Love this girl...


Here's the latest from the mouth of Chloe...

(During a recent phone conversation with Grandma Jill)
Chloe: "We're not coming to your house. We're NOT!"
Grandma: "Why not?"
Chloe: "Because it's not Christmas!"

"Tomorrow when I am older, when I am an adult, I can have one of those white things!" (a vitamin C tablet)

(As she's practically smothering Ryan on the floor)
Valeri: "Chloe, don't lean on him!"
Chloe: "'Cause he'll pop?"

Neil: "Are you a smarty pants?"
Chloe: "No!! I'm a smarty dress!"

"Someday I'll be able to tell someone what to do!"

"Am I gonna be a grown-up in the morning?"

"Mommy, that's a lovely dress!"

"Hey Mom, you gotta go take care of the food!" (while I'm changing Ryan's diaper and dinner is on the stove)

Chloe: "Do you like little dogs?"
Valeri: "Yes, I do."
Chloe: "I like big dogs and cats, but not little dogs. Actually, I like little dogs, cats and horsies! Are horsies nice?"

"We got a lot of toilets!" (after discussing with daddy the number of bathrooms we now have with the finished basement)

As you may have gathered, one of Chloe's latest obsessions is being a grown-up/mom. She's constantly saying things like, "When I'm a grown up, I can do this.." or "When I'm a mom, you can't tell me what to do...", etc. Funny kid.


She is extremely protective of her brother. Some days even a glance in his direction will result in an earful from big sister. Watch out!

She loves Ryan to pieces and tries to help out as often as possible. I'll often hear her say things like, "You're such a sweet boy!" and "Ohhh, Buddy, you're okay!" to try and calm him. She mimics so much of what we say.

Chloe's personality has certainly proven to be bold. She is not afraid to put someone in their place or stand up for herself or someone else. While this presents plenty of challenges for me, I know in the long run this boldness will serve her well. Such a spitfire she is! Life just wouldn't be the same without her.
