Caroline started saying a new phrase this week..."No way, Mommy!!!" (or daddy, or insert whoever she might be talking to :-) I think it's funny now, but I'm sure it won't be cute for long. I tried to get her saying it on video today. It didn't work because the moment I turned on the camera, the little stinker quickly changed her tune...she's being pretty silly but you get the idea:

A birthday in our family wouldn't be complete without a yummy Casa Linda birthday cake...I could eat the whole thing...but I didn't :-)
Enjoying the singing
Caroline kept wanting bites of the "happy birthday cake" (as she called it). Of course, Mimi gave them to her...she's such a softie :-)

Just a random video of miss cutie pa-tootie (with a very brief almost-two-year-old tantrum mixed in):
I also had a funny conversation with Caroline today. It went something like this (while we were looking out the window watching the rain):
Caroline: "Look mommy, I see flamingo"
Me: "A flamingo???" (I looked in the direction she was looking and saw a squirrel) "Do you mean a squirrel?"
Caroline: "Yeah" (said in an exasperated that's-what-I-said kind of tone) "A sworl!!"
I have no idea why she thought to call the squirrel a flamingo. I'm sure she didn't know the name "squirrel" but you would think she would have called it a kitty or something like that. But no, flamingo is what popped into her head. Funny girl :-)

Caroline likes Abby but only on her terms. If Abby comes up to Caroline and wants to play, Caroline says "no puppy no puppy no puppy" over and over. When Caroline has had enough of Abby, she climbs up in PopPop's chair to "escape":

...but then she quickly realized there was a sucker in her hand and a show on the t.v. in front of her. Those frowns quickly turned into BIG smiles...whew!
