maybe it's just because we are her parents, but azalea has been majorly cracking us up lately with her antics, so i want to record them here because i know otherwise i will forget these little things down the road.
the other night, she was still awake in her room nearly an hour after we put her to sleep, so i went in there and we rocked in her chair for a bit and i rubbed her back. i thought for sure she fell asleep: her body was heavy on me, she hadn't moved or said anything for a long time. so, i slowly and carefully started to stand up, as not to wake her. i stood all the way up, and she was still completely limp on my shoulder. i slowly turned my head towards her, straining to see her face in the dark. all of a sudden, without lifting a muscle i hear her say loudly right in my ear "the poopies!!". i started laughing so hard and then she did as well. i don't think she was ever asleep. it was seriously hilarious. and for the record, she had not pooped.
i've mentioned before that azalea loves the band of monsters and men. we listen to them a lot and in one of their songs, they sing the lyrics "i know i know i know". azalea started belting it out herself recently. the first time she did it, we weren't even listening to music, but we knew exactly what she was singing. she's done it quite a few times since then. haha.
the other day i opened the back door for her to go out onto the patio. she spotted our neighbor bob on his patio next door, wearing just a pair of shorts (no shirt). she started getting really nervous and clinging to me, saying "mama carry, mama carry." so i picked her up and asked her why she was scared, and she blurts out "bob is nakey!" bahahaa. he got a kick out of that as well :)
