Wuv Voooooo and Other Hannahisms

Hannah is such a mimic these days and she finds the humor in everything. This weekend, she decided to adopt one of Emily's backpacks. She puts it on (with help of course:)and goes to get a hat, and then fills a basket with toys and puts that over her arm, and proudly professes, "Skkkoooooool, buh bye!"

She is learning the art of sharing (insert laughter, lots of it)and has perfected the shrill sound of "MINE" while smothering said item against her itty bitty self. In all honesty though, she is getting better about sharing and will trade items; Emily has actually worked hard being a good role model and teacher. I think Emily sees it as a challenge and wants Hannah to learn from her.

We had Thanksgiving dinner with Daddy's family at Grammy's house. Both girls thoroughly enjoyed Thanksgiving and are extremely eager to decorate for Christmas. Mommy is too!

But my biggest joy came this morning. Now, Hannah is excellent at telling us when she needs to have her diaper changed, she definitely understands directions and she gives hugs and kisses much more freely now, so there is no doubt we have good communication. BUT this morning, as she settled down for a nap, I said, as I always do, "I love youuu." And for the first time, she smiled one of her killer smiles and sang out, "Wuuv vooooooooooooo, Mommy." Probably scared the poor kid out of eight years growth when I let out a whoop and ran back to squeeze her another few times. What a wonderful way to begin a day!

What a precious moment! You will remember that forever! I cannot wait to hear those words come out of my darling Kaylee's mouth! Right now I have to settle for 'hi', 'bye' and 'uh-oh'!

I am so happy for you. That just seems to make everything all right, doesn't it. When Lindy does that I squeeze her like it is never going to happen again. I never want to take hearing that for granted.

Thank you for sharing Hannah with us. I love her and Em!!! They looked so pretty in their outfits, too.

I'm going to try to call soon.

Love you,
