It is so beautiful and what a fun story!;cat=fav I really enjoyed browsing her gallery for inspiration! Journaling: It is almost time for bed. The treasure chest (AKA the bureau in the background) has been refilled with all the goodies pulled from its depths during the day. Kelsey the “bendavle” doll has been changed into her jammies, tucked into her sleeping bag, and placed lovingly in the bottom left drawer until morning. The monkey pillowcase, torn and threadbare is positioned with monkey facing up on the end of the bed away from the wall. The Dora quilt is there, as is the “aminal” blanket from infant days, and a new arrival, the quilt from Mrs. Baumert’s Bears preschool class (Nevaeh’s square is pink with aparkles, of course!). And then there are these characters: Woody, Baby Bear, and Mousey. They are the elite, the chosen of the dolls and toys. They, above all others, are honored. They, carefully positioned and tucked in, get to join her...the stuffed little three in her bed. February 10, 2010 K.

Not sure if I like the word strips in the bottom right...opinions welcome! Journaling: Today as I was working on your baby book, I came across this group of photos from April 2008. I have always loved the expressions and the colors of these pictures, but today as I looked I noticed something that made me laugh. There is Nevaeh, hamming it up for the camera. And there you are. What are you doing? Putting some found object in your mouth, of course! I love the look of determination as you eye the chosen item, then your delight as you pop it in your mouth and begin to gnaw. Even today, at 2 1/2 years old, you still have a penchant for eating small inedible things. If I had a penny for every time I have said, “Ellie, take that out of your mouth! That is not food!,” I would be a millionaire I think. Thankfully you have never choked and usually spit it out when instructed. (Although lately when I tell you to spit, you gulp quickly and say with a giggle, “I did eat it mommy!” Arrghh!!) Though I am not always a fan of your culinary choices, there is an upside to your little quirk. You tend to be fairly adventurous and willing to try new cuisine. As long as you supplement your oddities with real food, I guess I will be satisfied and wait for this phase to pass. (Soon, I hope!)

And yes, we now have door alarms installed!!! Text of the email: Did you happen to get Nevaeh a &quot;Goosebumps&quot; movie at the library? Cause if not, then her story of sneaking out behind me while I was putting in some receipts, going out the garage, riding her bike to the library, getting a movie, and coming home all by herself is completely true and not made up at all! My heart is racing a bit. I'm not sure how she managed to sneak out without me hearing her! Cassie Jones: Fab Photo Clusters Tutorial K.
