The Art of Imitation

We've reached the point in toddlerhood where  (yes, I officially say toddler now that she's actually toddling) EVERYTHING has the potential of being repeated by Lily and some already has started. Cue the watching your language, huz. ;)

My not-so-little guy who approaching his 12th birthday and is filled with emotions all over the place experienced this last week.  He is in the place where everything his parents ask him to do, we get an exasperated sigh in response. I asked him to do something.... As soon as he finished his big sigh, his baby sister responded with the same exact noise.  He turned his head sharply to look at me with wide-eyes.  I just said, "That's exactly what we've been talking about regarding being a role model. She looks up to you and will do and try to do everything you do. Both the good and the bad."  Actually, her reaction was the kick in the butt to nip his it's-the-end-of-the-world-that-you've-asked-me-to-do-anything reactions.  Score one for Lily.  So, yeah the tween and the baby teaching each other. 

My husband is a loud nose blower. He's a lot of wonderful things.  This is not one of them.

Like, you can't hear someone talk when he blows his nose, loud. 

Like, it scares Lily loud. She who doesn't like the vacuum cleaner, hair dryer, handmixer, lawnmower, drill sounds and screams and cries, reacts the same to her daddy blowing his nose.  Until recently.


  1. Oh the cuteness of a baby blowing her nose! Love it

  2. That's hilarious! I bet she sounds much cuter than G. Sorry G!

  3. After hearing George blowing his nose while we were on the phone the other night, I'm crying laughing watching this.

    So, so funny.
