in other news, i thought i'd share what you thanked God for during your bedtime prayers tonight. in this order: "apples, bananas, water, ice, dora, boots, elmo, daddy". dora, elmo, and boots always make the cut...and usually gigi, grandaddy, grandypa, nikki, jackson, anna cate, and hazel are all in there too. but tonight you were particularly focused on God's provision of nourishment in your life=)
i love you sweet angel. i'm so lucky you are my girl.

you are the cutest. that's nothing new, but it just surprises me every day i think. my sweet friend libby told me that the terrible two's is a crock. that her sweet boy isaiah gets cooler every day. so far, you are following in his footsteps. do you remember the germer's? libby and kevin and isaiah?? they are in virginia and we miss them so much.
so as for general updates, fall is here. it's getting cooler and we're liking that except that we're both a little sick. no big deal though. i think we're gonna make it. you're in your little pre-school 4 or 5 days a week now and doing MUCH better than before. i don't think i've told you this either, but we started you in one but switched after a month. i didn't know if i was being a crazy mama with unrealistic expectations, but we went on my instincts and changed schools, and they have proven me not crazy. at least, not crazy in this situation. mama's crazy is still up for debate. but you like this new school so much better. i'll leave it at that. but mama's heart is much happier now that yours is=) i've started my new job. i love it. it's a somewhat emotional thing for me to be working as a nurse practitioner-just because it reminds me of how God carried me through grad school in the midst of having a sweet precious girl that was so sick and in and out of the hospital for the first two years of her life. but enough of the dramatic and back to the updates...
~one of my favorite things you do lately is give us a run-down of each day. this is what you say, in this order: mommy work, daddy work, cat-n play friends (catherine plays with friends, at school), eat, take nap, mommy comes, go home." i think it's hilarious (and also brilliant) that you tell us in the correct order what happens every day.
~a few weeks ago you were playing in the tub with your letters that stick up on the wall. i was listening to you playing and you kept saying "LETTERS! YEAH COME ON! LETTERS! YEAH COME ON!" i don't know where that came from, but it was pretty funny=)
~remember how you got a skin infection around your g-tube this summer? well now you will randomly pull up your shirt and point to your tube and say "tube hurt......better". and then you got strep throat in august and you keep saying "sick.....better". like you want to remind us that you were sick but now you're better. we saw auntie robyn in target last month and that was the first thing you said to her. drama queen, maybe?
~you like to tell us who you think is cool. which is everyone. but if we let you go in order you usually say "cat-n cool! daddy cool! mommy cool! jackson cool! gigi cool! granddaddy cool! grandypa cool! nikki cool!" we also don't know where you learned what "cool" means...
~you have a book called "poodlena" about a pink sassy poodle. you call her "penny-woona" and we make you say it all day long.
~we had one of my favorite saturdays a few weeks ago. we sat on the couch snuggled under blankets together reading books and watching movies and eating pizza. i hope we have lots of those saturdays over the next 16 years=) they are my favorites.
ok. here are some pictures.
