It has been hard for me to get used to my daddy being gone on the nights he is in class late. I like it best when he gives me my bath and reads me my night night stories, I mean Mom is OK but she is not nearly as entertaining as Dad.

Anyway, I am beginning to get into the routine (it is only two nights a week) and to help me feel even better Dad calls me to say night night!! I get so excited when the phone rings and his photo pops up.

I do a lot of smiling, nodding and signing "I love you"....


Occasionally I say "yes" (and look goofy, apparently:)......

And at the end of the conversation I say very softly (and sweetly) "Night, night Daddy".

Thank you for calling me Daddy, and thank you to my CI's for allowing me to not only hear that someone is on the other end of the phone but to recognize that it is my dad's voice and to understand what is being said..........


The Helper

I love to help out around the house and "clean!", especially when it comes to feeding the cats, sweeping the floor and dusting the tables. I also love clean warm clothes, fresh out of the dryer. I try to be helpful by folding the laundry with Mom, but a lot of the time I just end up in the laundry basket.

 Here I am laid back and relaxing.....
 Ripley cat is enjoying himself as well.

I am pretty darn cute.


Trick or Treat!

Yesterday was Halloween, what a special day! I am not so into dressing up so I wore my pumpkin shirt and skeleton pants, and an awesome hat (sometimes:).

We went over to Eliana's to Trick-or-Treat in  her neighborhood, it was so fun to go up to houses and have candy put into my bag! I did my best at saying "trick-or-treat" and "thank you" and I wasn't shy at all!

After we got back to Eliana's we each got to pick out one piece of candy from our bags- we both chose lollipops, my first one ever and it was yummy!!

Eliana was a bumble bee, how cute is she?!

Here we are last year, it seems that not much has changed at all:)..................
