*I thought I had hit publish on this post (that I wrote in the middle of May), but apparently didn't!*

I need to catch these on camera because they are just too cute for words!

Sloan is talking a lot now, but not all of it make sense! She used to fall asleep in the car a lot, basically on any car ride longer than 20 minutes or so....now she just talks the entire way!

Some of my favorite Sloanisms:
-if she doesn't want to try something she holds it up and tells us it's "too picey" (spicy) all while doing her adorable little shoulder shrug as if to say it's not her fault she can't eat it!
-despite never watching Sesame Street, she still loves Cookie Monster...and calls him "tutie mon-ter"
-she loves to pretend talk on the phone, usually it's with Papa or someone that she is calling to wish a "hoppy birt-day" to
-when I am leaving for work and Matt is home, she likes to be sure to tell me "Mummy wert, stay here Daddy" just so I know where she will be
-everyday when I get home from work we have a big hug and I tell her "Mummy missed you!" and she will look me in the eye and say 'mummy, miss youuuu' - it warms my heart (at breaks it slightly too)
-Sloan loves to play with her babies (the millions of them that Daddy has caved and bought her!), but it's more than just playing, she has a very strong motherly instinct I think
-we have a little miss independent! Sloan likes to do things on her own, and when I try to help...I get "byes-elf Mummy, byes-elf" It might take us double the time to get ready, but she is so proud when she is able to do it all by herself...whatever it is!
-she found an ant outside last night and tried to bring it to me...between her two fingers...when she noticed it wasn't moving anymore she 'aawww doesn't wert' - I had to explain to her why it wasn't 'working' anymore!
