Auntie C's favorite Caro-isms

After turkey and mashed and green bean casserole left overs Kerri remembered NaBloPoMo and was quite exasperated, so I suggested a guest post - she was psyched. So here's a quick guest post from Auntie C ... nothing spectacular but here goes ...

Although I didn't get to spend Thanksgiving with the McFam ... (I was over celebrating the holiday with the Soups) ... I have been able to spend a lot of time with Caroline recently. Uncle Hokie and I babysat her a few weeks back and the football games this fall have been a plenty.

Here are a few of my favorite Caro-isms:
Her three favorite words are: Dora, Elmo, and Ariel. They are the most important people in her life and they are all she cares about. (Sorry everyone, you know it's true!) They are the answer to all that is evil and the best way to get a snuggle out of her.

"Dip?" -- Caroline will dip anything in anything and simply suck the "dip" off the chip, cracker, carrot annnd repeat. Dip dip dip ... she ate about a cup of ketchup when I cooked her chicken nuggets while only managing to eat one nugget. Gross.

Circle spinning has become a favorite past time of Caroline, we'll have to get a video of it, she twirls herself like a ice skating queen until she's laughing so hard that she has to stop. And as soon as she gets her balance back she goes at it again. Just laughing and laughing.

Last but not least -- the back rub -- yeah that sounds so weird a baby giving back rubs? It's not your normal back rub ... Caroline loves rubbing her little fingers against your skin in that lower back area just above your pants -- if your shirt is tucked in she will untuck it just so she can get there. She's been doing this since she was a little baby and I hope she keeps doing it. It's so relaxing for both her and whoever is the lucky receiver.

Those are my favorite Caro-isms ... hope you're jealous that she's not your niece.

Happy Turkey Leftover Day!!!
