It snowed and hailed at our new house today. Sophie instantly wanted to be outside in the weather while Josie placed one foot on the deck and exclaimed "My feet awe too cowd!". Sophie and I put a big mixing bowl outside to collect the hail which she brought in and ate with Jake.
Jake was trying to sleep in this morning and Josie sat in the living room, bellowing periodically at Sophie. I came in to remind her (yet again) that her daddy was sleeping. I took one step out of view and she picked up the mallet for her xylophone and proceeded to beat on it. I stepped back in and she looked up at me and asked "Too loud?" with a huge grin on her face. She knows. Oh she knows.
We had oatmeal and toast for breakfast this morning. Sophie is in charge of making the toast lately. She gets her chair up, puts the bread in, we retrieve it once it's done and then she gets to butter it. Lots of crumbs fly but she is proud as a peacock. I made the mistake of licking the butter knife in front of her the other day. She literally gasped and said "Oh Mom! No! No! No! You'll cut your tongue!".
At bedtime, Sophie likes to have her head rubbed from the base of her neck up to the top of her head. "From my neck to my hair" she instructs every night and she is is usually out like a light within 5 minutes of me leaving the room. Grandpa's Revenge, on the other hand, likes to call "Mommmaaayye" over and over. Tonight I decided to tough it out and just let her shout to her hearts content. She's not upset, just bored I think. She decided to add "Can you hear me??" to her calls of my name. Then when that wasn't working she pulled out her Ace in the Hole and said "I need to go poopoos." I was 90% sure she was just trying to get out of bed but what are you going to do if she really has to go. She was pleased with herself when I got her out to head to the toilet.
We've been thinking of you lots and hope this window into our day brings a smile to your face.
