What a Character

Chloe is such a little character. Not a day goes by where she doesn't say or do something that just cracks me up. Yesterday, she was going to go to the store with my mom and grandma and so my mom put her in the car and said that they were going to pick up great grandma. Chloe looked at my mom and said "we're going to drive when it is so close?" My grandma lives 2 doors down from my mom's house. Too smart!

Chloe has also discovered that she can move one of her chairs to wherever she wants to give her some height. Now she can reach all the light switches, her shoes and the top drawer of her dresser...which holds all her tights, socks, hats, etc. If I leave her alone for too long this is what I find.

She also LOVES to change her clothes. I think she wears at least 5 different outfits a day. She has been especially in love with all her new summer shorts that she recently got. Not that she is able to wear them outside with all the cold weather and snow we're getting as of late! She asks me if she can wear her shorts and I have to tell her it's too cold. She will then look out the window, see the sun and tell me "But it's nice out." Nice try! As you can see, her choice in outfits still needs some work.

I love this little girl and she brings such joy to our lives.

Happy Mother's Day

I hope every mother out there had a wonderful Mother's Day. We spent the weekend with family and had a great time. Well, let me rephrase that. Chloe and I spent Saturday with my family while Aaron was sick in bed. He was finally able to drag himself out of bed long enough on Sunday evening to go to his parents house with us for a while.

We have a tradition where Aaron gets me a beautiful pot of flowers for our front porch for Mother's Day. Then, Chloe usually gets me a cute new shirt or something...she has such great taste. :)

I am so grateful to be a mother and to have such an amazing mother to look up to and get advice from. I love that she is so close and that I can see her whenever I want. I don't know what I would do if she still lived in California. I also have a wonderful mother-in-law that also lives close. She treats me just like one of her own daughters and I am so thankful for that. I love you both! Happy Mother's Day!

Chloe's Songs

Chloe loves to sing. She knows so many songs it is amazing. She never ceases to amaze me with her knowledge of songs that she knows. We will be in the car and she will just start singing with the song.

I have tried to get her to sing on video forever, but as soon as I get the camera out she becomes mute. I was finally able to get her to sing for Tawna on the phone and so she didn't notice the camera. She got a little confused with her "ABC's" and "Bingo" but she does know both songs quite well. She also stopped singing "Twinkle Twinkle" to play her piano but hey, it is the best that I could get. Enjoy!
