The girl's favorite things

Presley's top 10:
  1. "Pappy" - That would be her pacifier. We have started putting it up and reserving it just for nap time and night time. When she asks for it, we tell her that she's a big girl. So far we haven't had any melt downs. You know when she is too old for her "pappy" when it falls on the floor, she picks it up wipes it off three times with her other hand, and sticks it back in her mouth.
  2. Snapping together clasps/belts/buckles - They call out to her and she MUST snap them back together. She'll ask (or more appropriately, demand) you to "opey" the buckle so she can do it over and over and over. She can not pass it up, and likes to help me when I put Teagan in anything that has a buckle.
  3. Suckers - Big fan of anything in the candy family.
  4. "Bobo" - She calls powder "bobo" (because Price calls it 'bobo juice') and you must shake a little on her tush after each diaper change. She'll remind you if you happen to forget.
  5. Doodlebop CD - If we are in the car, we are listening to the Doodlebops.
  6. Monkey book - And after each monkey falls off the bed, she helps read "no mo monkey" jumping off the bed, while she wags her pointer finger.
  7. "OE" - Her cousin Chloe. She can't just say "OE", its "OE, OE, OE." She'll be fine and playing by herself and not even playing with Chloe, but when OE is about to leave, she has to cuddle and hung Chloe's neck really tight and practically make a scene.
  8. Babies - She loves to play with all her babies. She's particularly fond of this little baby boy cabbage patch (which was actually Price's when he was little). She brushes his hair while they watch Doodlebops. By the way, she doesn't like them to wear clothes.
  9. Taking off her diaper - She loves to take off her diaper off all by herself. And one very special day, she took it off after she had pooped and brought me a new diaper and a single wipe. However on her way, the dogs started barking, and she tee tee'd on the floor. I happened to have had my hands full at that exact moment nursing Teagan and pumping at the same time.
  10. Going anywhere - Whether its for a stroller ride, somewhere in the car, a ride in the wagon, or just out in the backyard, she is the first to grab her shoes and head to the back door. Never have to ask her twice.

Teagan's top 10:

  1. Nursing - She likes to eat! She has gotten to where she gets distracted and wants to partake in the conversation going on around her and not finishing her breakfast, lunch, dinner, or 5 or so snacks. She especially likes her 3+ night caps!
  2. Smiling with her tongue sticking out - Lately, if she's grinning, her tongue is sticking out at a point.
  3. Sleeping horizontal - She insists on being in her (or our, whichever) bed with the fan and all the other pre-rec's. She'll sleep in her carrier, too, sometimes...
  4. Dogs - Teagan shows a big interest in our dogs, Sassy Mama and Foxy Lady, when they come up and want some attention of their own. It's instant smiles (with her tongue sticking out).
  5. Cereal - She still loves this oatmealy concoction with a lumpy-clumpy consistancy. She opens her mouth wide and tries to grab the spoon, and can really put some back!
  6. Grabbing hair and face - Obviously not MY favorite, but she grabs the little hairs on your neck and a fist full of face and tries to eat the rest of your face. All I can say is OUCH!!
  7. Changing table - This child loves her changing table. She laughs and smiles and is gaga for a fresh diaper. This has stayed a favorite from since she was newly born!
  8. TV - This child is quite the couch potato. And I seriously don't use it, unless I really need to. I will say, I think she's Doodlebop's No. 2 Fan!
  9. Face kisses - I've kissed this child to sleep on more than one occasion. If she's fighting sleep, all I have to do is break out the face kisses and she gets really still, her eyes get heavy and she's sleeping before I know it!
  10. Presley - I catch her smiling at Presley all the time. In the mornings, she tries her hardest to get over to touch Presley. She'll roll over and grab her hair. And when Presley smiles back, Teagan squeals in delight! Sweet sisters!
Here's Presley after she fell asleep with her baby. You can see Teagan taking a nap at the same time

Here's Teagan in the "Rear Naked Choke" (for all you MMA fans). The look on her face tells me, she's trying to tap out! Here's Teagan playing on the mat with her cousin, Madden!

Tomorrow they are getting dedicated at church, so hopefully we'll get some cute pictures of them!

So my favorite part of this post is the pic of Preslee holding Teagan in the "rear naked choke"-such true MMA fans! Stevie will get a kick out of that one!
