Lucy’s new thing at bedtime these days is to talk herself to sleep. I mean that literally – no matter what time she goes to bed, she talks and talks and eventually fades off into la la land.
Here is tonight’s babbling:
Pat cake, pat cake, pat cake (patty cake), trow it in da pan. (she repeated this about 3 or 4 times)
Mocagycle (she just heard a motorcycle go by). Yea! Mocagycle!
Roll it, roll it, roll it, trow it in da pan! (repeated this about 3 or 4 more times)
Ahhh, ahhh, ahhhh (this followed by some panting is Lucy pretending to be puppy).
Hold you, Daddy. Hold you, Mommy. Hey, Mommy! Hey, Mommy!
1, 2, tree, 4, five, sis, yeven, eight, nine! Yea, Norah! Yea!
She continues for quite a while but we can’t understand much more – it is all slurred together.
So it is about 8:10 a.m. and the girls are still sleep. What!? Not that they are early risers – they usually sleep until 7:30, but after 8 is unusual. We have spent endless hours outside this week enjoying the incredible weather – I guess they are just worn out.
I hardly know what to do with myself (obviously, since I’m blogging and not getting housework done).
Today is supposed to be rainy – maybe I can actually get something done inside today.
Enjoy your day!!
Norah prayed at dinner. We try to encourage her to pray from her heart, but usually she just wants to pray “God is good, God is great. Let us thank him for our food. Amen.” Tonight she added, “Thank you God for this beautiful day. Please don’t turn on your sprinklers in Heaven tomorrow. I don’t want it to rain. Amen.”
Anyone else tired of getting junk mail (I’m talking about snail mail junk mail)? I am. What a waste of paper! Did you know that “at least 100 million trees are destroyed each year to produce junk mail, and 28 billion gallons of water are used to produce the paper”? This info and more came from this link. Check it out and find out how to reduce the amount of junk mail you receive.
Norah has always enjoyed helping me in the kitchen! We try to bake together atleast once a week while Lucy naps. Of course, knowing this, the Morrison’s
gave the girls great presents for their birthdays – aprons and a cookbook. (Let me just say that Norah was not very happy about getting her picture taking – she just wanted to get baking.)
We made mini cheesecakes. Norah is a great helper! Actually, I was more of a helper this time around. Norah did almost everything!
Here is our finished product. We served them to our small group Bible study.
