"Hep-ping, Hep-ping, Hep-ping, Hepping...." in a little sing-song voice as she sweeps the floor with her little broom. Also "Lub you Mommy! Lub you... Mo mutch!"
So the other day Josie gave new meaning to the term "making a deposit." Uncle Darryl babysat for me while I was doing a bridal fair (which went great, by the way). Josie began emitting an unpleasant odor, shall we say, and when he went to change her he noticed that she felt 3 or 4 pounds heavier than normal. When he opened up her diaper, he found not only a "deposit," but also about two dollars in pennies!!! No, she didn't eat them... she just stuck them down her pants when she was helping clean up the mess of change from Grammy's room earlier in the day. Darryl immediately called Jesse and told him to quit his job because he has a kid who poops money. Now what can we feed her to turn this into quarters instead of pennies...?
Yesterday was such a beautiful day that we spent almost all of our time outside. We had a picnic (Sadie packed our basket and carried outside to our blanket), we had popsicles, we put up our egg tree (Sadie learned that Easter is all about "Jesus died on the cross but then, HEY! He came back to life!"), we played basketball, drew with chalk on the driveway, cleaned the garage, planted seeds for our garden, and best of all: Jesse put the kids' wagon together. They got it for Christmas from Lyd and Darryl, but it has been so stinkin' cold and snowy that yesterday was the first day that they actually got to play with it. And what a hit it was!!! We pulled them all over the driveway, up and down the street, all over the yard... they couldn't get enough. Once, as we were passing a neighbor's house, Sadie suddenly squealed with delight. I said, "What is it, Sade?" She answered, "I am just SO happy that we have this wagon! Yippee!"
