I have two babies right now and it is completely crazy as I am sure you can imagine...or relate too. Josie is hilarious, nineteen months old now and a total handful of cuteness. I love her silly ways.
She is super verbal which is awesome but she really likes to voice her opinion as well. She frequently will speak in four or five word sentences and she refuses to be left out of anything with the older boys. She also calls her baby brother Zebbie and is a really fun big sister to him too.
But we also have to keep a close eye to protect him from little hands. A few afternoons ago I was home with only the younger two and Zeb was sound asleep in his cradle. Josie was deep in play so I ran downstairs to put dinner in the oven when I suddenly heard Z screaming. I ran upstairs and found Josie walking out of my room with a beaming grin on her face holding an empty Coke can that I had set down on my nightstand completely full and forgotten about.
She was saying something about "a sip" I thought she had probably poured it all over the carpet after trying to take a sip but the carpet was fine so when I looked in the cradle I was mortified to find that she had dumped the entire can all over Zeb's face. He was covered in Coke and laying in a puddle of it sputtering and crying. I felt so bad for him and was in total shock that she had managed to do that in the brief time I took my eyes off of her...they keep me busy that is for sure!
I love the dynamic of being a house of mostly boys with my little girl in the mix. We paint our toes together already and she is starting to wear what little hair she has in a funny ponytail on the top of her head. Her smile is contagious and she sings constantly. What a fun age she is.
I wish I could bottle up time and freeze it - it's exhausting but these little ones have my heart just as full as my arms! I had to document that story while it was fresh in my mind though, oh the things they can get into!
