Sometimes I get to watch my little girl while I do house repairs. This is one of those times. I got to clear the paint off the glass while she was coloring next to me (on the inside).
This week we hear new things from Katja:
I watched RA two times.
push me closer.
And what letter is that?
Today Katja and I were talking about a new mark on the tag of one of her dolls. She said: "Mommy wrote it." That is she used the past tense of an irregular verb! "Me excited!" to use another of her current phrases. This is a phrase I heard yesterday after she said that we needed to get the "ingredients" to make a "birthday cake".
Blue bear, which is actually a dog… has been found. Blue bear is Katja’s special companion. He goes everywhere. Last Sunday he decided to stay the week at South Eugene High. It was a rough week without him — especially at bedtime. Katja would tell us that blue bear was sleeping in his sleeping bag. However, this Sunday he was found and returned! Things are looking up.
Biking to drop Katja off and then biking to pick her up has been great! I often pass this place and wish I had a $5 bill with me. Today I did!
When I was in 6th grade my grandpa flew to Germany and stayed with us for a few weeks. He and I pulled out my dad’s train set and put it together. I remember the really old catalogs from the 1950s that my dad had.
Tonight Katja was sitting on my lap looking at my old LEGO catalogs. She must have sat there for 45 minutes going through them.
It is funny. Katja only wants to eat rice with chopsticks now.
