Mimi is coming has been the mantra around our house for the last several weeks and tomorrow is the big day. My mom and grandmom will arrive at 2:30. I am so excited to have 4 generations together. They will be here for Kozette's third bithday. I am trying to keep the festivities simple but it is difficult to not go overboard. Anyone who knows me knows I love a party!
The girls were tagged by the Devine Miss Zoe over at Drew and Carrie's blog. Here is a bit of scoop about the Quinn girls.
K still calls herself Aiyaya. This one might stick. Tefessae, our wonderful driver in Ethiopia emailed me and told me it is a term of endearment in Ethiopia.
T has many nicknames. T-Dawg, Boo Boo, Boo Boo Booinski, Boo Boo Magoo. She has also taken to calling herself Aiyaya from time to time.
T is getting around rather quickly these days. She loves to hold balls and can spot one from a mile away.
K is a baller. She can dribble with both hands and her coach/babysitter, Ange, has high hopes for her basketball career. T can even dribble with one hand behind her back.
K is a fan. She loves men. We have finally gotten to a point where she does not just run up and jump into their arms. We had a few embarrassing moments especially in the airport on our way home from Ethiopia.
T takes a while to warm up but has a few favs. Pop pop is number one of course.
T loves to drum. She will drum on anything. She also has a few little diddies she sings. Happy Birthday to mommy is my favorite. My birthday was a month ago but she still sings to me daily.
K is a big fan of dancing. She likes to sing while I dance and then we switch. Do we know how to have fun or what?
K loves her little sister and smothers her with affection, even when she is not up for it. She likes to feed her and always makes sure her needs are met.
T looks up to her big sissy and imitates her. This morning K coughed so T coughed. She also attempts to keep up verbally and is doing very well.
T is all about the cell phone. She will turn anything into a cell phone, a cracker, a toy, a piece of paper. She will say hello and when I ask her who it is, it's always Mimi or Pop Pop.
K likes the lap top. She will sit and ask to look at the babies. She is already a blogger. Recently she found an old calculator and she makes believe it is her computer. She puts it in her bag and tells me she is going to work.
K likes to chase the cats and try to kiss them. She doesn't understand why they won't stay still.
T is a big fan of our neighbor's dog. She is very in tune to the barking and gets so excited saying "doggie, doggie, doggie".
T can't get enough of it. This girl can eat and eat and eat. The other night she got up in the middle of the night and got in bed with K and I. As we were both dozing off (I thought), she said mommy as sweet as can be. When I said yes she said eat. This little lady has food on the brain 24/7.
K is getting more adventerous with food but her favorites are still oatmeal and cheerios.
K is very eager to have puffs. She point to pictures and really tries to get enough hair together to make it happen.
T still struggles with the wash, so does her momma. I'm surpried the neighbors don't call the cops she screams so loud.
K is a loyal momma's girl. Affection is 24/7. She still needs momma to sleep. We're working on that one.
T has forgiven me for totally disrupting our perfect little lives. She gives lots of kisses but they are always on her terms.
I tag Malia's mom.
