Friday Focus: Alice
Look, it's Alice! I like this picture of her. It's the current one on her cubby. She's very excited about "hair pretties" these days. Her mom brought me a whole bunch so I can continually put little piggies in. Makes everyone happy.
She really is pretty happy most of the time. This was a rare sad moment I caught and it doesn't even look too sad. More horrified, or possibly constipated. :) Mostly she just plays and talks and makes cupcakes and talks and reads and talks. Oh, and also talks.
This post has been sitting in draft because she has SO many awesome one-liners that I get bogged down and overwhelmed when I come to write them down. She makes me laugh out loud every single day, and her vocabulary is pretty amazing for her age. She's spending the night tonight. I was sitting at the table eating mac and cheese with her while my iTunes played on shuffle. Some song by Material Issue came on, I don't even remember which one. She starts bopping around in the chair immediately. "OH! Ms Kelli, do you like this song? Will you rock out with me?"
Rock out. I could die from the cuteness. And then other days it's like still having Kanga around. She'll follow me around and say really grown-up sounding things like a coworker would. "Oh, are you pouring Perdita milk? That sounds like a good plan." FOR REAL. She says things like that all the time. "I think actually we ate pears last week Ms Kelli."
And I'll say, "would you like some more milk?" And she says, "That would be a yes." She kills me.
She got super huggy awhile back- this picture is kind of old since Mater was still here, but it was a really fun morning. They all went around and took turns hugging, and she was orchestrating it all. "Okay, now I will hug Remy. Lady, you hug Mater. Now I will hug Mater. Remy, you hug Lady." It just went on and on and then they started spinning around till they all fell down.
Right now she's enjoying cupcakes and dinosaurs. Oh, and the Three Bears still. Officially we've finished the unit, but we still talk about it and read the book at least a couple times a week. I eat pretend cupcakes probably 30 times a day too. And she still loves anything blue. Cracks me up. "This is blue! Blue is my color! I like it! It is pretty like me!"
And it absolutely is.
