Little Miss goes through phases with her favorite stuffed animal, but when it all comes down it, Minnie always comes back. I also think it's because the Disney Channel has been advertising a new Minnie movie soon. (Sidenote: I have to remember to record it if it airs on tv or maybe an Easter present if it's a DVD release.) She likes her stuffed friends on her bed, the more the merrier, and she'll hug them, but she doesn't necessarily cuddle when she sleeps. So, it was just adorable when I walked in last night and saw her hugging Minnie in her sleep. I just had to take a picture. I know she's going to love meeting Minnie in person this summer at Disney World. Plus, what's really adorable is that Minnie was a gift from Aunt, Uncle and Cousins before Little Miss was born so she and Minnie go way back.

Little Miss sang Where is Thumbkin all weekend. At various times, she'd say "Where is pumpkin" which is the cutest, but now she kind of says Thumbkin. The "TH" sound is still tricky for her. Anyway, without further ado, here is Little Miss singing:

On Sunday, we took the kids skiing. Little Miss informed us she wanted to go all the way to the top of the mountain. So, we took her to the top of the bunny hill. She rode the Magic Carpet lift all the way up and her aunt helped her ski all the way down three times. After the third time, Little Miss was more than ready to go home, but it's still fun for her. She actually wants to snowboard, but we told her she needs to ski first.
We mostly watched a movie on Sunday night and then took the big drive home on Monday. You can see Little Miss and Sister (and Nephew right in front) skiing in the video below:

The infinity symbol refers to my ride home last night which, yes, does seem like eternity sometimes, but that is not why I chose the symbol. I discovered that Little Miss also knows how to go into my song library, play songs and also put my music on loop. I don't know what's worse - the fact that Little Miss can manipulate my iPod that well or the fact that it took me 20 minutes to realize that the same song was playing on loop during my drive home.

Also, last night, Little Miss ran into a pitch black room. After not being a big fan of the dark, she just ran into the room. It was a proud moment. She told me she wasn't afraid because there were no monsters. Such a big, fearless girl.

I did not read a lot this month, been too scattered. Plus, the month was busy. It started with Husband in the hospital and then Little Miss had the stomach bug, and things were just busy. This month, I read a book on my Kindle app on my iPod. So, when necessary, I will link to the version of the book I read.
For Call Me Irresistible, it is indirectly part of a series, but it's not necessary to read the previous books so I did not list them. I'm a stickler for order so if I say you can read a book on its own, you can. It was a fun read. Hopefully, more reading during February, but I'm definitely off to a slow start (despite it being the first day of the month).
Little Miss loves books. She has her favorites - The Little Engine that Could, The Snowy Day, Pancake Pancake, The Very Quiet Cricket, The Very Hungry Caterpillar. Lately, she's been "reading" by herself. With some books, she knows portions by heart so she'll "read" the book from memory. However, with some books, she is not familiar with the text so she'll make up the story based on the pictures. Last night, we were lucky enough to snag it on video. I'm not even sure what book it was, but I think it's a Poky Little Puppy pop-up book about Christmas based on the fact she mentions Santa and cookies and milk (and the beautiful puppy). Enjoy!
