One of Hattie's favorite phrases is "Get down!"   She likes to say it when she's perched on places where she thinks she shouldn't be. She also likes to run. :)

She also likes to yell "'prise!" (surprise), but I couldn't get her to do it for the camera.

Dada draws a meow upon request and Hattie spots some cookies

Wednesday, January 8, 2014

Things Hattie loves right now:

Drawing - On the sliding glass doors with window crayons, on her easel, on paper. Anywhere. And she wants me to draw a cat whenever we draw together. She points and says, "Meow meow." until I draw one.
Cookies - And also Cookie Monster. She sees him on Sesame Street and says, "Num!" 
Elmo Christmas DVD - We watched it every day over the Christmas holiday. We walk into the family  room and she looks at the TV and says, "Elmo."  It's a great DVD though, so we don't mind. At least she doesn't want to watch Barney and his 'rapping' elves anymore.
Cows - "Moo! Moooo!"
Walking her babydoll in her stroller - She says, "Go walk." and she's on her way. 
Asking "Wazzat?" over and over and over. And over.
Saying "Baby" and giving me my cell phone - She says baby because there's a picture of her on the phone. She wants me to show her pictures and videos of herself all the time.

Things Hattie does not love:
Touching snow with any part of her body. She still looooooves talking about " 'now" and pointing out " 'now", but if I try to get her to stand on it or touch it, she cries and runs away. 
Me trying to get her to use a sippy cup instead of a bottle for her morning milk.
Anyone wiping her nose. Shocker... she has had a cold for basically three months now. 
Brushing her teeth.  No matter what. That one makes me scared and I wish I could get her to change, but she's sticking to her guns on that one. 

She has an amazing vocabulary. I lost count of the words she says on her own. It's well over 50. It's wonderful. And also means that we for sure have to be very careful of everything that we say now. Haha. 

Some of Hattie's favorite words:
Bye bye
Tunnel ("Nunnel")
Cereal ("Eeweoo")
Raisin  ("Raiyeen")
Pretzel ("Petedow")

Random pics from recent times:

Hattie's favorite video to watch of herself. She smiles so wide when she watches. :) ...
