my little girl

My little girl makes me smile...

everytime she sings her abc's. She tilts her head to the side and sings, "abdb abdb abdb abdb."

when she runs. If there was ever someone that ran like a girl, it's Miss Elle.

when she exclaims, "I did it! I did it!" It is one of her most common phrases these days. She is so proud when she figures something out. Her other common phrase is "bad girl!" She yells that at anyone who she becomes frustrated with. That however, does not make me smile.

the times when she wants to be held. She will find her blankie and paci and come looking for me, rubbing her blankie to her ear.

when she wants to pray before dinner. She reaches for our hands and says, "Pay, Pay." Tonight she closed her eyes, threw her head back and said, "God! Food. Amen!"

when she says hello to everyone she sees and continues saying it until the person acknowledges her. Good for her! One of the things that really irritates me is when a person doesn't say hello back to a child. What is wrong with people?

after I take the trash out to the garage, I come back in the kitchen and she is waiting for me with a new trash bag. She is such a good little helper. She sees me get the broom out of the closet and she runs to grab hers. She loves to help with the dishes and laundry too. Of course you never see the boys doing any of this. Typical. Boys.

I am so thankful God has blessed me with this sweet and spunky little girl.

3 tellin' me what I want to hear!:

Minnie and Papaw got to experience most of these precious things you are talking about and more when she stayed with us recently for a week! When we went out out to eat, she would reach for both our hands and want to pray, always wanted to help me.. even folded clothes. I could tell she helped you by how she shook each item out before trying to put up! And we loved hearing her say "I did it!" or "Ta Da". But... my favorite was when she got tired and wanted to cuddle with us with her blankie, a book and paci. She just melts our hearts, our sweet beautiful little "Princess NO".

I especially like the "Ta Da" when she's accomplished something. She reminds me of Kyle when he was little, totally fearless and always moving!
