Rock On!

When I came home from the grocery store this evening Elliet met me at the door and, after a little prompting from her dad, she threw her little fist in the air and in a high, squeaky voice she yells "Rock on!" I think Jedd is missing RC.

This is Luke, Elliet and Kenai's cousin. He's so stinkin' cute!  Posted by Picasa

Fear and Loathing

Two weekends ago I was going out to WalMart (I know, boo, hiss) and decided to take Elliet so Jedd could get some things done around the house. For some reason, Colerain was completely backed up , literally stop and go. You may recall that Elliet gets very, puking car sick. Sure enough, she throws up all over herself. I hadn't brought a change of clothes since we were just running to the store (I now keep spares in the trunk) Luckily, we were in front of the children's consignment shop where I buy most of the girls' clothes. I got her out of the car and had no choice but to strip her down to her diaper, take her in the store that way and buy her an outfit. You can imagine the looks...but the story continues. I was trying to get her back in her carseat while talking to Jedd on the phone and getting all the puky things bagged and into the trunk. We pull back into the crazy traffic jam. WalMart is maybe another mile up the road, if that. We are nearly there, still in traffic that is mostly standing still when I hear Elliet in the back, "Click it. Click it." I look back, and sure enough, she's trying to buckle her car seat straps. Her arms weren't even in the straps, I had literally just set her in the seat! Fear and panic...and then realizing that we were sitting still along with every car around us and the driveway was maybe ten feet ahead. Bad Mommy!

Elliet only recently started watching tv. I got some Dora DVDs from the library while she had her cast on and now she's completely hooked. She gets so excited when I put one on, she runs to me saying, "Doba, monkey, Doba, monkey, Doba, monkey!! Monkey, Doba, tv?!" Her S's are still funny so she says, "No Fiping (swiping)!! Oh, Man!" It's very cute. Anyhow, that's a recent development, I used to get jealous when other parents talked about how their babies were mesmerized by Baby Einstein. Kenai is proving herself different from Elliet in a lot of ways, she is very LOUD, she likes people, even strangers and she likes to watch tv, yeah! Posted by Hello

Apparently, Over the Rhine's "Drunkard's Prayer" causes spontaneous dancing. I've never seen Elliet and (her friend) Jaden do this but as soon as I put on this CD they started slow dancing together! Posted by Hello
