Whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy -- meditate on these things.
3/23 - I told Jeremiah the toaster was hot, and he held up his hand, palm facing, but not touching, and said, "hah".
3/25 - Jeremiah was whining about something, and Noah, to cheer him up, said, "Why cry, my pygmy fly?" It made me laugh anyway!
3/26 - JPD definitely says "hi" now, especially when people walk into the room. Grammy also taught him "high five" which is pretty fun. He said "hot" more, also.
3/27 - Joy remarks, "I got to put the dishwasher sugar in!" She meant putting the powdered detergent in, and I emphasized to her that it was not sugar, but poison.
4/2 - a bit of JDD's chipped tooth fix came out
4/7 - Joy, "I thought I was coughing, but actually I was bless-you-ing."
4/9 - JPD walk to Fire Station - so happy to be out and walking! Waving to everything and everybody
4/10 - Joy calls facial tissue "noser".
4/11 - JPD dropping stuff on floor. Mom, "Not a coleslaw fan, eh?" JPD, "Didn't like that stuff."
4/18 - Joy knows all numerals 1-9, and finger quantities 1,2,3,5. Playing with math cards with Mom and Faith.
4/18 - Joy play in attic > 1 hr. Has since played up there for hours many days. With clothes, mostly: suitcases, box for "hamper".
4/19 - Joy playing "balden eagle."
4/20 - Resurrection Egg Hunt. JDD's favorite part - watching when his siblings find that the last one is empty! My favorite part was hearing his happy giddiness when he said that was his favorite part.
4/22 - Her mother's daughter: Joy, "I win! And you win second!"
4/25 - JPD fall down porch stairs, catch self halfway
4/25 - F made 50% or more of pizza - chop onions, artichokes, press down dough, preheat oven, put dough in oven.
4/26 - Joy identified all the letters except D, M (said W), L, and U. This was in Curious George Counts from 1 to 100, where both upper- and lower-case letters were listed together.
She has also been able to write her own name for a while. She also knows all the letters in Faith's name, but not in the correct order yet.
4/26 - JPD can reach the handles on the pantry doors. This is big trouble!
