We have almost hit the 2 years + 2 months mark, so I thought I would write a little update about what Laney has been up to lately. She doesn’t change as quickly as she used to, but I wanted to document some of the funny things she says and does before we forget. And to give a long overdue update of what we have been up to lately.
Our weeks are pretty busy these days. Mondays are our only “free” days. Tuesday/Thursday morning Laney goes to a Mom’s Morning Out program aka she goes to “school” to “play whif fwiends.” Wednesday morning is Kindermusik and Friday mornings we go to a mom’s group at a local church. We squeeze in plenty of playtime and exploring new places. The days fly by so fast!
Funny sayings and phrases:
“kiss your face” whenever she wants to give/receive a kiss
“There’s the ____” i.e. “THERE’S the MOMMA!” when she sees you.
“OOOOKKKKAAAYYY” when the answer is “yes” to a question.
“Pooowweee” when something is stinky while waving her hand.
“You tired?” whenever someone yawns.
“Missed you” when I pick her up from school. She still doesn’t say love you very often, but missed you is just as nice.
“Aahh–Aahh–choo!” for her fake sneeze.
“________, WHERE ARE YOU??” in a sing-song voice. Then “THERE YOU ARE!”
“What’s my name?”
“Sorry, teacher!” I guess she learned this one at “school.”
“MINE!” “It’s LANEY’S _____” (not so funny)
“SHARPS!” or “WEALLLY SHARP! Be careful!” when she sees scissors or knives.
“Hold on tight! Fly away!” when it is really windy.
She is always super excited when Daddy gets home. We spend our evenings doing handstand push-ups:
Or having dance parties:
Or taking trips while “singing”:
She recently loved the agent’s office “Eddie Bear” and reading material:
She is also working hard to master stairs all.by.herself.
And if you follow me on Instagram/Facebook, you’ve already seen this, but it makes me laugh every.time.
We’ve been working on her knowing her name. Here was her first take:
And the second (LOL):
She cracks me up! Never a dull moment in life with Laney!
