Hannah's Ballet Video
Here is the video of Hannah's "Ballet Recital". Recorded straight from our living room. Joey put it to some of Hannah's music so that you wouldn't have to listen to me telling Hannah to move the bar so I could see her and to dance. The video site would only let me upload 2 minutes of video and it stops abruptly but, she did this for 30 minutes last night. Thank you for coming to Hannah's, sit back and relax, enjoy the show! Now you have to sing it like they do at Loew's movie theatre.

Does That Come In Pink!
I definitely have a girl. Hannah loves to twirl around in her Sunday dresses and watch them flair out. Something she has just discovered she can do. My mom got her a slip today that is a petticoat and Hannah insisted that she needed to wear just that around the house today for about an hour. She has also discovered dancing. She loves to dance and be twirled around. We went to Wal-Mart tonight after dinner and Hannah saw a ballerina set that she wanted. I thought it was extra cute so, I catered and I bought the tutu and ballerina shoes and Maw Maw got her the mat, bar and video. She watched the video and danced as soon as she got home and she couldn't even wait to get home for the slippers. Those were put on in the car on the way home. Tomorrow Joey is going to teach me how he gets video from our video camera to the computer and I'll put a video of her dancing on here. She was so cute in her little tutu and ballet slippers. She should sleep good tonight, she twirled and danced around the living room for 20-30 minutes solid. Now she is wanting to watch the video of herself dancing. So...off I go to hook the video camera up to the T.V.!
Isn't she sweet!

Hannah On The Catwalk
We had our ladies banquet today and Hannah modeled a baby's shirt from Guatemala. She was so cute walking up to the stage. I will definitely post a picture of her in her get up as soon as I get one. The banquet was a lot of fun but, I am glad to sit and rest now for a while. I haven't had that much time lately to post to the blog because I have been busy printing things for the banquet. Tickets, invitations, programs...you name it. But now I should have more time to do this...which I have missed terribly!
Hannah said two things today that we thought were funny. On the way home from the banquet she sneezed and Maw Maw said that Hannah said, "I blessed my nini out of my mouth!" My mom said, "you what?" Hannah said, "when I blessed me, my nini falled out...when I sneezed!"
This afternoon Hannah brought a movie to me and said, "wead dis to me," pointing to the video. "It says, 'Rudolf The Red Nosed Reindeer,'" I told her. A few minutes later she points to the video and says, "I want to watch 'the red nosed bambi!'"
So, I know I've had quite a few posts with no pictures but, I promise a picture later tonight or tomorrow. Just because I know
wants to see pictures of my baby. I feel like that grandma that walks around with a brag book...hey, here's a website that you should check out, it's www.hannahdaze.blogspot.com!! People just look at me like, "HUH?"

The Sky Is Falling, The Sky Is Falling!
Actually Hannah's nini just fell...in the potty. And you would have thought the sky was falling. Especially when she found out that I was going to throw it away! As if she didn't have 20 of the things lying around...we're going to the store to get a new one. Heaven help us! We have to do something

We Have Tomatoes!!!
We have two tomatoes on one of the plants...one that Joey got and planted. Hannah was so excited. She was running and jumping in the back yard and clapping her hands when she saw them. Of course, Joey thinks it's because he planted the plant that it has tomatoes on it. I say he bought it with them on there and didn't show us until today! But...we have tomatoes. I don't know why I'm so excited...I really detest the things but, I am excited they are there! And there are some blooms on a couple of other plants. I didn't think they would get tomatoes this soon...shows what I know about gardening! I'll have to take a picture in the daylight tomorrow so you can see them!
I'm so excited!

Sketties, Gum & Creepy Underwear, Oh My!
Hannah loves vegetables, strange as that may be. I have never seen a 2 year old put away salad like Hannah does. I'm glad, don't get me wrong, I think it's wonderful that she prefers grilled broccoli with lemon juice to french fries. Makes my job that much easier! Last night for dinner, we went to Buca de Beppo with Hannah's Mimi and Papa. When the salad came to the table we got ready to eat and Hannah pulled Mimi's plate from in front of her and said, "I put dis here," promptly spitting her gum onto Mimi's salad plate! Later when the entrees came, Hannah was eating a dish that had linguini noodles on it and she found the easiest way to eat them was to dive in (literally) and pull up a mouth full, then slurp the remaining strands of the noodle into her mouth. It made for an incredibly delightful scene. Let's just say I was glad that I had insisted on stopping by the store to pick up some bibs before we got there as I had forgotten to pack some in the diaper bag. Perhaps some time soon we will move to a more refined manner of eating and use our utensils but, it was kind of cute at the moment. The pictures were taken with our phones so the quality isn't that great but, you can kind of get the idea.
Just a while ago, I took Hannah to the potty then went to get her a new pair of panties (the bathroom door had been shut and she tried on her own first but couldn't get it open in time). When she looked at the stack of underwear on the couch she informed me that she didn't like a particular pair. I asked her why, expecting her to tell me they were uncomfortable or too small, something like that. Her response, "dere just pweepy to me!" Huh? Maybe it's the flowers or the colors...I'm not sure what it is about them that she finds creepy!

Make-up, Blocks, Bottles And Monies!
The other night Hannah wanted me to "play make-up" with her. I had a million things that I needed to be doing but, what did I do? I played make-up with her. I figure it'll be soon enough that she is telling me to go away and she wont care how I think she should wear her make-up so...the million things to do could wait for then! She was even sweet enough to paint my finger nails.
Painting her own toe nails. I have no idea where she learns this stuff!
I have found a new way of keeping Hannah contained...if that is possible. She is content to stay in her play pin on occasion and I can get a thing or two accomplished while she plays...in one spot and out of trouble. As long as her blocks are in the play pin with her she will play for about 10 or 15 minutes at a time! And that is a lot! I discovered this the other day when I was working on taxes. I think I will leave the play pin out for a while, at least until it stops working.
Today we went to CVS to pick up a prescription for my yucky sinus infection and while we were there Hannah found some baby bottles that she thought she had to have. Like I've said, she can't go in a store and not find something she wants! I kept telling her that I was not buying bottles, that she was a big girl and she did not need bottles. It took them a few minutes to fill the prescription and while we waited we looked around the store...all the while Hannah is carrying these bottles around insisting that she needed them, "tause I a baby, I not a big dirl!" I didn't get too excited about the bottles and decided that I would wait until it was time to go to insist that she put them back on the shelf. O.k. so I was hoping that she would loose interest and I wouldn't have to fight with her about it! Guess what. It worked. After telling the starter set of playtex bottles, " I not put you back neber neber neber," she found something else that she deemed a better buy. Play money! Joey was with her when she saw the money and he said that she walked right back to the baby section, put the bottles back where she got them from then ran back around the corner to the toy aisle, picked up the play money and said, "I need some monies!" So what is a daddy to do? He put the play monies on the counter and said, "we need this, mama!" So...I bought the money!

A Child After My Own Heart
My mom says that I deserve a child like Hannah. We went to Super Target today and I kid you not, every aisle we went down she found something that she wanted. About halfway through the toy section...because there was no passing it up...my mom went beyond the realm of the mother's curse. She started teaching Hannah the phrase, "if you don't ask, you don't get!" That was just wrong!
We managed to make it out of there with only a new make up set for her! And guess who paid for it...yep, Maw Maw did! Maybe I will start teaching Hannah to tell Maw Maw that she
wants some of the things that I actually want...maybe a video ipod or a digital video camera...hum maybe a mani/pedi gift certificate! I'll just borrow Hannah's!
Here she is in this picture after her make over. Looks more like she had a beating rather than a make over but, that's o.k. She had fun with the make up and she is still adorable.

The Funny Things Hannah Says!
Here is a picture of Hannah by the fountain outside of the Museum of Natural Science. We went there last Friday with Meme and Papa. After walking around for probably 2 hours or so, we were all tired. When we got into the elevator to leave, Meme was holding Hannah and said, "oh Hannah, Meme's pooped!" Hannah got a funny look on her face and I had an idea what was coming next. I just didn't realize she would ask so loudly. She looked at Meme and said, "oh, are you poo pooed in your panties?" The funniest part about that was that there were other people in the elevator! Everyone laughed except a teenaged boy. I don't think he knew what the appropriate response to that was!

More Tomato Plants?
Yesterday Hannah and I went to our weekly mom's luncheon (which by the way we are thinking of calling Desperate Housewives...kidding!). When we were done, Joey took me for a treat...he's so sweet! I got a pedicure. I love getting pedicures but, I don't have the plethora of time to go get them done as often as I would like (everyday). Anyway, while I got a pedicure he took Hannah to the plant store and then to Wal-mart and got two more tomato plants! Ahhhhh! If these really work out, don't ask me what we are going to do with so many tomatoes when the only person in the house that will eat them is Hannah! The plants that they got yesterday are called sweet one hundreds and they came highly recommended by a lady that used to go to our church. She said that she gets two handfuls of cherry tomatoes off of hers everyday! I hope we're that lucky!
So I'll post some pictures of the proud gardeners after while. Right now I need to get ready to go to Wal-mart...it's a daily thing you know!

I had planned on posting this Sunday night but, I was too tired to get on the internet by the time we got home. I was ready for bed! Then I had thought I would post earlier today (actually yesterday) but, I was working on taxes...YUCK! So here I am posting at almost 4:00 in the morning. I have got to get on a better schedule! Anyway...here are a few pictures of Hannah on Easter. She was so cute in her yellow dress. I could have kicked myself too, because we had the Easter egg hunt at church and I forgot to take the camera! The play ground at church looked so fun with all of the eggs sprinkled in the grass! There were almost 400 eggs in the play ground area and by the walk way to the children's building.
Hannah seemed to love her dress, especially when she would twirl and her dress would flare out. She must have spun around 100 times. She kept asking her daddy if he wanted to dance with her. Did I mention that she was so pretty? She is adorable all the time but, she was so sweet looking when she was all dressed up! And dancing with her daddy was extra sweet! She wanted him to spin her around but, everytime he would do it she got so excited that she ended up spinning faster than he was twirling her.
Here she is with aunt Leigh Anne just before they left the house to come to church.
I love this picture of her holding her little purse that matched her dress. She brought a couple of her Easter basket goodies to church in her purse. She was sure she would need her swimming goggles during the service, gum is a neccesity during church and the people up front looked better through the view master!
I must say that she has gotten better about letting us take her picture. There for a while if she even saw the camera out, she was most uncooperative! Yes, sweet little Hannah, uncooperative! Now she has this fake smile that she does when she says cheese it's more like, "chhheeeeeeeeeessssee!" Funny girl!
Joey and I had to be at church early to practice with the choir and get ready for Sunday School. Hannah wasn't even awake when we left. We tried to get her up so we could see her with her basket but, she was conked out. I was sad that we didn't see her with her basket when she woke up. Maybe next year the Easter bunny will have to come while we are at church...if we have to leave again before she gets up. Maw Maw said that Hannah saw her basket and said, "look at all de stuff de Easer bunny brought me. Wow, dats amazing!"
Hannah got a view master in her basket and here is Papa checking out Curious George! He didn't know that I was taking his picture when he was looking into the view master. Haha! He did see the flash though. He said, "who's takin' my picture?" At one point he was concentrating so hard that he had his tongue sticking out. Wish I would have had the camera then! Haha!

Tonight we finally got around to dying the Easter Eggs! It's about time, don't you think? Hannah helped in every way...from putting the dye tablets in the cups to wanting to dump the dye into the sink when we were done. Which was great until she knocked over the green cup that had only the green tablet and vinegar in it! Yeah, now the table has a nice little...er big...green spot on it!! Oops! Oh well, she had fun tonight so I guess that is what really counts...right Maw Maw? Sorry 'bout your table! She wore one of her Daddy's old t-shirts and when we were done she didn't want to take it off. She said, "no, I wanna leep in dis Daddy's shirt!" But, she had to have a bath so eventually we got the shirt off. And remarkably the dye came off of her little fingers and face (it splashed). Now she wont have dyed fingers to go with her pretty yellow dress.
Tonight after her bath, Hannah put some carrots and a juice box out on the table for the Easter bunny, then went to bed...the first time. After she got still, I got up to finish some things that I needed to do for tomorrow and on the way past the kitchen table, I ate a few of the carrots and made it look like the Easter bunny had done it. Then she got up. Fortunately I had not filled her basket and she didn't notice the carrots were missing! Back to bed...the second time!
I could hear her and Maw Maw in the room talking so I stuck my head in there and Hannah was hiding under the covers. Maw Maw said, "she's hiding from the Easter bunny, Mama!" So I said, "I am
the Easter bunny...hop hop hop!" Hannah pops out from under the covers and says, "no you're not, you don't have ears!" This gave me an idea! Hannah has a bunny ear head band that we got her last year or the year before and they were in her toy box. So I went and got the head band and snuck over behind the door then started tapping and stuck just the ears out far enough for her to see them. I couldn't see her face but, Maw Maw said that she just looked, trying to see around the corner! She did have a somewhat relieved look on her face when she saw that it was just me! When we asked her if I scarred her, she said, "yes!" But...she didn't cry or anything so I don't think I traumatized her!
Well, she got out of bed about 3 more times and she is finally back there to stay I think! I hope! I have filled her basket and stuffed candy into 212 plastic eggs for the egg hunt at church tomorrow. That was fun! So now I think it is time for me to end the marathon post and head to bed myself! Hopefully tomorrow I will have a chance to post pictures of her in her dress and doing other fun Easter stuff.

We Have Jalapeños And Other Creepy Things!
This morning I went out to water the tomato plants and the jalapeño plant and I noticed that one of the blooms on the jalapeño plant was brown and wilted but, it had this funny looking thing sticking out of it! That funny looking thing was a jalapeño! Then later I saw another and another and another. We have four jalapeños!!! I can't believe it! They are tiny and most definitely not ready to eat but, they are there! Tell me...just how do you know when a jalapeño is ripe? Right now it is the same color as every other jalapeño I have ever seen! Hannah was so excited when she heard that we had a jalapeño on her plant. She has no idea what it is but, she is thrilled about it! She also knows that she should NOT touch that plant. "It's hot," she says!
Then tonight we went out to show Maw Maw the jalapeño and as we are all standing around the plant out slithers a little snake from the crack in the cement! I jerked Hannah up so fast that she came right out of the shoes that she was wearing! Granted they were my house shoes (she loves our shoes and is always wearing them around the house) but, it looked like the rapture of Hannah! That thing scared the daylights out of me! I have no idea what kind of snake it was but, it is a dead one in our trash can now! Now I'm kind of scared to go out there. After that we went to dinner and I let Hannah crawl over to her carseat and I buckled her in from inside the car. There was no way on earth that I was going to stand in the grass to buckle her carseat while the mama, brothers and sisters of the snake that we had just killed crawled up my leg! No way! I've got the creeps just thinking about it!

I know I haven't posted as many pictures lately as I was there for a while but, I really have had a lot to do lately. I knew I had taken a few pictures of Hannah in the last few days but, I couldn't remember what she was doing until I downloaded them off of the camera tonight. It seems that while I have been busy with my projects, Hannah has had a few of her own that she was working on. And...suddenly I remember why it seemed like it took an act of congress for me to get anything done! Here is the lipstick project. I remember now that when I walked into the bathroom to check out the silence...I scared Hannah and she actually screamed!! I'm telling you the child is sneaky! I have mentioned before that she and her daddy can be quite the loud ones at times but, she knows
when to be quiet. She was very quiet and that is what made me decide to check on her...she was too quiet!
Here she is using her little chair as a stepping stool to reach the squirt bottle. You can't see the ice tray in this picture but, she was trying to fill the thing up with the squirt bottle. Evidently she had been there awhile because it was half full! I promise...I do watch her! That is how she managed to get craft wiggle eyes up each side of her nose! You will be glad to know that she was sitting right next to me when she did that. I watch her...apparently I watch her do things that she shouldn't be doing! Tell me, what makes kids stick things up their noses anyway. Joey stuck play dough up his, my sister stuck a marble up hers, I used to baby sit a boy that stuck a little ball up his and I knew a guy in high school who stuck a peanut up his. What is up with that? I think I can honestly say that I have never had the desire to cram something into my nose.
On another note...why are there so many ridiculously dumb people in the world? Granted, I am not a rocket scientist nor will I ever be but, PAH-LEAZE! Monday I went to have some things printed off at the print shop around the corner from our house and they looked terrible when I got them back. All the girl could say was, "it makes a nice effect." ~~Lady...if I wanted an "effect" on my print job, wouldn't I have put that on the file or on the original? Then tonight on the way home from working out Joey and I stopped at Kroger to get some Prilosec and Zantac...we have problems o.k.! I picked up the box of Zantac that had a free sample of Rolaids Soft Chews...thinking, hey a free sample! When we got to the check out stand the lady rings them up and they were $3 more than I thought the sticker on the shelf said. So she does a price check...lovely...we wait! When she comes back she has the same box in her hand only it doesn't have the FREE sample on it. She says to me...and I quote..."the one that doesn't have the free sample on it is $3 less." HELLLLL-LLOOOOO! ~~~Lady, if the one with the "FREE" sample costs more than the one without it, IS THE FREE SAMPLE REALLY FREE???? People like these could quite possibly be the reason I have a heart condition!

The Bunny & Wiggly Eyes
So here is Hannah's Easter bunny picture. She was so excited when I told her that we were going to the mall to eat and then to find the Easter bunny. Suddenly her voice went from normal to very very loud and she was screaming at the top of her lungs. "Alwight, we dunna doe fine de Easer bunny...an I dunna sit on him lap and dit my piture taken wit him!" Then when we actually found the bunny, the volume went up even higher!! "I SEE HIM, DERE HE IS, HI EASER BUNNY, HE SAW ME AND HE MILING AT ME! OH HE LIKES ME! I LUB DAT EASER BUNNY!" You would have thought it was an announcement on the loud speaker.
Hannah, on wiggly eyes...you should never put one up each nostril, it is very hard to breathe that way! Enough said!

The Missing H!
One more day with out any pics! Sorry. I'll try and get some tomorrow. I was thinking about going out and finding some ducks for Hannah to feed (if it isn't too hot) and maybe we'll make it to the mall for a picture with the Easter bunny.
As for Hannah's H. I wanted to scan it and put it on here so that everyone could see it. They said they brought it home from the restaurant...it was on the back of a menu...but, now they can't find it. So not only did I miss seeing her do it but, I also have yet to see the first one. I'm sad! She has drawn a few more for me though! I love it when she draws it because she says, "one line down, and anudder one and one apross here like dat!" That is exactly what I told her when I was showing her how to do it. See, she does listen to me! On the way to church tonight I was showing Hannah a lower case h and she said, "oh, what dat ledder is?" "It's a little h," I said. To which she responds gasping, "I lub little h's!" With her hands clasped to her chest and all! It was so cute!

H Says Hhuhhh!
O.k. so it's the 3rd post without pictures. I have been at a Women of Faith Conference this weekend and haven't been able to take any pictures of Hannah the last few days. I had a great time at the conference but, I missed Hannah terribly! Some of the ladies from our group stayed the night in a hotel down by the convention center...not me, I had to come home to check on my girl! Anyway, what does Hannah do while I'm gone? She reaches a milestone! Of course! She drew two H's! I've been trying to get her to do it for a week or so now and she finally did it. Some may think that it was just a coincidence that her drawing looked like an H but, I have been working on it with her and when she draws it she says, "it's a H." Or she'll ask me, "do you want me to wite a H on your paper for you?" I really didn't expect her to do it this soon but, she did.
Tonight on the way home from dinner Joey was complaining about not feeling well because all he felt like he had done today was eat. To which Hannah reached over patted him on the face and said, "I sorry you ate too much!" She's so sweet...no wonder I missed her so much this weekend.

She's Going To Marry Her Daddy And Cowboy Woody!
As I was sitting here in front of the computer getting ready to get up and go to bed, I hear Hannah singing a song beside me. It's a little ditty that goes something like this, "I'm dittin' married, I'm dittin' married yes I am. Doo Doo Doo. I'm dittin' married, I'm dittin' married, ooo ooo ooo" and it repeats unendingly. So, curious as I was, being the mother of the bride and all...I asked her when she was getting married and she said, "white now! White here, I am!" In the tone of can't you see! "Oh, so who's the lucky fella," I asked. "Uhm Daddy, and Woody!" Woody as in the cowboy on Toy Story.
She is going to marry a cowboy, isn't she?

Today when I laid down with Hannah to try and get her to take a nap, I fell asleep! Imagine that! When I woke up...she wasn't in the bed with me anymore. Imagine that! I know she didn't sleep at all because I really wasn't asleep that long but, I must have been sleeping pretty hard because I didn't hear or feel her getting out of the bed. Talk about a creepy feeling. And...our bed is pretty high up but, she didn't make a sound. I think she must have had a plan because she was very quiet and when I was putting my make-up on later I noticed that all of my make-up was out of my bag. The blush was open along with the mascara and eyeshadow! I have no idea where my moisturizer is!
So this evening she had about a 30 minute nap in the car. Joey and I went to work out at about 11 PM and got back home at almost 2 AM and she was still awake! What in the world is up with that? I also had a very hard time getting her to eat anything today. Don't you just love days like that? She wasn't bad, just kind of uncooperative! But, she did have two baths so if nothing else she is clean!

Dese Are Por My Pwants!
Tonight Hannah brought a handful of cherry tomatoes into the room where we were and announced, "dese are por my pwants to eat!" Somehow I think she is confused about the tomato plants!
Today we had our weekly play date with Hannah's friends. We brought sack lunches to the church and ate and played there. I told Hannah as we were leaving that we would get her bounce house and take it with us so that her friends could jump in there with her. I wish I had a recording of her excitement! She ran up to her daddy and said, "mama said I dunna take my bounce house so my fwiends tan jump wit me!"
Afterwards we took Hannah up to Mimi's school to see her and then went to dinner with her. Hannah then wanted Mimi come to her house and see her plants that she still insists have grown! I had thought she might fall asleep in the car at some point...that didn't happen! After Mimi left Hannah crawled up on the couch and layed on top of me! And then, as you can see, she fell fast asleep! On top of me!
On another note, my quest for low cal food has reached a new level. Let me just say from the get go, I DON'T DO VEGETABLES! I'm not sure where Hannah got her fancy for things like broccoli and tomatoes but, it certainly wasn't from me! I only like a few vegetables and the ones I do like are the starchy ones...that supposedly aren't as good for you as the others! Go figure! And when I do eat them, I really prefer they have the nutrients cooked out of them and they should be soaking in a pool of butter! Well, Joey says that your body uses more calories to digest celery than celery has in it so I thought, that sounds good and tonight when I was having an extra hungry night and I decided that I would eat celery! Now pick yourself up off of the floor and listen to this! I tried it with just a dab of peanut butter to see if that would help the poor thing out a little. Did you know that in addition to it taking more calories to digest, celery also takes the taste of peanut butter away! So if you don't like peanut butter but, need to eat some for some reason...try it with celery!

My Tomatoes Are Bro-wing!
Today we went and got Hannah some tomato plants. I've been wanting to grow some for her because I hear the fresh ones are the best and she absolutely LOVES
tomatoes! I have no idea where she gets that from because Joey and I both find tomatoes disgusting! Anyway, we went to the plant store and asked all about them and then bought six tomato plants and one jalapeno plant. We can make fresh salsa!!! Yummy! Hannah had a great time playing in the dirt (cause I never
let her!) and she even managed to get most of it in the pots. Amazing! Although one time she did say, "I dunna do dis," as she tumped one of the pots on it's side, pouring a pile of dirt out! Aaaahh! I don't know what possessed her to do that.
It was so hot and muggy here today. I wondered why on earth I decided to do this today! It didn't seem to bother Hannah though. I had intended to pot them without getting real dirty. Didn't work out so great. Dirt sticks amazingly well to sweat! After we were done and we got her cleaned up, she took a little nap and when she woke up she said, "my tomatoes are bro-wing!" I didn't see it but, she insisted they were getting bigger! She was convinced that she would have tomatoes tonight. She kept wanting to know when Mimi and Papa & Bro. Mark and Lynn were coming over to eat tomatoes with her! I guess I should have been more specific when I told her that tomatoes were going to grow on those plants! But, I do think she'll have fun watching them grow, if she doesn't get bored waiting for them to get tomatoes on them. Hopefully my thumb is green enough to actually grow them. Really though, how hard can it be? Guess we'll soon find out!

Camping In The Living Room
This weekend Hannah got a tent! It's a great thing! It's set up where else but, the living room! She played in it half the morning Saturday...at least long enough for me to get ready to go to a birthday party. I told her that it would be a great place to sit with a pillow and blanket while she reads her books. "Oh, I want some books in here. Doe dit me some of my books so I tan read 'em," she said! But, I don't think she really read much. Maw Maw got in there with her and I got a picture of her in there but, I was told not to dare put that picture on the blog! It's not a bad picture either! But, I guess wont put the picture of her in the tent on here! Since it is her digital camera that I took the pic with! Hannah also keeps wanting to get in "dere and doe to leep!" Funny thing is that she never goes to sleep once she is in there! I don't think she'll be spending the night in there any time soon. Unless she just happens to fall asleep in there. Then I think I might worry about her sleeping in the living room all by herself and I will have to sleep in there with her. On the floor! On second thought, hopefully she wont fall asleep in there, although that is
my kind of camping!
Hannah also went to a birthday party this weekend. She has been to a couple of other children's birthday parties but, the first one she was too young to realize what was going on and at the other one was small and there weren't a whole lot of people there. I think she really had fun at Speedy's birthday party. They had an Elmo piñata and Hannah got to take a whack at it! Some of the people that were there, we didn't even know and what was funny was that someone there that I had never met before said to me, "is that Hannah? Hannah from the blog?" So now I think I'll teach Hannah that song that JLo sings and change the words to, "I'm just Hannah from the blog!"
