Without further ado, here are some things that are occupying The Girls – & their parents…
E (31 months) – she has her mother’s love for animals. The other day, her mother asked her whether she liked horses, cats, or dogs the most. She thought long & hard, then said “Cats!” Her “Aunt Danda” will be glad to hear that.
Her parents are trying to teach her a bit about counting. We’ve been showing her how to count on her fingers & she’s fascinated and keeps moving her fingers to try and mimic our counting.
Dora the Explorer continues to be a favorite. She’s learning some Spanish. “Abre” (“Open” – spelling?) is one of her favorite words.
She is being very willful by refusing to go to bed at night. Mom & Dad have had to resort to taking her “boo boo” (blanket) away from her in order to get her to go to sleep.
C (17 months) – her favorite cereal is Lucky Charms & she can say the words. Another favorite word is “Airplane,” which she says each time one flies by the beach towing a banner. She still loves to say “Bye Bye” and does a cute wave with her arm flopping against her side.
She is still mastering the finer points of walking. We call it her “Frankenstein walk,” as she resembles Frankenstein as she half-stumbles and holds her arms out for balance.
Thursday we were in Wal-Mart & she tried to grab some of those 5-Hour energy tablets. Mercifully, she did not take any of those.
