This And That

I wanted to write down a few more things Hannah has been saying lately  This girl makes me laugh every day.  Hannah was doing something funny and Scott said "Oh Hannah" and she just responded "Oh Scott" and added a big sigh. She also said "No sweetheart" to Scott.  I think her teacher at school calls her sweetheart (neither one of us calls her that) and she must say "no" a lot to Hannah :).  "Holy cow" and "That's cool" are new favorite.
Our little dancing queen
Chicken dance is always a favorite
  I had another interesting conversation with her yesterday (it was a mixture of english and german).  She packed her backpack full of essentials and said she was going to visit Volker (my brother).  I asked her how she was getting there and she said by car.  I told her that would be a long drive to Germany and she said "no mama to the airport". Ha!  Then she told me it is going to be a long flight.

Here she is all packed up.  She brought me my shoes so I could drive her to the airport.
When asking her what she is going to do with Volker she says "play with the cash register". My parents have a little grocery store for Hannah to play with when we are over there and my brother is always a good customer.  She has a couple of baby dolls and every time we ask her what their names are she says "baby Volker". Ha!

This week she also told me that she loves Simon and Bennett.  She talks about those two boys a lot!

We tested out her Easy Bake Oven that she got from Simon for her birthday yesterday.  She was really excited about baking a cake in her own oven.
She did not want to sit down to eat her lunch while the cake was baking (did you know the oven operates with a 100 watt light bulb......who knew a light bulb can bake a cake), so she stood there watching the oven while eating.
The finished product

We have been potty training at our house and it is going really well.  I am glad we waited until she was ready, because it has been pretty easy.  I haven't had to do much "training", she just decided she was ready for underwear and we went for it.  We have a few accidents here and there, but overall it is going great.  She is still in a diaper at night, but I am sure that will come with time. 
 Such a big girl!
Next up is taking the paci away (she only has it at night time). I am dreading that, but I know it is time.  I have waited this long, because Hannah has been such a terrible sleeper and the paci has always helped a lot.  She has been sleeping a lot better lately.  I  have not said that out loud yet, but I hope typing it will no jinx it.


  1. She is SO entertaining!! :-) So glad potty training went so well for you guys...I'm dreading it! Good to know that it's best just to wait until they're ready. I am the same way about Ben's paci - he has it at night and I don't want to mess with his sleep! ha!!

  2. Oh my! she could not be any cuter with her bags all packed and ready to go! She is getting so big!

  3. Happy Birthday Hannah! Love her princess dress and she is the best dancer.
