Blame It On The Dentist & The World's Strongest 3 Year Old

Hannah lost her fourth tooth tonight. So far all of the teeth that she's lost have been on the bottom and it's making her a little upset. After dinner tonight she says to me "I don't understand why I lost that tooth. The last time I was at the dentist he said that my top middle teeth were loose and that they would fall out soon but they are still there and I'm losing other teeth instead." I went on to explain to her that the dentist was only guessing that those would be the next to go but he didn't actually know which ones would be next. I then told her that she is losing her teeth in the order that they first came in when she was a baby so the next teeth that come out should be the top middle ones. She seemed to feel better after that. She loves whenever I tell her about herself as a baby.

It amazes me that I can remember in what order her teeth came in but I can't remember what I did yesterday! Sometimes I just don't know about myself!

Because Alexander is the smallest person in our family (or maybe it's because he's 3) he is obsessed with finding things that are his size. He get so excited when he finds "little like me" things as he likes to call them, that he has to tell everyone about his new discoveries. About a half hour before bedtime tonight, Bill and the kids were in our room (doing god know what) and all of a sudden I hear "Hey these are my size!" followed by Bill's laughter. I hear him running down the hall to show me and this is what I see:

He has found Alexander size weights and now he can "exercise!" Man I just love this kid. He's just too cute sometimes!

A Change of Scenery

Okay, so I'm not actually Irish and I'm not really into St. Patrick's Day but I thought that this background was cute and I've got Irish friends so I figured that it was okay to put this up! Well, that and I was getting tired of the Valentine's Day background and I'm not really ready for spring backgrounds either and I'm tired and don't feel like searching for another background that I like so this really was my only option!

I Sort of See It!

People tell me all the time that Hannah looks just like me. My response to this is to agree with that person and to indulge them as they go on and on about her being my clone and all that other good junk that I can't think of right now. But I have a confession to make - I've never really seen much of a resemblance between the two of us. I mean, sure we've both got dark brown hair and eyes and we've got just about the same skin tone but that's all I saw until I stumbled upon this picture.

Me at age 6 - and don't you DARE make fun of my hair. It was 1986 and I was in style damn it!

Hannah at age 6

I can actually (sort of) see where people say that she's my clone now! Her face is a little rounder then mine was, my eyes were a little more almond shaped then hers and of course she's got some of Bill in her, but I see it. Now I don't feel like such a weirdo anymore, well at least about this!!

Now if I can only convince Bill that Alexander really does look just like him as a kid because of course, he doesn't see that!
