Out of the Mouths of Babes...

Holy Cow!! What a busy summer this has been. Elliott and Emily have moved back to Iowa -- and Ross is moving back to Iowa, too. YIKES. Hey, if you're doing it right -- life is plum full of changes, eh?

Of course, the biggest change is having Lilly be a part of our daily lives. She is three this summer -- so she's able to help set the table, fold napkins, pick cherries...

Put her own outfits together, including accessories...

She was very proud of the headband she made for ME -- out of a piece of t-shirt material...AND then she used my camera to take the picture.

I gave her a pedicure, she gave me some toe rings (I wore them all day -- and I think she might be on to something!)

Like every Grandma in the world -- I love to watch her sleep....here, with her constant companion, Sophie...

Lillian speaks very clearly -- which is so much fun. Well, most of the time....

The other night -- we were both in our nightgowns.  She looked at me for a long time, then said, "Grandma, pull your boobies up."

At least that's what I THOUGHT she said...but, uncertain, I asked, "What did you say?"

This time VERY clearly and slowly, she said, "Pull your boobies up."

I just looked at her.... 

To help me figure out what the problem was, she patted her own little chest and said, "Mommie's boobies are up here"...

I am totally rethinking the conversation part of our time together...
