Naomi is a nursery attending, 18 monther.

I now understand the Grinch that much better when his heart GREW and grew!  I thought our hearts were completely filled with love for Cache,  but our hearts swell even larger every day with the love of Naomi.

Fiesty, crazy, loving, and very very silly. 

These words would describe our girl to a T. 
Nicknames:  Nay, Nana, Nanners.  Occasionally Nemo.
Physical:  Around 26 lbs, on the short end.  Almost as wide as she is tall.  (One of my favorite things about you Nay.)

Talents: You can get up on top of anything despite you big old belly, Our little fleet foot, you run crazy fast.You love to run on the track at the YMCA. The biggest tunnels slides don't phase you, as you take them head first and giggle all the  way. You never ever EVER stop moving unless your buckled down.  No matter how big of tantrum you throw, you can give us the look and neither mom or dad can resist saying "aah it's okay Nay."  You've got all our hearts wrapped around your chubby little cheeks. 

Words: (listed in order of how often used.)
    1. ah Hungee- I'm hungry 
    2. duck-stuck 
    3. ginky -binky 
    4. dee dee-same word referring to  pink or green blanket, or silky 
    5. daddy 
    6. doggie 
    7. dory -story
    8. boo ball -football
    9. nana-banana or referring to yourself 
    10. shoe, 
    11. sock,  
    12. tee tee-thank you 
    13. Ky and LaLa- Sky and Kayala 
    14. mommy 
    15. pee- please 
    16. jee jee - jesus  
    17. monkey 
    18. boopy- poopy   
    19. she she -fishy 
    20. be be - baby or yourself
    You now copy most things we say, but these words make up the majority of our day and show what's  most important to you in this life so far.

    You live for:  Food, doggies and daddy coming home.

    Future predictions:  possibly a lefty,   Likes to follow directions and be given tasks especially if that task has anything to do with throwing something away in the garbage can! Maybe you'll be a garbage man?

    Favorite toys:  frying pans, a football, your baby doll and monkey but come to think of it you never really hold still enough to play, all you do is run circles around the house and throw stuff.

    Teeth: 11

    Favorite Foods:  Anything and everything it seems, most especially Oranges.  You'll even eat cardboard AND my grocery list if I don't watch you carefully.

    The only thing I've seen you spit out is lettuce. But not if its crunchy.

    Entourage:  Pink blanket, Green blanket,silky,love monkey,binky.
    You demand each and every piece before you will sleep. 

    Nay, you haven't quite grown into the meaning of you name "pleasant" but we wouldn't have you any other way. You are the craziest, feistiest, messiest little squelch-er.  But you are very soft hearted, LOVE to be hugged and love to please your mom and dad.  You are very mean to Cache but he  loves you so much and is so sweet back to you.  (Except for stealing your monkey)  Today, when you were crying in your crib and I couldn't come get you out, he fed you raisins and toast through the bars to make you happy and when you sat by him on the steps after I fixed your hair, I heard him tell you; "Nay you look sooo cute!"  I think you will learn to appreciate that one day.  Hopefully. 
    I could never have imagined you, and love every piece of you and your personality.  
    As Long as I get a nap.

    * Thanks Grandma Orton for the fun outfit.

    Had to include this pic of Cache, who after seeing me trying to take a picture of Nay's "Wrangler bum"  said  "Hey mom take a picture of my Indian Ana Jones Bum!" :)

    Peter loves the same monkey but calls it his "ee-ee" and has to have it with his "woof-woof" to sleep. I guess it's a little more girlie than boy-ee:) it's so true. love you-especially when mommy has a nap:)
