On Saturday, Jill rode to the farmers' market for our weekly stash of fruit and croissants. On the way home, she stopped by a garage sale and bought a wagon full of blocks for Clara. $3 well spent.There haven't been enough pictures of Jill lately. So here's another. She keeps on being super mommy. Today, she pulled the kids on her bike to my office, and we all ate lunch at Papa Del's. Mmmmm.
Janny smiles and laughs and grabs toys with her hands.
But I want to talk about Clara.
Some 2 months ago, she took apart our toilet paper dispenser, and one of the 3 parts disappeared. Jill and I looked to no avail. Today, Clara was playing with the remaining two pieces, so Jill asked her to find the other piece and then went off to work on something. When she returned, Clara was playing with all 3 pieces. She wouldn't say where she hid that piece.
She loves to enunciate the 'k' sound at the end of words. MilKKKK, blocKKKK, stucKKKK, socKKKK. She also said 'poopy' this week.
She knows the number 2. She's very happy about this. When she holds 2 balls, she says '2 balls'. Same with 2 pieces of pasta or 2 blocks. Strangely, she also says '2 mommy' and '2 daddy' while pointing at one of us. I take that to mean that we each do the work of 2 mommies and daddies. It has to be a compliment, right?
