leahisms

so, not much going on around here, but i thought i'd share some leahisms...just things she likes to do as of late.

if you were to stop by our apartment, you would most likely see leah looking something like this: hair in a mowhawk (one or two, depending on the hairdo of the day) because she has torn out her elastic(s) and bow(s), and a sock in her mouth, probably making some sort of loud noise.

if you stop by at night, you'll see a similar leah. this time of day, she's just naked, her hair is not in a neat mowhawk, but rather in daddy's special hairdo...and she still has a sock in her mouth. still making a loud noise.

leah loves to "peek" at things. in this photo, she's peeking around the couch to try and see the tv - to no avail...kind of an amazing shot since both socks are still on her feet...not for long, i'm sure.

this one is her oatmeal booger. she was eating breakfast and wiped the oatmeal all over her face. this one hung like that and i thought it was funny...mostly bribery for later in life.

and here she is with her bathtub duck in her mouth. she didn't have socks to suck on, so this was a second best. notice the mowhawk, the squinty eyes and another of her personal favs, the shoulder shrug.

this week, she also learned what a snake says. you will often find her singing "hissssssss hisssssssssss" to herself.

oh it's been too long since we have seen her- too cute! I hope she doesn't forget who we are.

i love the oatmeal booger, especially since it looks like she is trying to lick it off! what a cute little personality she's got!

That booger is great! I am so amazed at how much she looks like Arianne (don't know if I butchered the spelling)! She is a character!

What a cutie! I love to hear these stories about these babies blooming personalities! Such a joy! Thanks for sharing!

So very cute. As she gets older, it is easy to forget these little day to day cute things that she does because they get replaced with other cute things that she'll do, so it's great to record them. Over time, I find myself not remember which kid did what. :-)

Certainly there must be a better way to keep little toes warm! I can never keep socks on Danika's feet. Leah is getting so big. What a cutie!

So . . . how do you make loud noises with socks in your mouth? And . . . love the bib in the booger photo (yea, I know . . . everyonelse noticed the booger, but I noticed the bib.)And, remind leah (and maren) not to complain about "attractive" hair - it's better than being bald. And, I love the bathtub duck in leah's mouth, but I really like the one between her legs. (Because it's pink . . . no other reason.)

ooh, teach her what a hippo says: make her open her mouth super wide! that is our favorite. :)

first off.. mom, you weren't the only one to notice the bib.. i did too.. cause i picked out the bib colors! second, just when you thought leah couldn't get any cuter, she goes and gets an oatmeal booger! yeah for 14 more days till i get to come visit!!!

LOVE the oatmeal booger pic... definitely bribe-worthy for those teenage years. :)

I love the sock in her mouth. That's hilarious.
