Last weekend we went to a picnic at Dr. Ley’s house, one of Dave’s bosses. The kids wanted to know if it was Barry’s house, the boss they know. After explaining that he has more than one boss, Amelia asked “Which boss powers over you more dad?”. I like the way Amelia just says it like it is!
Yesterday Will and I were playing “I Spy”. He said “I spy with my little eye something that starts with the letter B”. I asked questions until he told me it was a helicopter. We talked about how helicopter starts with the letter H and then I asked where exactly he saw this helicopter in our house. He said “I see it in my heart AND in my brain”. Great, new rules for “I Spy” I guess.
Maggie is chatting more and more all the time. She isn’t saying “thank you” quite so much but does love to say “uPPP” whenever she needs to get somewhere. She uses it a lot when I’m making dinner and can’t really hold her much, tugging on my clothes crying, and when she’s hungry. She will stand by her highchair and say it over and over until I put her in her seat and give her a snack. She is a good communicator.
