All About Jillian

My little Jillian is quite the funny gal these days. She says some of the funniest things and I have been writing them down for a while so that I could compile a post showing just how funny my girl really is! And by the way...in case you were wondering...the potty training is going AMAZING!!!! I mean, I can't believe it...it has just clicked with her. We still have the random accident, but for the most part Jillian has got it nailed, I believe! (for the record...we still are in diapers at naps and nighttime)

Ok...so on to my list...

1. Paper Doll Towels
  • Jillian got two different "paper doll" sets for Christmas and so I guess she just has paper dolls on the mind. She told me the other day..."Mommy, you need new paper doll towels!" (Of course she was noticing our empty roll of paper towels!)

2. Rainbow Coat
  • Jillian's grandma CC got her a new raincoat. When she wants to put it on, she tells me..."Mom, I want to wear my new rainbow coat!"

3. Strawbabies and Ranch
  • Jillian has become a big fan of Ranch as a dip for veggies and chicken. So, I guess it is normal that she confuses the redi-whip spray cream that we use as a dip for our fruit for Ranch! Also, we have always called strawberries...strawbabies. So in the morning Jillian asks for some "strawbabies and ranch."

4. Sun Eye-Glass
  • Jillian used to just call her sunglasses...eyeglass. Well, she is finally adding the sun part to that. So, she will tell me..."Mom, the sun is in my eyes, I need my sun eye-glass!"

5. Built-In Boop Bops
  • Jillian calls flip flops...boop bops. So, when she started wearing footy pajamas this winter, somehow she though the footies were boop bops. Then she came up with the whole phrase of built in boop bops...which means her footy pajamas!

6. Wiggles
  • This one may look familiar...but don't be fooled! Jillian has recently picked up a liking for Bugles. (like the chip!) But, she always calls them Wiggles.

not to be confused with...

7. Piggy Tail Ride
  • You can tell that getting our hair did around here is pretty high on the priority list! Piggy tails was probably one of Jillian's first words or phrases!!! Well, now when she wants a piggy back ride, she asks for a piggy tail ride.

8. Summer Spears or Kourtney Spears
  • Jillian has always liked the beats from my girl Britney Spears' songs! I know, I know...it is embarrassing that she can recognize them, but I have admitted that I have always been a Britney Spears fan! What can I say...I am rooting for the poor girl! Well, now Jillian knows Britney's name...sort of. (I know moms out there...this is my first clue that she is TOO old to be listening to that type of music now!) Anyway, whenever I tell her that it is Britney Spears...she will tell me..."No, Summer Spears" or "Kourtney Spears". I guess her favorite musician having the same name as her mommy really bothers her!

And yes...in case you are wondering, I did go to the "Oops I Did It Again" concert in 2000! And yes, I was 20! And yes, I went with my friend Elizabeth and Martha Lynn...and we had SOOOOO much fun!

9. New Batteries
  • Jillian thinks EVERYTHING needs new batteries! If anything seems to not be working or making noise, she will tell me that it needs new batteries. She even knows where we keep them and the screwdriver!!!!!!

And now I will leave you with a couple pictures of my girl...

All last week, poor J had this terrible chapped face! I kept scrubbing it thinking it looked dirty...but I guess it was just from the cold and her runny nose. Luckily, she is all cleared up now.

Here is a picture I just happened to get...but it shows off Jillian's best feature...her VERY long eyelashes! These babies are really long!

Okay...in conclusion of today's post, I will leave you with something that totally has me baffled!!!! Seth's granny bough Jillian a bunch of Barbies (NONE of them had any clothes!!!) in a bag at a garage sale, and CC gave us a few of them when we were up for Thanksgiving. Well this girl caught my eye at first because of her REALLY chunky highlights! I started thinking...they sure don't make them like they used to! What happened to Astronaut Barbie or Veterinarian Barbie???

Barbie and her bad hair color. Sorry for the bleached out face...but I was trying to get a close up of that hair! It is red/orange with bright yellow highlights!

This picture is a little better.
Well, when I happened to turn the Barbie over...this is what I found!
This chick has TWO tattoos on her back! A design up at the top and a panther on her lower back! WHAT IN THE WORLD???????????????? Now, I know that a lot of us girls have nice and classy tattoos on our lower back...like a flower, right Mom????? :) But a panther...on a Barbie?????
So what do you think they call her...
Ho*ker Barbie?
Stri*per Barbie?
Drug Dealer Barbie?
Anyway, that is all for today!

SDG said...

That Barbie is too funny! Where in the world did she come from I wonder? I say she is tramp stamp Barbie! ;) But I wouldn't know anything about those.....

Elizabeth said...

Cute Jillian stories!I just had a chill imagining dipping strawberries in ranch. Glad she doesn't really eat that. And... I do remember that concert. That was so fun!! However, I didn't remember you buying a t-shirt!

Kimberly said...

Okay I am doubled over dying laughing at that barbie!!!
Tell Jillian to not let her other barbies hang out with that chick!
Jillian cracks me up!!!

Marcy said...

1) ONE of Jillian's many best qualities are her amazing eyelashes.
2)The only good tatoo is one that says....I LOVE MOM.
3)Was this (Britney Spears Concert) the night we worried ourselves sick you would get back to Harding in time for class the next day?
4) I have an old (leftover Barbie) from my own 3 girls. Her severe bleached blonde hair is cut extremely short, has bald spots, and Summer named her CHEMO BARBIE!!!
PS God bless anyone reading this doing chemo treatments.I have great sympathy/admiration for anyone doing chemo as my own mother did it. One way we dealt with it was through laughter and I hope you find that with this blog!

Carolyn said...

Well who in the world would get a tramp stamp??

Nice highlight 'TPT Barbie'


Allison said...

GA also thinks everything needs batteries...I love that post about Jillian. She is adorable, and seriously that barbie...there are no words.

Mindy said...

What a trashy little barbie huh!? So funny, but I am sure Jilly likes it because of the lower back tatoo she has. hahaha.
-In regards to the Brittney Spears comments-I love that Jillian is wearing your old shirt. I totally recognized that shirt as soon as I saw the pic. Too funny.

That Barbie is still cracking me up! :)

Your girls are so cute. I love having a girl. I saw the britney Spears t-shirt. Brought back many memories. Still have mine in my drawer. Not sure if it still fits, but will have to try.
