3/19 - Mommy asks, "Where are all those hiccups coming from?"  Faith responds by opening her mouth wide and pointing down her throat.

2/23 - Faith said "I love you" to me!  It sounds rather like "hello" with three syllables.  She also tries to do the sign, and ends up with just her index finger up.  She does this when leaving my presence (yes, she's started doing that more and more!) - she waves and says "bye-eye" and waits for me to respond, "Bye, I love you.  See you later!"

She now clearly and more often says "no" and "uh-huh" and "doh" (don't).  She also said "aye-dow" when she wanted me to hold her upside-down yesterday.

She plays with her brothers without me a lot now, even outside.  They take such good care of her.  They have even been known to put on new diapers and clothes for her!

They love each other so much, it is so fun to watch them interact.

I am working on teaching Faith how to use the stool to climb up onto the closed toilet so she can reach the sink to wash her hands.  She can do this now, and we're working on getting back down, which is harder.  Very soon we'll do her potty-training day.  I know it will be different than it was with Noah - she'll need more of my assistance - but it will be very nice to be done with diapers for the moment.

One time during school Faith made a nice design with pattern blocks that resembled a sun.  She likes writing and playing with the blocks, cuisenaire rods, and balance scale.  Usually, all the pieces are on the floor by the time I'm done with the boys' school.  But she is good at helping me clean up afterwards.

Faith is such a joy to have in our house!

How different she will be next time you see her, Stephan! How different she will be next time WE see her!

What a sweetheart. I miss her.
