Profile 2010: Caroline

I thought it would be fun to start the new year with a little snippet of each member of our family.  I hope to print our blog in a book--make that several books--and thought this would be a valuable addition. 

First in the spotlight:  Caroline Rose

I interviewed the bigger kids, but since Caroline's reply to most questions is either "No," "Wa Wa," or "Pom Pom," I filled in the blanks for her.

Age:  19 months

Is really good at:  climbing, giving hugs, smiling, going to bed, and

walking around in shoes that are way too big for her

Wishes she was better at:  fastening buckles and putting on her coat [gets very frustrated with these tasks, but is in that do-it-myself phase]

Favorite treat:  ice cream

Favorite game:  Ring-around-the-rosie

Something she's scared of:  the vacuum cleaner

If she could eat only one food it would be:  cheese or popcorn

She even tries to eat shredded cheese with a fork

If she could change one rule in our house it would be:  that she's not allowed to climb on the top bunk bed

My take on her:  Care Bear is so much fun.  She is happy from the moment I take her out of the crib in the mornings.  She is an early bird.  Usually up between 6:30 and 6:45.  Spends quality time with books--especially lift-the-flap ones.  Likes baby dolls.  Enjoys trying to dress and undress them, pretends she is feeding them.  Is a milkaholic and would drink it nonstop if we'd let her.  Loves watching Elmo and Baby Einstein.  Is over her separation anxiety so enjoys going to friends' homes.  Takes a 2-2 1/2 hour nap in the afternoon.  Is obsessed with silverware and is learning to use her fork and spoon.  She even helped set the table last night.

She makes all of us smile and laugh.

She's my kind of girl --afternoon naps.

She is such a sweet girl. I love that she says no all the time and it cracks me up that you think getting up at 6:30 is early. You need to come over to our house!
