I love how being 9 (well, only a few days from being 10) makes you a total TWEEN. Emma Lou comes over, being all aloof and cool, the way 10 year olds are, and spies the girls' new Baby Alive dolls.
I told her that they really eat, drink, and poop. She really lit up when I said, "Poop"!
It's like she had to see it to believe it!! And so, with another very nonchalant, like "cool if you do and cool if you don't" voice, she asked, "Can I feed it?". What she really meant to ask is, "Can I feed it so I can see if it really poops?".
She involved my sweet baby so she could act like she was only playing dolls to entertain her. Ha. I know better!
The girl fed that baby bottle after bottle, and spoonful after spoonful, all the while checking for the "evidence"!!
That's ok, Emma. We like it when you come over.
And while I have all of your attention, let me let you in on a little project I am doing. (I have lots of New Year's activities, and we'll see how long all of them last) I downloaded (or uploaded, or whatever!!?) an app called Project 365 Pro. Since we are only into the new year by less than two weeks, you could probably go back and make up the first 11 days or so. It requires you to take a photo a day with your camera, and assign it to the day. It's fun to watch the pictures accumulate, because it's just a brief synopsis of your week, month, and eventually year. Jessi and I plan to print ours out once a month and either use it in our Project Life binders (a year's scrapbook project by Becky Higgins, that i could NOT finish, nor stay on task with last year... but I digress), or just print them out month to month in miniature size and make a little mini journal out of them. The app has room for comments on the photos, so you can even elaborate on the photo you chose, why you chose it, or what was special about it on that particular day. I'll share a couple more of my fun daily events I am doing as I "suck the marrow" out day by day on another day!! ANy of you English professors out there know who wrote that? I can quote it but not positive of the author. Well, Just thought you may like the app too!
Peace out, peeps. Mo
