Elmo's Song

So I wanted share another fun moment with Julia.

Julia has a new favorite song, its Elmo's Song. She wants to hear it ALL the time and now she has started to memorize different words throughout the song. In between Elmo's singing, Big Bird and Snuffy interject with little cute comments and well, those are what she is picking up!

#1- "I like it"
#2- "To think he wrote this alone"
#3- "Catchy"
#4- "Oh sing it"

Julia's versions are a little different:)

#1- "ike it"
#2- "alone"
#3- "catchy" She's has got that one spot on, with perfect timing!!
#4- "ing it"

I crack up everytime I hear her do it...lol....and that just makes her want to do it over and over again!
So last night I wanted my parents to hear her. I put the CD on and called them over. The song started but papa was taking awhile, Julia took off running.....thinking she's not going to do it, she's being shy and running away. To my suprise, no, she was running into my parents room yelling "Papa...Papa" trying to get him into her room. He came into the room and I started the song over and what do you know.....she was smiling and swaying back and forth to the music repeating the words she knew, proudly!! What a little ham!! I couldnt believe it. Soooo, I am going to cross my fingers and try to get her to do it on video, so i can share!

This little girl continues to amaze me everyday!

Another fun moment in my, Life with Julia Noelle...Nothing could be better:)

Julia's first haircut

So last Saturday I took Julia to get her very first haircut!! As most people know she has always had a lot of hair and its just gotten longer and longer. When it was wet, it was almost to the middle of her back! Mommy and grandma had done a few homemade bang cuts but she just wouldnt stay still and hated me holding her head still, so it always came out wrong. I finally decided it was time to let the professionals take a shot at it. Her hair also seemed to grow in layers, so it wasnt even across the bottom, so my goal was to have them straighten out her bangs and trim a little off the bottom.

I took her to a place called Cool Cuts for Kids, in Mira Loma. This place was amazing, Julia's eyes lit up when she walked through the door. Train sets, legos, movies, and books what more could a kids ask for, oh yeah snacks and lollipops!! She had a blast playing with the trains and legos while we waited. When it was her turn, she got to choose between a fire engine or a taxi cab to sit in, she chose the fire engine:) While they cut her hair she got to watch her Old Mcdonald Baby Einstein, her favorite movie right now, ring the fire engine bell and eat her snacks, spoiled girl! She did such a good job, the only time she got a little upset was when I had to hold her head still for the girl to cut her bangs. Her haircut came out so cute, they did such a great job with her. She also got a first haircut certificate with a little lock of her hair for mommy to keep:) She looks like such a big girl now with her big girl haircut, enjoy the pics.....

Mockingbird and other fun things!

So my little girl is definitely in the mockingbird stage. She loves to copy what we say. My mom was out with her at the store last week and they saw some kids with balloons, well Julia LOVES balloons and she started yelling moon...moon...yes her word for balloon is moon...lol:) Well my mom raised her hands up and said "Honey, I dont know where they got them, I dont know." Julia immediately raised up her hands and with her cute little voice said "I dont know"...she now will randomly do that around the house, i love it! If I say "Im coming Julia" she will repeat to me, "coming...mama..coming?" Now when we place chase, she will chase me and say "I coming...I coming" LOL....cracks me up everytime! So these next few are much more funny if you could hear her say it, Im trying to get it on video, but she tends to stop and want to smile and be silly when Im trying to video her, so will see how that goes. Anyway, Julia totally loves her music, she cant be in her room without it on, mommy's fault I guess for allowing it, but its usually always bible songs, so I figure...what the heck! So she has a few favorite songs and she repeat certain parts of this songs. She likes the B-I-B-L-E and when its on she just repeats B-I, B-I, B-I over and over again...lol. She also likes a song called Who built the Ark? and the song says "Who built the ark?....Noah Noah. When that part comes up its...Noah, Noah, Noah....repeated very fast! There is another song that goes, God looked down and saw bad guys uh huh, uh huh. Julia repeats after the kids...uh huh, uh huh:) And last but not least, Im sure everyone knows the song " He's got the whole world in his hands" On the part that says, "he's got the little bity babies, in his hands", she screams...."HI, BABY"...LOL!

Julia loves her baby einstein movies, she has been watching them since 6 months old and has loved them ever since. To this day she will not watch anything all the way through, except these baby einsteins, which is totally ok with me. She will watch a few minutes of elmo or word world, but she gets bored pretty quickly. She is now on the 12 months and up videos and they say different words and then flash the word on the screen for them to see. Julia loves to try to repeat what they say and i try to do this with her so she can hear mommy say it too. I never realized how difficult it can be for them to repeat a word correctly, but I love that she continues to try everytime and has even mastered a few of them:)

One fun thing is she has a little outdoor car that I push her on when we go for walks(thanks cousin Jayda), she LOVES this thing, she calls it her "choo choo". Everytime we go outside through the garage, she runs straight for it yelling, choo choo. Well, as cute as this is, it suddenly turns into a very stressful event. When we are done with her walk, she screams murder and throws a huge tantrum. Im trying to teach her when we are all done to wave and say bye-bye choo....so far all she does is kick and scream say...NO...NO!! Oh the joys of motherhood:)

Another fun thing that I love is that Julia LOVES to pray and she prays all the time;) When we sit down to eat, she puts her hands together, says pray...pray and puts her head down. Sometimes we pray for our dinner 3 or 4 times! She has a baby bible and its has little prayers after every story, we pray when get up for the day and we pray when I put her to bed at night. I am raising a little prayer warrior, lol!! A couple of times recently she has prayed herself, she mumbles a little something and says Amen:) I love it!!!

So, those are just a few fun things that my little smarty pants is doing now!

So, i hope everyone had a wonderful Easter. We had a great Easter.....egg hunts, church, and lots of family and food!!

Saturday morning I let her open up her basket from me because we were taking her to the park for an egg hunt, we went to our local parks festivites and missed the egg hunt by 10 min!! But, they were still nice enough to give her some eggs:) Later in the afternoon we dyed some eggs and I let Julia decorate her eggs, she had a blast and gave me a nice fit when I said we were all done....lol. She is so stinkin stubborn, it kilss me sometimes!

Sunday we woke up and she opened her basket from Grandma and Papa....I've never heard so many...OH WOW's from her...lol....

We went to church to celebrate the real reason for Easter. Thank you Jesus for dying on the cross and rising again for our sins!!! It was an amazing service:)

After church we went to my aunties house and had a fun filled day with lots of food and laughs! I love getting together with family and watching my little girl play with her cousins:) All in all it was a great holiday!!! Enjoy the pics!
