Happy 1st birthday to our precious little girl!!  I can't believe that it has been one year ago since we packed our bags and headed to the hospital for your birth.  I remember that day vividly.  I also remember the day we found out that we were having a GIRL!  Both Daddy and I cried with joy.  I love that determined look on your face when you want something.  I love that you want to do everything yourself; reaching for that last cheerio, picking up a toy you dropped even if you can barely stand, trying so hard to escape from the baby bouncer that you practically fall out, and trying to stand up in your high chair scaring the daylights out of Mamma.  I love that you LOVE to eat, bananas, my baby food, eggs, cheese, and cheerios.  I love that you have to stand and clap when you are happy.  I love that you try to sing with your brother when you hear him sing.  I love that you pretend to make car noises when you play with your brother's cars.  I love how much you HATE getting your nails cut, even more than your brother did.  I love that you will grab something and just throw it away when you don't want it.  I love that you will only sleep on your tummy while feeling the cotton bed sheet with your fingers, and it HAS to be COTTON.  I even love that you wake up at 4am every morning!  Happy 1st birthday to our little princess.  We love you so much.

You may have wondered where I've been.  Well, the second the calendar hits March 1st, my schedule at work has been crazy.  I've been so busy at work that by the time I get home my mind is completely drained so blogging has been unappealing to me.  But I do want to show you something I made a few months ago.  It's a puppet theater that I made out of a diaper box!

Basically, since last July, Buzz has been obsessed with the Big Bad Wolf.  Last July, when our nephews were visiting from Chicago, the boys were playing with our couch cushions to make a house.  So we played a three little pigs and the big bad wolf game where I pretended to be the big bad wolf and they had to hide in the cushion house.  Ever since then, Buzz LOVES to pretend that the big bad wolf is coming to get him.  He also LOVES any story that has the big bad wolf, specifically The Three Little Pigs and Little Red Riding Hood.  Of course when I tell him these stories I improvise and put him into the stories.  Instead of the Little Red Riding Hood it's Buzz and Ahgoo going to visit Grandma.  Since he LOVES my stories so much, I thought that he would really enjoy the stories told through the use of finger puppets.  Well I didn't want to spend money buying a fancy puppet theater so I decided to make my own.  

Lastly, here are a few funny things my 3-year-old said recently:
- After pooping on the potty, he got up and looked into the potty and said, "That looks like a cupcake!"  To which Daddy replied, "Not a very tasty one!"
- Buzz often asks for things.  If you tell him to hold on, he'll grab your arm/leg/shirt and say, "I'm holding on."
- Fifteen is often Fiveteen.
 
Can you tell that this used to be a diaper box from Costco?  Amazing what wrapping paper and trims can do.


So this isn't exactly Oscar-worthy set, but Buzz enjoyed my version of the ginger bread house!
