Surprise! Girls Don't Use Inside Voices Either

I thought the boys were loud. Even when they whisper.

Ivy has got something to say, like, all the time now. And to all those people that said ohhh you're having a girl? Just wait for the drama. And I was like, um, my boys are pretty dramatic. I am sure I can handle it.


Yeah, those people? Might have been right. If I even step out of her line of sight or she doesn't get her way- oh my goodness HER CRY is pitiful and heart wrenching and don't even get me started on her 'tude.

It is the best.



And if you can't hear it at the end there- she turns her back and Pffbts me.

Oh, and as she watches this play back she is YELLING EVEN LOUDER at the screen.

(And I am totally noticing I need outlet covers for that wall...)

  2. Heck yeah I told you, they are! ;) But oh, she's so girly and squishy and edible, noise and all. Keep the videos comin'! I've got a few of baby dude and his crazy ninja baby skills. Seriously can't get any work done with their cuteness factor, how about you?

  3. Heh. I used to say the SAME thing about my son being pretty dramatic. He has NOTHING on the girls. NOTHING. But then I can't put him in dresses, so it all evens out in the wash. ;-)

  4. I should've guessed the drama started this early because by the time they get to 8th grade, most girls are professional drama queens!

  6. I can totally relate...I have 2 girls but after having 2 boys. My 1 yr old is so loud...at church Sunday she was in the nursery and I could hear her scream all the way in the sanctuary. And everyone knew it was my daughter. The only reason she was in the nursery is because she screams that loud in church and that is even more disruptive.

    Love your blog...thanks for sharing your heart and your everyday with all of us. It is refreshing and inspiring.

  7. Oh yeah! The Girl is way louder than the Boy. And don't get me started on the 'tude. It got worse when she turned 3. :)

  8. She is such a girly girl! Love the video! She's got a thing for those plastic eggs. I'm glad I have a basket full at my house for when she comes over.

  9. What a cutie! I always notice things about my house in pics and videos. It is like I am blind to it in real life.

  10. Emma asked what she was saying and I just told her that she was talking her own special talk. Emma said "No. I think she's saying 'Mommy, where's my other sock?'"

  11. I call my sister's youngest (her fourth and a girl) "pterodactyl" because she screams like one. When you are child number four within an already noisy house, it pays to be loud.

  12. Oh my gosh. That girl is on the move and definitely has things to say. She's not going to get lost in that sea of boys, oh no. Precious little tough chick.

  15. Oh I remember this stage... I miss it!

    ReplyDelete
  16. LOL That is too cute! My 4th baby (who is also a girl) is louder then all my kids combined! I think they have to be sometimes to get their voice heard! :)

  17. Oh, this was great! Yeah, I am the only girl with 3 brothers, and after my hijinks my mother was ready for boys! I started walking at right at 9 months, and by a year I had mastered climbing out of my crib. Constant chasing after me. But oh, little girls are so cute when they're dramatic!

    ReplyDelete
  18. Wow, she is too cute. :) How do you EVER get anything done??? :) I think I would just squeeze her all day. :) Too fun.

    ReplyDelete
  19. She is just too cute! And that bow on her head! omg lol

    Alyssa is very loud too. When she has something to say she lets you know

    ReplyDelete
  20. Oh yes, it's so true. The drama...it will wear you OUT (and it starts early!) ;)

    ReplyDelete
  21. Um, yeah. I don't have boys, so I can't compare, but it would always crack me up when my friends of all boys would tell me how easy I had it. "Oh, that's how your house always stays clean. You have girls and they're neat and clean and quiet". YEAH RIGHT! My girls make SUCH messes, and are LOUD and very dramatic. Again, I can't compare, but I know my girls are no shrinking violets. :)

  22. I love the video. Just wait, this is nothing. I have four girls and the drama and the attitude just intensify with age. Sorry to be the bearer of bad news.

    ReplyDelete
  23. So true! Wait till she starts "singing" at the top of her lungs!

  24. separated at birth our girls are. i am telling you! mine says the same thing. all day. but, louder. she certainly knows how to make her voice heard. i try to remember that is a good skill for a woman in this world.

    have i ever mentioned that ivy is my great grandmothers name and we considered it for my daughter. now that would have been really freaky.

  25. Oh my little one is already a professional drama queen. The boy will be here soon and then I'll get to compare notes :)

  26. I can help you translate those yells. Remember, I have had almost 4 years with a girl. Here we go:

    1) MOM! Can I go to the mall?
    2) MOM! Can I have $20?
    3) MOM! Do you want to go get coffee and go shopping?
    4) MOM! Can I paint your nails...er...entire finger tips?
    5) MOM! Can I?
    6) MOM! Can I get every single toy out of my toy bins and cover the living room floor and then make YOU clean it up?

    There you have it.

  27. Wow...she is loud but still cute :)

    I have a toddler and he was loud when he was little that a few of my friends were glad they had little girls who only 'mewed' when they cried LOL

    By the way, I'm having Sasha's Sling Giveaway on my blog and thought this is a good place to share it. Hope that's ok? Thanks.

  28. Oh my goodness!! She totally sounds like Baby Sister. It is really too bad you do not live near me - they would be great friends :)

  29. It is funny, everyone tried to prepare me for a boy and I thought, no way will I be unprepared... Ella was a CRAZY physically gifted baby and kept me busy (still keeps me busy). Well, I had no idea about how joyfully destructive boys are. Ella may have been climbing things constantly but she never purposely knocked things over or threw food everywhere or constantly needed new clothing because she was eating dirt or rolling around on the dog mat. I'm sure you get what I am saying here. It is just the opposite realization in my household that there is indeed a difference between boys and girls, not necessarily socially influenced.

    Love the new blog look!

  30. I come from a large extend family I have 15 first cousins, I can tell you girls can out do boys in the loud department with ease.

    ReplyDelete
  31. I have 2 boys and 1 girl...and drama is right! For my daughter (age 3) everything is a reason to cry. She can turn tears on and off in no time!

    ReplyDelete
  32. I have 2 girls and one boy. The boy is in the middle-almost 5 now. He is by far my more challenging child simply because he never stops moving and trying out dangerous things. The girls test out things too, don't get me wrong, but he does a lot more of that than they do.

  33. I love how she's givin' that plastic egg heck! HA HA! And the bow in her hair? Tres Jolie! : )

    ReplyDelete
  34. Oh yeah, she and Libby will have fun yelling at eachother for sure!! Love it!

    ReplyDelete
  35. Och! The pain! The uterus is aching over here...

    She is edible.

    Love the floppy bow.

    ReplyDelete
  36. She is SO cute!

    And anyone who said that girls are quiet never had a girl! LOL.

    My 2-year-old beauty could outscream and outsqueal any boy. :)

    ReplyDelete
  37. So cute. My girl is very dramatic and it's only getting worse as she gets older.

    ReplyDelete
  38. Ivy is such a fashion plate! And she doesn't have to say "mama" because she knows you are always there. I love baby yells.

    ReplyDelete
  39. too cute - makes me want another baby even more than I already do!

    Love her little Zutano outfit!

    ReplyDelete
  40. I love this. Ariel stood over me wishing to be with you and her and your boys all because of your cute video.

    And her 'tude? It's impressive.

    ReplyDelete
  41. That egg really really got her emotions riled up and excited.

    ReplyDelete
  42. LOL, girls are definitely anything but quiet! My friend with boys is always telling me how she's so not used to the screaming when my girls are over. Abby and 'inside voice' are two things that we just can't seem to get to go together, sigh.

    Ivy just keeps getting more and more adorable - she has a lot to say! :)

    ReplyDelete
  43. I too am loving the one sock. She just happy babbling on..too cute!

    ReplyDelete
  44. My 3-year-old daughter is the loudest, most dramatic person I've ever met! :) She's also very canny, and will try anything to get her way. I'm so used to her saying "You don't love me," when she doesn't get what she wants, but at first it really bothered me!

    Ivy is a perfect gem! I really enjoyed watching the video. :D
