laugh when I think about it. (she does have a pair of snowpants, just so you know...I don't think a proper photo of her adorable snow pants and jacket have made it to the blog yet...remind me!)
She does actually show us her funny side on purpose a fair bit...whether it's laughing at the way we (ok, I) laugh or repeating a particular phrase that has made people laugh ("I don't know!" or "I'm not going to make you any deals..."). She and I have a little thing going with "Toast"...she asks if she can have some toast...she even acts whiny about it...but we both know she's either just eaten or for whatever reason doesn't really want any toast...and I say "NO" in all kinds of funny voices and she laughs hysterically.
One more thing that makes her laugh hysterically is riding her new "Big Bobby Car", which was a Christmas gift from Auntie Alli and Uncle Shannon. Here's a video:

And in fairness...Katie doesn't just love gifts from one aunt and uncle...she loves stuff from Auntie Andrea and Uncle Sheldon too...the play food that she was given is a big hit...she walks around all day with either a play bottle of water, play ice cream cone, play pizza, doughnut, carrot...you name it, something's always in her hands. Which funnily enough, makes it kind of hard for her to drive the Bobby car. =)
Here's a picture of all the new fruit and veg:
And just a few more random photos from the past few days:
Katie kissing her new baby doll...a gift from GG Mary.Katie took the pole from the road signs (that came with the Bobby Car) and was trying to put it up top of her sliding closet doors...Just like how Ben and I put the expandable shower curtain rods up so that she can't open the doors at night. She is SUCH a cute little smartiepants and saw the similarities between the two poles on her own. Smart girl. =)That's all for today...talk to you soon!
