Iris Lately

Posted by The Wizzle | Posted on Monday, July 11, 2011 at 8:43 PM


Iris is 34 months old.

Her favorite color is pink.

If you ask her where her nose is, instead of pointing, she now says gleefully "I not telling you!"

She still sucks her thumb, but only when she's tired (or sad, or shy, or scared).

She changes her clothes FIVE THOUSAND times per day. Usually into a leotard. For her "dance recital".

She loves to eat. And she eats everything! The only food she has ever outright refused is a hard-boiled egg, and she has since come around to even those.

I don't know exactly how tall she is, but she's tall enough now that she almost never pees over the front of the toilet. Upgrade.

She calls it "Harry Potter an' de Gobble Fire".

She hates to be left out of any activity, or to be perceived as a baby, and is quick to chime in that "I go to kinnergarden too when I'n FWEE!"

She can buckle herself into her carseat, but cannot unbuckle herself. Perfect.

She knocks down everyone's towers, smashes their Lego creations, and scatters their marbles. But everyone adores her anyway.

She loves to dance, and can shake it like no little white girl should be able to. Recent dance venues include: her carseat, sacrament meeting, and the bathroom stall.


Just grows out of her head. Just like that! Can you believe it?

She is a very capable, confident girl, but no matter how much fun she's having, she still runs over to "check in" and bury her face in my knees every 5 minutes or so.

She can swim.

When the family exchange hugs and kisses at bedtime, everyone wants to hug Iris first.

Oh my dear. I just LOVE that girl. And I actually love all of you in that house. Can we come to play sometime?

I just want to squeeze her. And her hair? So loving it.

It's amazing how much you can find to love about a child when he/she is sleeping... ;)

I adore that girl. Can't get enough.

This is the sweetest post. Iris is undisputedly, undeniably lovable. What a wonderful little girl. :)
