My Kid is Freakin' Hilarious!

No, seriously.

~So, she's learning all of her animal sounds, like most kids her age, and this has brought on some great moments! Her favourite is the wolf/dog sound. Her dog sound used to be sort of an "arf arf", but because my dogs are whiners, the wolf and dog sounds are interchangeable. And it sounds a little like this:

"Arrrr ooooh!"

She likes making this sound SO much, that every time a dog or wolf comes on TV she'll start howling. She sees a dog or wolf in a book, she starts howling. If she's in the car, and is bored, she'll start howling. And she LOVES it when I howl with her. When the two of us stand in front of the mirror together and howl, she gets so overly giddy with delight that you can't help but want to do it over and over, just to see that smile one more time.

~Cherry has this little pink cat that meows when you squeeze it. Today, she picked it up and gave it a squeeze, and right after I asked her "What sound does a kitty cat make?"

Her answer?


Which is freakin' hilarious for TWO reasons! 1) We have NEVER taught her that "kitties hiss" and 2) She's soooo right! Sabre has been in the pissiest mood these past couple of weeks, and can't seem to walk past Ozzy or the dogs without letting out a little swat and a hiss! And my uber smart 16 month old totally picked up on that!

~Cherry now likes to climb up onto her change table when it's time to change her diaper. She just runs up to it, and in a blink of an eye, she's up and on it. The first couple of times she did this, it sort of caught me by surprise (which, really, it shouldn't have, 'cause she's a crazy climber). And on the third or forth time she did it, I asked "What are you? A monkey?"

To which she replied: "Oooh ooh!" (monkey sound, in case you didn't figure it out)

~Since she's got over her cold, Cherry has become quite the little delight. She had seemed to remain quite active while she was sick, but I hadn't noticed how much her "spark" or energy had faded as the weeks dragged on. But she's back now! Today, she hopped on her horse and was so energetically enthusiastic about riding it that I thought she'd fly off of it!
Yes, I know her shirt's open, and that's sort of creepy, but the point of the picture is, JUST LOOK AT THAT FACE!

Later, at some point in the evening, she was watching the kids' show "Big Comfy Couch" while I was on the computer and she just started giggling away. I turned to look at her, and she was rolling around on the floor imitating the character on the TV doing her "clock stretches". It was quite the sight to see my little one hysterically laughing as she rolled around doing her "exercises".

~Oh, and a couple of updates regarding this post:

This is what it looks like when a 16 month old has figured out how to move her mattress at nap time.

And I got that pan clean. Just soaking it overnight worked. Thanks for the tips! (But I sort of wanted an excuse to buy a new one.)

And SOMEONE, (you know who you are) requested a belly shot... so here goes:
I tried to get one that didn't have any b00bs in it, 'cause you guys always bug me about that! Hee hee. But here's a shot, it's not so great, but I'll have some nice ones up in a couple of weeks. (Armondo and I are trying to take some sort of "artistic" shots.) Oh, and the stretch marks? They're from last time. I don't have any new ones on my belly yet. They're all on my thighs. And um, we're talking inner thighs, THREE INCHES ABOVE MY KNEE! How sick is that? (The majority of the stretch marks from last time are on my back, butt and thighs too. My belly sort of lucked out.)

Boy, that is one joyful little girl on that horse!

You're putting on some weight. Better watch it with the poutine and gravy, or whatever it is LOL

Thanks for the delightful post. I wonder if Cherry wonders why mommy's belly is round when it wasn't before. Hmm.

You got a regular Dr Doolittle on your hands, kiddo.

And here I was gonna buy ya a monkey. Hee hee.

And I am sooooo glad you don't have many stretch marks on your belly.

Mr.Fab~It's totally tasty though! You HAVE to come to Canada and try it!

Sarah~I tell her what's going on, but she doesn't seem to really acknowledge it. But considering she figured out that whole hissing cat thing, I'm thinking she's smarter than she lets on!

Maidink~my thighs are roadmaps. Totally sexy, I assure you!

Cherry looks like she is totally thrilled on her horse:o)

My youngest niece learned to bark andgrowl, she would go around growling at everyone!!!

I see the little one is growing just fine.
