This morning Chloe and I were doing our daily kitchen routine of loading the dishwasher, wiping the counter, etc. Chloe was begging me to put her up on the island. I told her no and that I was almost done anyway. She let out a big sigh and dropped her head in dismay. Then she looked up at me with her big, brown, puppy dog eyes, lifted her shirt up, put her hand over her heart, and said "Mommy Chloe's heart-beep is broken". She dropped her head again and quickly walked away.

I'd say it was a good buy. It is now 2:26 in the afternoon and Chloe has been playing nonstop with her dollhouse since 10:00 this morning. She was so excited that she wouldn't even eat her breakfast! We love playing pretend with her. She calls the Mom "Mommy Alexis" and she named the little girl "Maryanne". We are amazed with the scenarios she comes up with.

Whew (wipes sweat off brow). We found out on Friday that we are not having twins. Of course we would welcome the blessing of two babies, but we are relieved that we are only having one. We are still getting used to the idea that we are going to have ten more little fingers and ten more little toes around here. Miss Chloe has changed our life in such an amazing way. We can hardly imagine what this little bundle will bring.

Okay, we have been having a lot of discussion about the natural goings on of the human body. Yeah, I am talking about pee and poop. Chloe has begun potty training, we have a long way to go, but we are excited about getting started. So, earlier this evening she was pointing to where she pees and where Poppa pees. Then she turned around and pointed to where the poopy comes out and then pointed to where Poppa's poopy comes out. No big deal right? Here is the funny part, she then turned around stuck out her booty and bumped up against Poppa's booty and in a very excited voice said "cheers"!
I'm telling you, this kid keeps us in stitches.

We were at the store a few days ago when Chloe spotted this tutu. We weren't planning on buying it for her, but she ran all over wiggling her hips, twirling in circles, and watching herself in the mirror. Doug looked at me "juicy eyed", that is when I knew the tutu was going home with us. She is all about dancing in her tutu. We went on a walk at Mamaw and Pa's place today and I just threw the rain boots, so she wouldn't get all wet. They looked so cute with her tutu, so I had to grab my camera and take a "few" shots.

|Poppa showing Chloe how to blow bubbles at a friends "Bubble Birthday" party at McCormicks Creek|
|Chloe racing to pop the bubbles.|
|We went on a little hike the nearby "waterfall off" as Chloe calls it. This was her reaction to seeing a waterfall for the first time.|
|We were getting pretty tired at this point. Poppa snapped this shot of us staring off. |
