Latest Sayings of Boogs

Yesterday, Boogs said out of the blue, "Ery, coot (cute); YiYi, coot, MiMi, coot, Mama, coot, Dada, coot, Fovo, coot, Ammeh (Sammy), coot." :o)

One of today's words was "cowguhl" (cowgirl). This was in reference to something Erynn was playing with him. Oh, he also said "gapefoot" (grapefruit) and "appuh" (apple). 

His favorite words are still "eee" (eat), "fi" (fish), "dine" (Einstein video), "joo" (juice), "shoe", "sigh" (outside), "pay" (play), "buh" (book).

We've been to several parks lately. He gets so excited but then seems somewhat overwhelmed by it all. He will go right up to anyone and say, "Hey!" and wave. When it's time to leave, he will turn around, wave, and say, "bye!" He even went up to a lady yesterday, pointed right at her hip and the bench she was sitting on and said, "ch-ehh" (chair). It was so funny.

Chicken Soup Anyone?

It would appear that Emi was generous and shared her germs with the rest of the family. Isaac has a cough - nothing bad. Erynn has some congestion. Eli has the full-blown bug like Emi had - fever, earache, sore throat, upset stomach. I have a scratchy throat and a sinus headache. :o( I hope Boogs isn't coming down with it. I asked him if he was ready for his nap, and he said yes. Hmmm...

Mimi got to go the State/Carolina Women's basketball game with Daddie last night. It was free for kids and $7 for adults.

A Few Firsts

Not a whole lot of exciting stuff going on here. Mims got some kind of bug that gave her a fever, headache, chills and no appetite for a couple of days. She seems to have recovered without passing it onto anyone :o). Isaac couldn't understand why he couldn't play "night-night" with her. 

We took a walk to the pond yesterday. Isaac threw his first sticks in the pond. Every time I thought he was going to head into the water - my nerves - ahhh. We saw a rather large, dead large-mouth bass floating by the edge. He can also do the slides in the backyard by himself now :o). 

Erynn has a big "fight" scene to do in her puppetry this weekend. She's a little nervous, I think. 

I think we may have found a new idea for Valentine's. We actually bought a WHOLE cheesecake at The Cheesecake Factory. Mmmm... Since we always share our pieces when we go there, eating a whole slice at once was quite a different experience. It does make more sense to buy a whole one than to pay for each one to get one though! It's a good thing we took it home; there was a two and a half hour wait at 4:00! 

We sold our first batch of stuff to Kid to Kid this week. One miniscule dent in the basement of horrors... we're hoping to put the money in our vacation jar.
