Trying to climb the castle ruins about 30minutes from our house on New Year’s Day.
From my sister: As I close the door to get ready to shower my niece yells through it, “Let me know if you need anything, ok, Auntie? Ok?” Lol she’s so sweet…
-Big Ive 05.11.2013
Kane-kuh so much!
-Little E 05.11.2013 (Thank you so much!)
Auntie, can you be nice to me?
-Big Ive 14.11.2013

-Big Ive 15.11.2013
-Little E 15.11.2013 (Piggy tail.)
I am a Mom.
-Big Ive 17.11.2013 (Probably said after I told her to stop mothering her sister as I was the mommy and she is the sister.)
Me, to the girls: say night night baby cousin!
My little brother, speaking for his infant daughter: night night toddler cousins!
Big Ive: We not cousins. I Big Ive and she Little E.
Me: What did a Big Ive say?
Big Ive: No. I said, what-da what-da hey!
Can you put that down? So you don’t fall?
–Big Ive 17.11.2013, in reference to my armrest in the car
Lindberger cheese became hamburger cheese and muenster cheese became monster cheese in the car on the night of November 17, 2013.
On this same car trip Big Ive was very intent on finding the cars while we drove on the freeway.

Silly little girls sitting on a wall of the castle ruins. Big Ive climbed up by herself and Little E desperately tried to follow, but couldn’t do it herself. LOML lifted her up and placed her a little away from Big Ive. That’s when they decided they had to be right. next. to. one another.
You love Big Ive? You love Little E? You love momma? You love Kleenex? You love soap? You love Little E?
-Little E 12.12.2013, Said as we were taking her up to bed I told her to say I love you, dad, and we had a whole conversation about who and what dad loves.
Little E: What’sth dat?
Me: My necklace.
Little E: I wear it?
Let’s get out of the cool afore we get our jammies wet.
-Big Ive 13.12.2013
(Lets get out of the [pretend] pool before we get our jammies wet.)
This afternoon, after we had gotten back from a day trip to Metz, France, Big Ive saw that LOML had just finished his beer. So, she does what any good 3.5 year old daughter does, she went to get him another beer. The best part is that she noticed his preferred brand of beer was not in the refrigerator, so she took it upon herself to get 3 beers from the case in the pantry and put them in the fridge. Unfortunately, she dropped one and it broke, getting beer and glass shards all over the pantry floor. But, it’s the sweet thought of a loving daughter that counts most.
I’m finding out I’m a kid!
–Big Ive 26.12.2013
Patty cake, make der Mann.
–Big Ive 26.12.2013 (I love how they combine the 2 languages.)
The pans are made out of mirrors!
-Big Ive 26.12.2013 (The pots and pans are shiny and look like mirrors.)
I have 4,000 teeth.
–Big Ive 26.12.2013
-Little E 28.12.2013

-Big Ive 28.12.2013
I appreciate it Mom’s cooking.

Big Ive: Is our cooking done? Oder nicht? (Or not?)
LOML: Nicht. (Not.)
Big Ive: Daddy ‘sagt, ‘nicht’. (Daddy said no.)
Having fun at the castle ruins. Big Ive thinks she’s so big now because she can climb up on small wall ruins by herself.
