Oh N,
It has been a year and a half since I have posted to the sillies blog. I need to do better! But I had to write this gem before it gets lost in the chaos of life. Today, when getting into the car from school, you held up a tooth necklace and proudly proclaimed, "I lost my first tooth!". You were jubilant. I was shocked! I had no clue that you even had a wiggly tooth, let alone one so close to coming out. When we later shared the news with Dad, he wanted a closer look. Yet, there wasn't anything to see... No hole. No adult tooth peeking through. No evidence that would point at a lost tooth. So we counted. You still had every pearly white baby tooth in your mouth. When I open the tooth necklace and inspected the tooth, I discovered that it was, if fact, a rock. A rock that eerily resembled a tooth. It was at this point that you broke down sobbing, telling us that you "just wanted to lose a tooth already like everybody else". N, you initially convinced not only Mom and Dad, but teachers as well. You are too sneaky.
Love one who HAS her baby lost teeth,
Mom

Hey N,
In the car today, you made me laugh so hard that I snorted. While playing Pokemon Go, you caught a pokemon on the first try and triumphantly exclaimed, "I am FREAKING AWESOME!!!". You are freaking awesome. And freaking hilarious...
Love,
Mom

My silly B,
You like to pretend that you are a horse. And you neigh nonstop at the most inconvenient times. Like church. A couple of weeks ago, you neighed throughout the entire duration of sacrament meeting. LOUDLY, too. Oh, B. You're a weirdo.
Love,
Mom

Miss O,
You do well with saying your siblings' names. You don't even use nicknames. But you struggle with Cuca. Whom you try to call Cuca. The only problem is that you don't know how to make the hard C sound. You've learned to adapt, though, and instead say his name with two tongue clicks. They even include "oo" and "ah" at the end of each click. It's hilarious. 
Love,
Mom

My sweet, littlest O,
Eating with you is always an adventure. You're one of our best eaters, but that doesn't mean you're the most conventional. For instance, you're a nibbler. You eat at a decent pace until you're near finished. At that point, you start taking the teeniest, tiniest bites. Microscopic morsels. When you're  not delicately nibbling, you're stuffing your face. And, by this, I don't mean that you're eating a ton... No. You're literally stuffing your face into the food on your plate to eat like a puppy. No hands. While standing. You bend forward while on your feet, place your face in your food, and take a bite. Of course, the other littles think that this is hilarious. And I'll admit, I find it a bit entertaining, too. Tonight, after dinner was over, you topped off your dining spectacle by licking your sippy cup clean of food remnants. Oh, little O.
Love,
Mom
