My sweet Hope is getting big. She is a constant source of laughter at our house, as her vocabulary and understanding grow daily. Quickly -- a few favorites.
Hope loves to write. She scribbles and scribbles and tells me over and over, "I, I, A, A, O." Then she will hand me a pen and say, "Hopie," indicating that I should write her name for her on the page.
She loves her sissies. If she is up first, she will walk around saying, "Ell-yee, Sa-dee, Rain-ee," until her three sisters all join her downstairs.
She is a little selfish with her mama's attention and pushes anyone else out of my lap. "Yappee!"
She likes Bibles. "Bib-ee." All other books are "read-ee."
She calls any thing with a button a "beep."
She tells her sisters when they should say sorry. If someone is mean, she will say, "mean." And then point and say "Yorry."
She likes sharing a room with Raina. It has made going to bed much easier for her.
She doesn't like to be dirty. "Dir-tee! Wite!"
She always wants to drink "tea." Luckily, she is just as happy with a cup of warm water as she is with real tea. She usually gets warm water and a splash of milk.
She is not used to having a bit warmer weather, and still wants a hat, mittens and boots to go outside, even if we are all in shirtsleeves. And, okay, today it is snowing.
Loving life with my littles!
