Our Weirdest Child

We always call Ivy our weirdest child because we so often find her and hear her saying the funniest weird stuff.  It's probably mostly her age and the rest is because Joel is her father.

This is less funny and more scary but the other day Joel was outside paying in the backyard with Oskar and I thought Ivy was with them.  When I didn't see her out there for a while I went and checked in the house but couldn't find her anywhere.  I ran out to the front yard and saw that she had gone through the open garage door and had was sitting on my skateboard, riding it across the street!  I was so glad I thought to look for her and that no car hit her as she was riding across the street.  If we don't keep a sharp eye on her she gets into trouble.

Some more fun things about her:

She is obsessed with pink.

She loves wearing her princess and ballerina dress up clothes that we got from Keri.

She told me that she wanted to go to Keri's house because our house was too messy and yucky.

She said she didn't want to get married in the temple because she wants to stay with Oskar.

When she sings the ABCs when she gets to the letter q she sings, "q-you-you-you-you-you-r-s ...".  

She sings the ABCs ten million times a day.

She's completely potty trained finally.  We started months ago before Alvie was born but I had to take a break because I couldn't get up and down all day long with her.

She loves Alvie to a dangerous level.

She was fascinated with Alvie's belly button when the umbilical cord was still drying out as well as his penis when he got circumcised.  She often talks in public places about how she likes Alvie's penis now that it's not yucky.

She talks our ear off just like Oskar did and still does.

She saw Grandma put curlers in her hair and wanted to be like her.

I found her napping like this.

I don't know.

Snacking on an apple.  If an apple is whole and not cut into slices she calls it a plain apple.


If we ever don't know where she is, the first place we check is Joel's office.  Most of the time she's banging on his computer.

Snacking on a banana.


She sat in this chair at Marshall's for a solid five minutes like this.

Feeding DeeDee

She always takes her clothes off even though it's pretty cold in our house.

If she does leave any clothes on she wears her pants like this.

She feeds DeeDee pills too apparently.  The seal is unbroken, don't worry.

Smiling for a picture.

She had to go to the bathroom while we were on a hike I guess.

She's still the cutest!
