Josie just turned two and she has all of the talk-to-the-hand attitude that accompanies this milestone. After all, what's two without a little rebellion? Sass? Defiance? Josie is knee deep in the "terrible twos"and she's proud of it! She's even figured out a way to declare her age and all that it embodies in one simple expression.
Introducing "The Face":
My former perpetually smiling, constantly content, happy little bundle of joy is establishing her autonomy. When I point the camera at her and exclaim "Smile!" I get "The Face." Anyone who has been in her presence within the last two weeks has gotten "The Face". Mama Hop, the sales girls at the department store, and even her wonderful physical therapist, Bea:
You wanna rumble?!
I didn't think so.
We're only two weeks into this two-year-old status and I'm already waving the white flag. Pray for me!!!
This B&W photo is the CUTEST EVER!!!!!!!!!ReplyDelete
we are knee deep too. at least you get "the face". i don't get squat.ReplyDelete
Oh no!! Fasten your seatbelts... !!ReplyDelete
Hey Little Mama - all you have to do now is teach her how to hold up her pointer and pinky fingers while she's making the face!!ReplyDelete
Love the black and white pic!
I LOVE the face!!!!! So cute, such attitude. :) Adorable.ReplyDelete
I love it!!! We got the "eyes" from Claire!ReplyDelete
Love that last photo, priceless~ReplyDelete
What an adorable face...sass and all :)ReplyDelete
Sass sure is cute. From here maybe. We're less than a year from the twos and it seems so far away. But she's already sneaking in the sass over here too!ReplyDelete
I love "the face". LOL. I'll take that over my 3 yr old's latest game. It's called, "hit mama". They way you play is to wait until your mom is in a defenseless position...(for example, while she's carrying a large basket of laundry) then you shout "hit mama" & slap the woman who gave birth to you while you laugh hysterically. At least that's the way my son "plays" it. Ah the toddler years, Good times..:)ReplyDelete
Love it, love HER!!!ReplyDelete
I don't wanna be the one to have to tell you this, but here goes. 2 years old is only the introduction to 3. I'm sorry. As soon as you think you've got a handle on the terrible 2's, she'll turn 3 and then it's game on. LOLReplyDelete
But that face is awfully cute :)
Will that face still be cute when she gets older and looks at you like Leanne is looking at Mama Hop in the previous post???? Those expressions slighhhhhhhtly resemble each other....LOL....she is adorable!!!!!!ReplyDelete
