busy busy

I have been pretty busy lately, with these two. 

 Aaaand these two. 

Please try to ignore the humongous mess that was previously my kitchen table. It doubles as my sewing room, I would like to say sometimes but lets be honest....its like that all the time. 
I started babysitting my friends two little boys and its been great! For the most part they all get along, and its so fun for them to have friends to play with. Its sure busy tho....and messy! Our basement is SOOOO close to being done and it can NOT get done fast enough. 4 kids in my tiny living room sometimes makes me go insane.  I am crossing my fingers it will be done before Christmas. cross your fingers for me! thanks you're the best. 

 We have been doing some crafts. trying to keep the kids entertained in this cold/ridiculously windy weather. we dyed some macaroni and made bracelets the kids loved it!

I really don't know who said these two could get so big. its killing me!!! 

 And this little chickie has more hair than her big sister....what gives?? poor chloe, everyone keeps telling me her hair will come in....but WHEN??? probably when she is 10 and wont let me do it anymore. figures. 

I was meaning to do an 18month post for Smash. but I have been REALLY busy sewing pretty much constantly for Christmas. there is something like 34 days until Christmas. WHAT? can you believe it?? 
 So maybe i will say a few things about my favorite 18 month old?

-Firstly she was 18m almost a month ago and started going to nursery! best. day. ever. She did really good actually. especially cause she has been suuuuper clingy lately.
-She is busy busy. I can't get her to sit still for anything. and she is into EVERYTHING! chloe never got into stuff like this little monster. If i open the pantry door she is RIGHT there pulling stuff off the shelves. If i get up from my sewing machine... BAM she is there climbing up and pulling out all my bobbins. she is quick i tell you. and won't take no for an answer.
-She is obsessed with the bathroom. and everything in it. mainly the toilet of course, but she doesn't shy away from the garbage, under the sink and anything and everything else she can reach.
-she talks. she started making words that you can understand...makes me kind of sad really. she is too big :(  she says "KITTY" (always as if its the first one she has ever seen) "puppeee," mommy, dada, nana, papa, "gama"(grandma) "toee" (chloe) "Dowah" (dora) "tina"  "nigh nigh" (when she is ready for bed, which she loves!) "some?" "sna?" (snack) or "mo?"(more) when she wants a snack. "tub tub?" (after she is done eating and needs a bath" and her newest and my personal favorite is "BYE" her little voice is just too adorable!
-She loves to eat and eats almost everything! she will clear her ENTIRE plate almost every night and then politely places her fork on the plate and holds it up until one of us takes it from her. I have no idea where she got that from.
-She is clumsy. like really clumsy. her nickname "smash" is really fitting. I am beginning to wonder if it was her lack of crawling making her off balance or something. she is always covered in bruises. I feel so bad but she hardly ever cries about it. she's tough....she has to be with Chloe for a big sister!
-She just started to really love to play on the ipad and can navigate through a few games by herself. her favorite game is "peekaboo barn" It is adorable if you have a baby and an ipad, get it.
-She LOVES books. I don't even bother to put the books away until they are all in bed. she will look at books for hours. love it!
-Her last eye tooth finally came through, and is much happier! she has some seriously big chompers!

Love you smashy boo.

Oh Smash!!!!!!! You forgot to say that she knows how to say Tina REALLY good. I think what she's trying to say is that she wants to come visit again.
