Linguistic Adventures with Miss E, Part II

Scene: Miss E is looking at a children's Old Testament book. Mrs N lounges on the floor nearby.

Miss E: That's a boy.

Mrs N: Yeah.

Miss E: That's a girl.

Mrs N: Yeah, Adam and Eve.

Miss E: Adam and Eve. They're nakey! (turns the page) Now they dressed! They friends?

Mrs N: Yes, they're friends. (Tries desperately not to laugh. Fails.)

Mrs N: Where's Bonesteele's binky?

Miss E: I don't know. It's hiding! (Looks around) How annoying.

Bonesteele had prunes for the first time today, and he was a definite fan. Being quite new to the whole "eating from a spoon" thing, he made a mess of himself:

Oh and as a bonus, here is the hickey he gave himself yesterday!

I Guess It's True What They Say...

Between the ages of 1 and 2, Miss E was the Human Vacuum Cleaner. I swear our food bill went up by about $100 a month. Her typical lunch was a slice of bread, a few slices of cheese, a few slices of sandwich meat and lots and lots of fruit. Breakfast was three adult-sized bowls of Cheerios. And she had the massive growth spurt to show for all that food.

But now? Here is what Miss E ate today.

Breakfast: one bowl Cheerios, heavy on the milk please Mom.

Lunch: one glass Orangeade and five grapes.

Dinner: one glass water and part of one roll.

That's it! How does she survive?? I'll tell you. She mysteriously sucks the nutrients from the air around her.

Shocking News

This just in! Two-year-olds HATE posing for the camera! It's shocking.

Okay, fine. The title was just a teaser to lure you in.

But here is photographic evidence:

The following picture captures how Mr N feels about the lack of enthusiasm Miss E displays for picture-taking. And is that the finger from little Bonesteele??

I just got my hair cut today! The stylist took off about 6 inches!

And here's the cutest little boy baby in the whole world!

Day Trip to the Coast

Travis, Jeanie and Jewell were at Cannon Beach a couple of weeks ago, so we drove up for a daytrip. We had lots of fun!

And contrary to photo evidence, Bonesteele came too.
