"I am absolutely not big. I am still really quite small"







this ones all about little miss arden betty. its amazing to me how much growing our little lady has done in just a few weeks. she is talking up a storm, and not only that...shes so funny! i cant even beleve some of the things shes doing....heres a few.

so yesterday we are getting ready to go out shopping and she insists on wearing her pink tu-tu. im big on letting her express herself and have fun with what shes wearing, so i let her. so out she went....tu-tu, pink tights and snow boots (it was hot) so we're in wal mart and this cute little old lady comes up to us to pinch ardens cheeks and tell her how pretty she is. im smiling and saying thank you, when arden raises her finger and tells the lady " i have a boogie" and what do you know, she has the hugest lime green split pea soup colered curly booger on the tip of her finger!! i could have died! not only was she wearing a halloween costume, but she got ketchup on it from lunch and she looked like tinkerbell who just crawled out of a dumpster. lucky for us the sweet lady handed me a tissue. we were out of there in a heart beat...only the lady gave us wal mart stickers so my dumpster baby had yellow smiley faces all over her to complete the look. the one on the tip of her nose stayed there even as i took the little sleepy head out of the car and in her bed.

next, last night we went to dinner and an old man with a long grayish white beard sat behind us. we were almost finised with dinner when the man excused himself to the bathroom, and arden said "wheres my santa?" and im puzzled, going "what do you mean baby?" i looked over at beau and his eyes are the size of golf balls. "she thinks that man is santa" he says. when we got up to walk out she pointed at him and said "thats my santa" over and over. i wanted to tell him what she ment but didnt want to offend. it was hillarious! here are a few more arden bettys finest.

Love this post Emm! SHe is seriously beautiful. I can't believe how big she looks to me. I think I think of her as a little baby too with that little hairless head :)! THat is so funny that she says my tummy hurts for attention. Lexi still uses that same line when she is feeling a little neglected. I bet you are the raddest mom! :)
