Oh this little girl.


Azalea no longer sits in her high chair that is connected to the table. Now that she is a "big girl" she chooses to sit in a regular chair with the rest of us, happily perched atop a gigantic phone book. Finally we have a use for that thing.

She's also taken to wearing that hat around the house all day long which is a fashion statement her father and I can really get behind.


Azalea can put her pink boots on all by herself. I did not teach her how to do this. One day she came to me and said "boots!" and she was wearing them. On the right feet. She prefers to wear them with no pants.

She also enjoys carrying stools, books, and other elevated objects around the house so that she can then climb on top of them and jump off of them. Again, not something we taught her.


Azalea's latest dinner of choice is popcorn (ka-corn). Here's an actual conversation:
Me: Zayley, what should mommy make for dinner tonight?
Z: Ka-corn (nods solemnly)
Me: Popcorn?
Z: Yeah. Okaaaay. Sure!

Oddly enough, popcorn is my dinner of choice also.


Azalea and I went to the zoo today and she walked pretty much the entire time.

Me: Zayley, do you want to go to the zoo today?
Z: ANIMALS! Raff, Effant, Zeeba, Backpack!
Me: Okay, I guess we're going to the zoo.


I really like hanging out with her.

I also wish I had her style.

This morning Nate was telling Azalea that her birthday was coming up soon and that we would have birthday presents and birthday cake. She thought the idea of cake sounded so great that she decided to sit herself down at the kitchen table and have some.

Yes, cake.

Unfortunately, there was no cake in the house.


Lucky for this little girl, she has a thoughtful dad who brought home some cake from Safeway after work.

She got her cake

She does love her some "choca-cake."
