New Aspenisms

Aspen: Hey, where'd my hair go?


Grammie: See Aunt Laura's glasses?

Aspen: I like eyes.


Aspen: (toots)

Mommy: Excuse you tooter!

Aspen: Here comes another one!

(she is her father's daughter)


Aspen: What's oar name?

Translation: What's your name?


Aspen: I want hungry!

Translation: She's hungry.


Aspen: Hold you!

Translation: She wants you to hold her.


Aspen: Rock you!

Translation: She wants you to rock her.


While walking by a window display of wildly painted and decorated cowboy boots, Aspen stops and says "Hey, it's Grammie's shoes!"


While shopping in Old Navy, Aspen is playing with a football. She looks at it and says "hey it's Grandpa!" I take the football and turn it over to find she was looking at a picture of a ghost.

Aspen is so much fun right now! And she's so much work right now! She is a busy, chatty, messy little hurricane!

Aspen LOVES to sing and dance. She will talk and talk and talk. Sometimes the words are real, and sometimes they are not. If you say a word while she's chattering away, she will work it into her conversation.

She likes to put diapers on everything. All of her animals and even her ken doll, whom she has affectionately named Marshall, after her cousin, have diapers on.

She lines things up as well. Books, clothes, toys, her food, whatever.

Aspen has discovered the movie Cinderella. We watch it every day.

I love my little girl!

Poor Ken (Marshall)

Road trip! Momma (with kids in tow) Style!

About a month and a half ago (yes, I am behind), my fantastic friend Amanda invited Aspen and I to join her and her boys on a trek up to Portland. No husbands, lots of active kiddos, two nights in a hotel room, a bunch of chat time, and a ton of fun. The main highlight of our trip was going to the zoo!

Same side snoozers.

Aspen had a bit of trouble settling down for sleeping, because her "fwends" were much more interesting :/

Aspen had to hold J's hand nearly the entire time at the zoo, he was very sweet to oblige.

Little birdies in a nest.

Daddy would have liked this exhibit.

This cracked me up, J was being a "lazy farmer."

Aspen's "fwends."

A grumpy cowgirl.

My cutie pie.

Aspen LOVED the hippos. "Hippo swimming."

The zebra was beautiful.

Aspen and mommy.

Aspen with her outfit inspiration in the background.

Pretty baby.

She may have loved this part more than the hippos!

Totally OUT!
