Happy birthday, miss sticky pickles.

Today marks the third anniversary of squishing Herself through my girly bits. I'm just too tired lately to write much, but I wanted to share some of her recent habits so I can write them in her baby book later.

- In trying to teach her to respond correctly when asked "What's your name?", she's gone from no response to saying "molasses". (She's not imitating what I say because when I ask her "What's mommy's name?" she replies "Meh-issa".)
- She likes to name things she sees in the fridge when someone has it open. The other day she spontaneously said "sticky pickles!" to describe the relish. I don't ever remember explaining that relish is made from pickles, although I'm sure we've discussed it since we talked about how mustard is made.
- When Himself took her along to pick up some stuff we're temporarily storing for Jake, she sang "J-J-J-Jake!" when he pulled into the parking lot then repeated "Hey-yo, Jake!" all the way to his room.
- I've been sleeping a lot during this hormonal misery and she "checks" on me when Himself isn't looking. She tiptoes into the bedroom, pokes the bedding away from my head, and whispers, "Hey-yo Mommy Monster!" (When we talk in silly voices, we do a "monster" voice.)
- She recently stopped avoiding the water spray when we take a shower and when I asked her to stop putting the rubber ducks under my feet while I was washing her hair, she replied "ducks NEED rain!". She's memorized all of the ducklings' names in Make Way for Ducklings.

Always reach for the sky, baby girl.

My baby girl turns 6 on July 9th. My, how time flys. Cute pic and a very sweet caption. I'm a baby book fanatic and I'm sure my children will appreciate it when they get older.

Get all the rest you need.

*giggles madly* Kids come up with the BEST phrases. George Lucas couldn't do better. "Sticky Pickles." Gangster name waiting to happen.

I didn't think my nephew, when he was two, had any way of knowing who Jimi Hendrix was, but when my sister walked him down by this bronze statue of him, he climbed up onto his knees and hugged him, fake-sobbing "Jimi! Jimi!" Passers-by thought it was INSANELY cute.

Awesome pic. Reminds me of one of those motivational posters. I have to agree that I love the ubercute "sticky pickle" quote. Wish I could remember something like that about my younger brother. *shrug*

Yes! Tell her Happy Birthday.

If I recall, the day she was born was the first time I saw the Monkees' "Head". So, it was a good day all 'round.

Wow, another early July Cancer birthday!

In my family there are three:

My cousin Rich on the 6th (34)
My nephew Bill on the 7th (15)
My dad on the 8th (65)

Also, there's a family friend (an old babysitter of mine) who will be about 44 or so on the 7th, and an ex of mine will be 31 on the or around the 10th.

that is what it is ALL about.

I'm a little late but happy bday to your girl. I want a baby so badly...but then I remember I'm 21 living in my parents house and my fiance would have to be around long enough to get me pregnant which he never is and I'm rambling. Sorry.
