ESTHERISMS

I have a feeling this will be a first installment of many such posts. When I babysat and nannied regularly, I knew that toddlers were hilarious, but it seemed that they became that way around age 3 or 4. However, our kid started talking SUPER early, and we can hold full-on conversations with her, and she won't even be two until December. So there's some pretty funny stuff coming out of her mouth these days. I was just capturing it on Snapchat, and then I realized I should memorialize it in her baby book, like all good first-time moms do. I can't be trusted to remember these things past next week, much less after Baby Brother comes along. 

  • While searching through my bag for a snack: "Whatchyou need?! Whatchyou need!?" Also applies when Dave or I are drinking coffee and she wants some (girl loves ALL coffee, even black). 
  • When sleepy and/or near her bed: "Scratchaback! Scratchaback!" Always said as one word. 
  • Heard her wake up in the middle of a nap the other day and groggily say, "More coffee please!"
  • When dropping Dave off at work, or watching him build something, or type on the laptop at home: "Dada's workin' harrrrrrrd!"

PS: Two shameless business plugs... Family photo special is still going on until the end of October! I promise this is not a marketing scheme when I say this, but open slots ARE filling up fast (faster than I thought!) and so if you want to grab a session with me, let me know quick! I have a couple unexpectedly open ones in the next few weekends, so give me a shout!

Business plug #2 is that I scored these Hunter rainboots off Poshmark a couple of weeks ago at a FRACTION of what they would cost brand-new (ain't nobody spending $65 on kids rainboots). I found them because I've opened up my own closet on there, and it's been a super fun side hobby! Check it out, if you're into that : ) --> https://poshmark.com/closet/abbystalsbroten
