In looking over our photos from March, I’m seeing a lot of them of one person! Miss Joy is quite popular, and very cute. She’s into everything, and jabbers about everything. We can even understand part of what she says!
Her favorite book is Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See? This copy was given to Elijah by his grandmother, probably 15 years ago. It has been taped together and glued together, and is still being enjoyed! I just ordered a replacement, though, a board book this time, because this one got left in a windowsill overnight and the condensation soaked it. It’s still readable, but the pages are all falling out and the covers are swollen. We can’t be without this book, though!
Mr. Imagination built a couple of hammocks, and his little sisters enjoyed them.
Helping the big boys mow lawn! She must have been trying to figure out how to start it.
There are two little babies at church, and Miss Joy loves them. So does her big brother Simon!
Miss Joy is an artist. She loves to draw! She often asks for pen and “papee!” She wants to “ite!” She focuses hard on what she is doing, and keeps at it until her piece of paper is covered with her scribbles.
She also loves to climb in bed with Little Miss! It’s so much fun to read at bedtime.
I’m not sure what she was doing here in Esther’s room.
Sitting in the windowsill behind the couch. This is where Brown Bear met its demise.
One afternoon she came marching into the living room brandishing a croquet mallet in one hand, a block of wood in the other, and dangling a toothbrush from her mouth!
Another day, she figured out how to climb into the washing machine. Can you tell we enjoy having this little girl around? She sure adds sparkle to our days!
And, here is a video I just remembered making.
