Hey.... Show...

First, let me just show you what I found when I went in to check on my two sleeping babies... three sleeping babies! They were all snuggled up together- it was actually pretty cute!

As for the title of the post- Mairead kept saying, "Hey... Show...," while she was in the tub last night. I couldn't figure out why she was saying that since 'show' means Miss Spider on TV, and she was in the bath, which she loves. Only when she touched her hands to her head did I realize that she was saying, "Head, shoulders," as in, head, shoulders, knees and toes. We have sung it to her a few times lately, and it seems that she is learning to sing it back! So cute!

In another cute story- this morning, I was on the phone with Mairead's Day Care provider, Ms. Pat. A new baby has just come into the daycare, and this has Mairead very confused. She talks to the baby, Katie, while Katie is in her bouncy seat, and says, "baby, baby." Then, she runs to the swing, points to it, and says to Ms. Pat, "baby? Baby?" Apparently, she thinks that ALL babies come in twos, and she can't figure out where the other one is! How funny is that?

We are having so much fun with her right now. And, she is so stylish- here she is modeling a tin bucket as a hat. She insisted on wearing it... and once she's made up her mind about something, there is no talking to her. Hmmmm.... I wonder where she gets that???

Funny song, Mairead! Yesterday, when I asked Will, "What should we have for dinner tonight?" (normally I ask this out loud and get no response) he answered with a clear, "Cookie!" He's never said that before and what a time to do it.

Connor loves "Head, Shoulders, Knees and Toes!" he has a Wee Sing CD, and when that song comes on he starts touching his head!
