One more thing

I forgot to mention that Maddie is like a broken record lately.  Not only is she repeating literally everything that comes out of my mouth she will also repeat it over and over and over and over.  It's funny and cute at first but after a while it gets on your nerves.  For example yesterday right as I was (too much information ahead) about to throw up, she was standing outside the bathroom calling me.  I told Chris she needed to stop since it was making me totally nauseous to listen to anything at that point.  So he said "Come with me, Maddie, Mommy's sick".  Maddie then proceeded to say "Mommy sick" about a hundred times until I threw my guts up.  At least she speeded things along for me.

We've learned that if you acknowledge what she's saying that she will stop.

It's amazing to me how the little ones find your buttons and then PUSH them!

Kylie's favorite button to push on me is saying, "Momma, Momma" over and over. She's asking for her other Mother. And I'm like, "Come on kiddo. I'm the one changing your diaper or fixing your food at the moment. Can't you give me a loving "Mommy" instead of demanding the other one?" Little stinker.

Parallel worlds. S fell out of her crib for the first time today, and J totally does the repeating 100 times thing -- and I also realized that if you acknowledge him, he (usually) stops.
