Visiting

Overheard at the Loves: “Look at this face? Don’t you just want to eat this face? it’s like it was made for eating!!” (all speaking about the delicious new baby, of course)

Anthony: Aunt Weenie, I love you vewy vewy vewy much! (shy grin)
Reenie: Anthony, I love you very very very very very much!!
A: I love you vewy vewy vewy vewy vewy vewy vewy vewy vewy vewyv ewy vewy vewy vewy vewy vewy vewy vewy vewy vewy vewy vewy vewy vewy vewy vewy vewy vewy vewy vewy vewy vewy much!!!
R: I love you that much too!! (hey, it’s bedtime, and I’m sure I can’t beat that).

Rosie: Cracky?? Cracky!! CRACKY!!! (wants a cracker)
I think that’s my favorite word she says because its always with such gusto- CRACKY!!!

On the drive to MD (8 hrs plus stops), Maria (almost 2) took a 1/2 hr nap instead of her usual 2.5 hour nap. Awesome. I have to say, she did AMAZINGLY well, no screaming fits, no unraveling. Lots of kid song CDs, lots of snacks, lots of various games to keep her happy, but she did quite well (especially for a kid who only slept 1/2 hour). Anyway, the last 40 minutes of the 9 hour trip sounded like this:

Maria: Inside?
Cora: You want to go inside? A few more minutes…
M: Inside
Reen: Look, can you see the trees?
M: Inside
Reen: Do you want to sing the Suzie song??
M: Suzie song?
Reen & Cora & Maria: (all to the tune of Mary had a little lamb)
Suzie has a big black ball… big black ball… big black ball… Suzie has a big black ball… She likes to catch her ball.
Maria (continuing the song- because you can’t stop after just one verse): Evywere Suzie went…
All: Everywhere that Suzie went… Suzie went… Suzie went… everywhere that Suzie went… she likes to catch her ball.
Suzie bring it back again, back again, back again, Suzie bring it back again, she likes to catch her ball
Suzie lives at Reenie’s house, Reenie’s house, Reenie’s house, Suzie lives at Reenie’s house, she likes to catch her ball.
M, continuing the song on her own: Reenie’s house, Reenie’s house, la lala catch her ball.
M: Inside?
C: Oh look, horses!
M: Inside?
R: We’re gonna go see Rosie and Anthony and Baby Thomas and Doctor Love and Mrs Love.
M: Inside? Rosie? Inside!
R: Should we sing the Suzie song?
Repeat Suzie song. usually at least twice through.
M: Inside!
… you get the picture… the last 40 minutes someone was quite sure that she wanted out of the car and inside someone’s house, anyone’s house really.

More to come…
