2nd Birthday Party - Gabba style!

We hosted Mungee's 2nd birthday party last weekend (or was it the weekend before last?  Time is moving too fast these days!)

Mungee's absolute favorite babysitter TV show is Yo Gabba Gabba.  I thought it was only fitting to have a Gabba themed party.

The biggest expenses were the bounce house rental and pizza.  I downloaded most of the paper decorations from the NickJr. website and Mungee's Pa printed them at his office.

I tried to make this look like the Yo Gabba Gabba! sign.  I said "tried".

Happy Birthday to you!

Conversations with a Toddler (Part Two)

I was about to nurse Mungee and she said "Don't bite the milks".  I said, "That's right, don't bite".  She said "It hurts mommy".  I confirmed.  Then she said "It hurts mommy's nipples".  She's very thorough, this one.

Oh, did I mention I'm still nursing her?  She's two now, and will be starting school in less than two weeks.  Weaning is inevitable.  Any tips on how to get my milk to dry up? (natural remedies only, please and thank you).

2 year stats:
26 pounds ~ 50th percentile
35 1/2 inches ~ 90th percentile
She's tall and skinny like me (HA HA HA HA HA HA HA!)

Happy Birthday Mungee!

Wishing my little baby toddler a very Happy 2nd Birthday! 

We're nowhere near ready all set for the big Yo Gabba Gabba birthday party this Sunday.  There will be a bounce house.  And cake.  And pizza.  And about 20 children between the ages of 9 months and 4 years old.  Somebody tell me all will go well ...

Conversations with a Toddler

Scene: Preparing lunch.  I asked Mungee if she wanted soup for lunch.  She said "hot!"  I said "I'll make it hot for you, but not too hot".  She replied "warm".

Scene: Mungee needs to get dressed.  Me or DH: "What do you want to wear today?"  Mungee: "Something cute!"

Scene: Me or DH: "Mungee, go show the baby in the mirror how cute you look".  Mungee, as she runs to the mirror, "I gonna say 'Awww'"

Scene: Mungee is by the bookshelf in her "number 2" pose.  She finishes and exclaims "Oh my goodness!  Biiiiiiig doo doo!"

Scene: The cat is trying to get through the cat door to the laundry room.  Mungee sits down next to her and says "How ya doin, Luna?"  (I've also heard her say "What's up, Luna?)

Scene: Mungee is having one of her daily conversations with the baby in the mirror.  "Dat my arm.  Dat my bawoon.  Dat my toys.  Dat my Violet.  Dat my ABCD.  Dat my dirt.  I see you later, I gotta go to work.  Bye bye."

Scene: Mungee is playing while I'm working.  I hear her say "I givin a ride to the bawoon! ... Hold on tight!" 

Scene: Mungee's Pa and I are listening to her over the monitor.  She sneezes.  Then says "Ewwwwww!  Booger!"

Scene: Mungee is laying on the changing table as I'm changing her diaper.  She says "What happened?"  I reply, "I'm changing your stinky doo doo."  She says "P-U! P-U! Ewwwwww!"

What's the funniest thing you've heard come out of your toddler's mouth?
