So, I just stumbled upon these cute little sayings and incidences that I had quickly jotted down and tucked aside~ Vienne slept with her door open, so this was overheard one afternoon, at nap time. At first, I had thought she was shouting for me and so I started up the stairs until I realized she was talking in her sleep: "NO. NO. Don't go. Don't go anywhere. I can't see you, old lady! I can't see you old lady. I can't see yooouuuu..." (over and over) ~ Nov. 29, 2011
Looking at newborn Ivy, laying naked on the couch, Vienne made a silly pursed mouth and said "look at my baby sister...she's so...Naked!" ~ Mid January 2012
After taking a nap with me, in my bed, she woke me up and said that she was done sleeping. Then she sat up and said "I must pick you some flowers...but there aren't any outside anymore!" ~ January 2012
Vienne informed me that when she is grown up she will squeeze milk from her noonies for her baby too (you can guess, on your own, what "noonies" are...it is a term I grew up with...yes, you can laugh). She asked me when her noonies will grow big like mine and kept telling me that she wanted BIG circles on her noonies like mine.

Vienne had stripped her clothes down and was running to the bathroom but suddenly stopped and looked back at me, over her shoulder, and asked "is my po-po so cute?" (again, another funny term we use..."po-po" is what we grew up calling our bums. I believe it is German? Blame my mom!). And, by the way, yes of course her "po-po was sooooo so tiny and cute. ~ Summer 2012
Here is a video of Vienne at age 2 1/2ish (yes, lots of videos at this age). She is cleaning her puppy, Dooba. A wooden pull toy dog. Dooba was the first made up name she gave a toy. We loved Dooba. She loved Dooba so much and brought Dooba everywhere we went, that Dooba eventually did break. Poor Dooba.
I must note that I love watching her meticulous cleanly detailed mannerisms. Very much her Mother's daughter...how she meticulously cleans the entire dog and then runs to the garbage to throw the cleaning tissue away. That was my girl.
