Tasha Tells It All

Here are Tasha's latest ramblings...

Tasha: Who's in there? (pointing to my belly)
Me: Who is in there?
Tasha: Nikolaus, he's my baby brother!  Can I say hi to him?
Me: Yes.
Tasha: Hi Nikolaus.  I don't have a baby in my belly, just food.  There is hot dog, ketchup, milk, cereal...

Tasha: Where are my keys?
Me: I don't know.
Tasha: You want to ask me?
Me: Where are your keys, Natasha?
Tasha: I lost them (obviously)

In the morning before I get out of bed, Natasha turns on the radio and dresses me in my necklaces and bracelets:
Tasha: I need to turn the music on so we can dance.  Don't worry mommy, it will be fun!

In the car, listening to the radio, when Alex Clare's "Too Close" comes on:
Tasha: This is my song!  And it feels like I am just too close to love you...
She cracks me up! 

And some fun photos from this month:

Perfect Tasha size pumpkin.

Today we met some of our friends at the Irvine Regional Park Pumpkin Patch.  We had a great time walking around and seeing all the pumpkins.  They also have a lot of fun activities for kids of all ages.  The weather was great for this pregnant mama.  It's starting to feel more and more like fall.  Although the heat is supposed to return next week... blah!  Anyways, we will be returning to this pumpkin patch at the end of the month with our preschool class.  I see many more train rides in my future!

Tasha Tells It All

Here are some of Tasha's tales from last month:

Tasha: I want to get this party started!  (What can we say, she enjoys having people over for our tailgate parties)

Tasha: Red light!  Stop like a statue... got it! Okay!

Tasha: Oh man, we forgot my.... sunglasses!
                                                     DVDV player (and no that is not a typo)

Tasha: This is my buddy, dad.  And this is my friend, mommy.

Tasha: Where did we buy this?  You paid for it?  (Just for the record, I have never shop lifted in my life.  I guess she is just keeping me honest)

Tasha: (marching into our bedroom in a very serious tone) Do NOT put this book in my big girl room.  Let's keep it in the toy chest.

Me: Will you help mommy clean up your kitchen?
Tasha: Yes, because Kiki made a mess (already blaming it on someone else).

Tasha: I want to do my football picks (apparently you are never too young to do football picks in the Larson household.  And for those of you who want to know, she is not in last place... not winning either)

And here are some photos from this past weekend:
 Brooks likes our tailgate parties too!

   Everybody loves the bounce house

 Brooks was upset that CU lost to UCLA (Zac was happy though)
