Watching the weather channel's coverage of the hurricane. Izzy sees the doppler of the hurricane and points and says "nest!"
Izzy brought her nest to me with her bird and said "sleep". This is a picture of her covering the baby and nest with "blankets" (kitchen towels) so the baby sleeps well. -Charla

Cute because she looks darling...or cute because she is quiet and out of everyone's hair?

I found this butter in the fridge. Since I didn't do it, and Zac probably didn't do it, I'll blame Izzy. It's not bitten, a butter knife was used to take butter, then it was placed back in the fridge. Izzy is even more of a Julia Child about butter and cream than I am. At least she put it back in the fridge and we didn't find it weeks later in some random place.

Izzy has discovered that she likes the flavor of adult toothpaste so she asks to brush her teeth all the time. She has brushed her teeth 4 times today.

while grogery shopping in the freezer section, Izzy was asking Zac for hugs every few minutes, 'cause she was cold.
Zac must have had an easy day with Izzy cause she looks like such an angel.

After grocery shopping on a full tummy, While Zac put away the groceries, Izzy snuck off with a carton of strawberries and downed 1/2 before Zac stopped her.

Izzy knows what a pendulum is. She hung a big safety pin with a ribbon on a light switch, swung it back and forth and called it a c[l]ock.

Izzy in her train, see the cattle guard? -Charla

Izzy told daddy to get in her train. For his seat, she set down a booster car seat. Her bike helmet is her conductor's hat. She wants the train to go fast, and we're trying to explain to her that it cant go and she has to pretend. Pretending is less fulfilling then reality. Perhaps she'll be a little engineer and make things go that shouldn't . She's so imaginative. -Charla

Izzy likes Zac to give her "hosey wides" and she instructs him to "go! fass!" here she is clapping her hands because he is going (though not fast) -Charla

Izzy making cookies. Zac says "stir" and Izzy responds with "taste!" - Charla

Izzy only takes a nap if Zac wraps her in a towel and cuddles her. When she gets tired she asks him for a "towel". Thats her signal that she needs to be burrito wrapped then cuddled. -Charla

Izzy was sitting on her potty, and I was sitting with her, waiting for something to happen. She sees a little water bug. I tell her it's ok, it's just a bug and I don't react. Izzy, on the other hand, gets off the potty, runs out of the bathroom, shuts the door, with me still inside, and runs, panicked, to daddy in the kitchen and exclaims "bug!" we may be on a potty hiatus. -Charla

When I piece quilt blocks, Izzy takes my blocks and will tell me they're nice, pretty and what shapes the pieces are, so encouraging. -Charla

Izzy what are you having for lunch today? a boiled egg, capers, and bleu cheese. Shouldnt you be refusing to eat anything thats not processed and doused in ketchup?....she did not get that memo on her 2 year birthday apparently. -Charla

Izzy can also recognize the primary colors and green, and can kind of count to 11, missing a few numbers in between. -Charla
I was "quizzing" Izzy on her letters and she shocked me- she recognizes and can name at least half the letter of the alphabet! - Charla

Went to Dr. today. Everything is good. I'm 33 weeks and 4 days, but measure 39 weeks. My tummy muscles are begging him to stop growing. -Charla
Today when I came home for lunch, Izzy greeted me with a blue stain around her right nostril... crayon residue to match her wall markings. - Charla

izzy just brought me back the pan of half eaten frozen peas insisting that i give her more. she requires them to be frozen, those thawed. -Charla
I even tried to pretend to put more peas in, and she felt them to see if they were frozen before rejecting them and insisting on frozen. - Charla
Izzy in dress for sunday

Izzy: "cookies!"
me: "how about peas?"
I proceed to put frozen peas in a pan to thaw them. Izzy takes the pan of frozen peas and says "thank you" as she takes them, in the pan, to eat them frozen and watch Word World -Charla

Izzy knows some of her alphabets: w, k and r. She calls them "world" after her favorite tv show word world, a reading show. -Charla
