Baby Girl-isms

As my sweet, stubborn, spunky, strong-willed baby girl comes into her own, her personality is really starting to shine through.

Still stubborn, still "her way or the high-way"...but now, well she's adding silly into the mix. And sensitive. (What?! SENSITIVE?!) She, who once drove a 30 minute stand-off (at the ripe old age of 2) because she wouldn't say "I'm sorry", is now my child to offer up the speediest, most sincere apologies.

And that silliness. Her sense of humor is similar to Hambone's in that I'm not sure she INTENTIONALLY tried to be funny, but she is (and she doesn't always appreciate our laughter!)!

In fact, just the other day, I was lamenting on how I hadn't had bacon in FOREVER. It was like I was dying. I WANT BACON!!! And my girl?

Here's what she had to say, deadpan, about the whole situation:

"Bacon is my worst nightmare."

Oh sweet mercy did we laugh!!!

And then I demanded a "maternity" ;) test because NO WAY could I have given birth to child that didn't love bacon, must less declared it to be her worst nightmare!!!

How appropriate, "halo braid", no?! ;) Finally, I have this ready for you...I apologize for the delay!
This braid looks intricate, but is really quite easy and quick to pull off...the original video (prior to the warp speed the video to see what I mean) was just a bit over 8 minutes long...not too shabby!

You must stop whatevertheheck it is that you are doing, and make this recipe. Right now.

Oh, hold it...wait just a sec (again)...actually, I got this recipe from Melissa...yes, the Melissa of this story!
And this story...which, the same story, just told two different ways! ;)
So, you can thank her...I guess.
Well, in any event...prepare your tastebuds to be tantalized!

And, this:

You'll also need chicken breasts or steak, but since photographing your "main ingredient" is, like, soooo passe, I've left it out. (Ahem...)

And...try your best to not slice up the little fingers that are sneaking away pepper strips...
