"Daddy, come look! I drew a whale!"

And indeed she had, much to my surprise and delight.

The latest in Lynnie-speak

Carolyn continues to impress and surprise with the sentences that come out of her mouth. Here is a sampling of some of the best.
  • "I'm a Toots Magee today." I'll leave it up to your imagination to guess what she did just before saying this.
  • "We're not supposed to kick kids. We only kick daddys." Good advice for anybody of any age, really.
  • "Mommy, you're the first mate of ketchup." Said while Mommy was putting ketchup on her plate.
  • "I got crumbs all over the bed." At least she acknowledged it that one time.
  • "Don't tell me what the rules are. I have no idea what you are talking about." Believe me, she had an idea what I was talking about.
  • "I'm growing big muscles!"
  • "Daddy, come on! Vamonos!" She knows to use Spanish when I'm not going fast enough.
  • "Everybody do the Lynnie dance!" The Lynnie dance must really be seen for full effect.
  • "This is my toot jacket." I'll leave it up to your imagination to guess what she did to her jacket.
  • "I am miserable Carolyn! Miserable Carolyn! Miserable Carolyn! I am miserable!"
  • "I'm not silly at all." I must respectfully disagree.
  • "I will fix it with my superpowers!"
  • "Lynnies don't scoot." Every night we lay in bed to read books or watch a show. Every night Carolyn lays in my spot. Every night I tell her to scoot over. Every night she tells me this in response.
  • "I wish I could open your tummy and get my bagel out so I could put it in my tummy. But I can't. [frown]" Did I feel bad about eating her bagel after she said this? Yes, but it was worth it to get the quote. It should be noted that she had just finished eating a donut when she said this, so don't feel too sorry for her.

Dress up... sort of

More playing in the snow

Here are a few pictures I took a few weeks back of Carolyn playing in the snow after a big snowstorm. She had quite a bit of fun tromping through the snow. Also eating the snow.
