In case you ever happen upon T and E babbling away and wonder what they're trying to say, here's a little handbook to help you understand a few of their favorite current not-so-intelligible words and phrases -- plus my latest iPhone pictures, as always:
* Amma: Grandma. They started calling my mom "Amma" a loooong time ago, and it seems to be here to stay!
|Playing all morning in the church nursery is some seriously grueling work, y'all.|
|The moon is their favorite thing ever. They look for it each night and ask us to take them out to see it. Here's Tamsie (held by Amma) pointing up at one of those moons that appears as the sun is setting. She's loving it!|
|Evangelyn shows Granddaddy the moon|
|Tamsie is fascinated by this table on our deck.|
|Inside are bubbles, and she knows it.|
|Going for it!|
|Speaking of, here's Ebie herself looking for the moon again at sunset|
|Toga party! Making the Greek side of the family proud!|
|Toga toga toga!|
Rock Pay-Pay: Rocking chair, or sometimes "please hold me in the rocking chair and rock me. For 5 seconds, and then you'd better put me back down so I can go get into everything again!"
Sissy: Sister, of course! I hear this one all day long.
Up: I want up, etc., plus anything else that T or E needs a word for at the time. For example, today T handed me a set of cars linked together and said, "Up!" She wanted me to take them apart for her.
