Big baby switcheroo!

Jacie loves "Big baby" so much! A long time ago Big baby use to live in the crib only but as Jacie got older her love for her baby grew and now Big baby goes pretty much everywhere with her. A while ago we had our first big baby incident where she fell into the toilet right before bed. It was her 1st time to go to sleep without holding big baby. She cried and cried for Big baby! That night I ordered a backup for when the next thing happened to her loved baby. Last weekend it happened... Big baby stayed at her mamaw and papaws house on accident. Of course as soon we pull into the drive way Jacie says "oh no BIG BABY!" I knew right then she was left behind. It was already 7pm when we got home so the thought of going back was not what I wanted to do.
We came inside, and we did the big switch. I went into the closet and grabbed the new one, took the tags off and came out all excited that Big baby was in mama and dada's room! I honestly don't think Jacie bought it right away. Her reaction to a brand new big baby was pretty funny. She kept looking at her and squeezing her, turning her over to look at her 'tail" (tag). Her big baby was looking really ratty and not so "new" looking.  At one point she even asked "No, other big baby" but then after that initial meeting she was okay with it. She went to bed just fine and has been using that Big baby with no problem.

"Hold me"

One of Jacie's newer phrases is "hold me." She will say it out in public when she wants to be picked up or say it when she is sitting in a shopping cart. On those occasions I tell her "no." I am not going to hold her when she is perfectly fine and plus she is getting pretty heavy.

This morning though she said "hold me" and I picked her up as quick as I could and held on to her tight! We were sitting on the couch watching Finding Nemo and she wanted to sit on my lap! I grabbed her up and we snuggled under a blanket while watching the movie =) I will take a snugly 2 year old any day!

I was just thinking the other day about how I can't even remember the last time I have held her while she slept!!! I know that is not what she did today but it was close enough!

ABC song

Jacie has been doing lots and lots of singing these last few months. Recently she has loved singing the ABC's. She sings them anytime she sees any letters. She is getting better at the song daily but getting the song on video is near impossible. So far this is the best I have gotten of her.

This weekend my "job" was to get my students take home binder done! They take so long to put together. I worked on them after Jacie went to bed so the next morning she walked into the living room and saw so many "books." She was looking through them and said "Look mama, letters!" So then she started singing =) I got her to repeat it a few times... that sound between V and W  is the dishwasher making a weird noise! You know 2 year olds are in full ADD mode!!! HA!
