We are at a very fun language stage with Anya Rashi. She is stringing together sentences, including "Mommy help me," and "Daddy key Superman." This last one was the result of a trip to our local hardware store to make a new house key for Peter. They were out of the regular silver keys in the correct size, so we had a choice between SpongeBob or Superman. :o)
The title of this post is another example of every two-year-old's ability to embarass their parents in front of other people. "Purple" and "blueberries" both come out of Anya Rashi's mouth sounding like "boobies." (!) She's also added another "poo" word to her vocabulary: she loves wearing a little ponytail on top of her head, and she calls it a "poof" . . . which, of course, sounds just like "poo." So we spend a lot of time with her pointing to her head and saying "poo, poo!" to anyone who will listen.
The photos of Anya Rashi are a little demonstration of how hard it is to get a picture of her these days! She is on the move constantly. The first picture is what she does when we tell her to smile for the camera. :o) The rest are the result of me trying to get a picture of her in the new purple shirt ("booby" shirt, if you're two) that Aunt Mary and Uncle Ron gave her for Christmas. Well, technically, the photo shoot was a success -- she's in the photo, wearing the shirt!
In other news, our sons are getting ready for their Cub Scout Pinewood Derby race this weekend! Car making has occupied many hours during the past 10 days, and they have Uncle Matt to thank for their awesome creations. He was such a fun, patient teacher with them, showing them the safe way to use tools and thinking of ways to implement their elaborate design ideas. All three of them had a ball making the cars. We'll keep you posted about the race results!
