WOW, I really can't believe its been 200 posts! When I think about it, I'm so glad I started this blog and that I keep it going. I know I will look back an be so grateful to have an account of the Perry Happenings. Life can get so darn busy, that if I didn't have this blog and updated it regularly, I would miss out on some of our fun and great moments that we do as a family or just the everyday cute things that my kids do. They have grown up so much just in the past year, I'm glad I have pictures and journal notes to go along with our life!
Some of the funny things that Bryanna has been saying lately, that I have been wanting to write down, because I know I will forget them are:
**Riding home from Disneyland last week Bryanna busts out, "When I grow up, I'm going to be like my mom and do lots of dishes!!" I want to know how does Bryanna view me? Apparently, all I'm good for is keeping up on the dishes!
**Just the other day, Bryanna was sitting on Mark's lap and tapped his chest, she exclaimed, "Daddy, you have strong boobies!" We died laughly at that instant!
**Some funny words she has been incorperating into her sentences: Possibly, Actually, Totally, Awesome, Cool, [that's so] Crazy! I really wonder how much I say these words? Possibly a little too much!
**Bryanna is my clone, whether I like it or not. If I want to look in the mirror, all I have to do is look down at Bryanna and I see myself very clearly (although she is more perfect, more innocent, and smarter!) She likes to give me orders, and so that's where I need a little improvement for sure. Soften the orders I could definitely and should do. She is my helper in the kitchen...she likes to bake just as much as I do...or maybe its getting to lick the cake batter or scrape off the cookie dough from the bowl? Regardless of how much we are alike, I love her and I am very happy that she is like me and does want to be like me. That's not so bad, I really am flattered! I mean, its not a coincidence I get to raise my own biggest fans. I just know Bryanna and I were best friends in the life before.
**Maddox has the sweetest little voice. I LOVE to hear him talk and repeat words. His soft cheeks are my absolute favorite thing in the world, and I love even more that he doesn't mind so much that I kiss them about 20 times a day! He is my snuggle bug, my bug-a-boo, and my squeezable, tickly little baby boy! He's constantly playing with his tennis raquet (and when I protest he cries a very sad and disappointed sob, tears and all!) He loves to play with whatever Bryanna is playing with. He sees her attachment to her blanket, and naturally he has the same attachment to his. They go upstairs together, grab their blankies, drag them down the stairs, all through the house and occasionally I catch them in the backyard on the trampoline rolling around in them!
So here's to 200 posts!
