Ice Cream

Until recently, Josie has only wanted things that she could see. She would only want to play bubbles if she saw the bubble container or eat crackers if she saw the cracker box out. Recently though, she's been asking for things that I've hidden away (like her annoying talking toys).


The other evening, completely out of the blue she turns to me and says "Want Ah-kee". Now, I was pretty sure that she wanted ice cream, but since no one had talked about ice cream and she hadn't seen any I was skeptical that I was understanding her correctly. That was until she grabbed my hand and marched me to the freezer. She kept pointing at it saying "ah-kee" over and over again. I was so impressed that she had recalled the word for ice cream with no prompting AND knew that it was in the freezer (we don't have ice cream that much) I let her have some.


She thoroughly enjoyed it.

The official annoucement


Baby Blake #2 is due January 29th, 2011. I'm currently 14 weeks pregnant and FINALLY beginning to feel better after a very rough summer.
Even though Josie is obviously crying in the picture, it was because I was trying to take away her cookies in order to get a better shot. I eventually gave up. I can't say that she is excited, or not excited for that matter, about the new baby however she points to my stomach and says "bebe" and then gives it hugs and kisses.
Looks like I'll have to rename the blog "The Little OneS"
