Watermelon Girl

Tori is wearing an outfit with watermelons on it today. She is also wearing her pink sparkly shoes. She looks cute, and she knows it. Too bad her Care Bear doesn't look as great. She got that thing from Annie a long time ago, and she carries it everywhere. It is worn out and very dirty at the moment. I told her this morning that it is getting a bath soon. Poor Bear. We got her another one, but she likes her old pink one.

Dora House

Tori finally got her Dora house. Marie picked up one at a yard sale, and Tori as it out, along with all of her little people and their houses. The family room looks like a toy store. She was also happy to get more dress-up clothes. She is all set for play time.

Tori has taken to calling me Mommy. I don't know where she picked it up, but I am not Mommy. Christian still calls me Mom or Mama, and Eli just slobbers on me. Tori has been very cuddly lately, demanding that I pick her up and carry her everywhere. She also likes to play with my hair She is turning into my girl, while Eli is a daddy's boy. He prefers Huts to me, just like Tori did as a baby. Poor Huts. His left arm is about to break off.

Miss Mumbles

Tori has turned into a bit of a mumbler lately. She doesn't want to speak up or clearly. She's too busy doing 2 things at once to concentrate on what she's telling you. So after the 5th time of asking her what she said, you usually have to break her trance, look her in the face and ask "what are you saying?".

Last night we tested her speech ability by trying to pronounce certain words and as long as she was paying attention to what she was doing, she said it clearly enough to comprehend. Once distracted, Miss Mumbles returns. It doesn't help that she has such a quiet voice, until she has a hissy fit that is!

We'll see how it goes with her speech. She is probably just going through a phase like her brother is with certain letters.

Fit Thrower

Tori has become one. She throws a fit when things do not go the way she wants, like her dad being too busy to wrestler with her on Monday night. Boy, did she get into a tizzy and mope around the house. Silly girl! It only gets her in trouble; it never gets her what she wants.
