Straight Out of The Mouth of Caroline, Part 2

Caroline, you are at the age now where I can have full conversations with you & it's so much fun! You say the most random crap and I love it. You woke up this morning asking for some "coconut water" (totally normal) and then told me you wanted to play in the cave. Cave = under a blanket and pretending it's a cave. ADORABLE. Here's a list of funny things you've said over the past couple months...

Caroline: "I'm Princess Sofia!"
Mommy: "No, you're Princess Caroline."
C: "What?!"
M: "You're Princess Caroline!"
C: "Uh oh! Where's my crown?!"

(Pulling shirt over your head)
"Mom, it's dark in here!"

Caroline: "I'm so hungry!"
Mommy: "What do you want to eat?"
C: "Umm, let's see here..." (puts fingers to chin)

Mommy: "Do you want to go to back to the zoo sometime and see the animals?"
(You jump off the couch)
Caroline: "Where my shoes, mom?"

(Hits head on bathroom counter)
"Oww, my hair hurts!"

"It's really-diculous!" (ridiculous)

(Gazing out the window)
"Mama, wanna turn the rain off?"

Mommy: "Do you want to go on a walk tomorrow?"
Caroline: "No, it's dark out."
M: "Not right now, tomorrow!"
(You sit up in bed)
C: "Okay, get the flashlight!" 

(On a walk and we see a flamingo lawn ornament)
Mommy: "See that pretty pink bird?"
Caroline: "That's not a bird, mama. It's a 'mingo!"

(After I got out of the shower, wrapped up in a towel)
Caroline: "Have a good shower?"
Mommy: "Yes, I did!"
C: "I like your towel, mama. Oh no, where's your shirt?!"

(Laying in bed at 10 p.m.)
"I'm sleepy. I wanna take a nap."

Caroline: "Where's baby Reese Cup?"
Mommy: "She's sleeping."
C: "Let's wake her up!"
M: "No, she needs to sleep."
C: "She's MINE, mommy! Wake up, Reese!"

 (Leaving the annual Hampton family fish fry, your granddaddy was still there when we drove off)
"Bye grandaddy! Thanks for the hot dogs!"

(Talking to a nice old man at the grocery store)
Old man: "What's your little sister's name?"
Caroline: "That's baby Reese. She eats her fingers."

Some of your favorite things right now include: playing soccer in the backyard, Dora the Explorer fruit snacks, swimming in your pool, peanut butter and cheese sandwiches, the TV show Super Agent Oso, trips to Walmart, fresh watermelon, helping mommy sweep the kitchen and baby corn. 

You are growing up so fast. Next week you'll be taking your second airplane ride (and baby Reese's f irst) and I'm praying you enjoy it. I will have a bag packed with lots of new coloring books and toys. And this time around you'll get your own seat, just like a big girl. You're taking your first trip to New England (we'll be visiting New Hampshire & Connecticut) and seeing some family. Some of them haven't met you or Reese yet & are very excited!

 Here are some recent pictures! :)
