January 31st, 2011

Erin bought me a Captain Kirk figure for Christmas, I keep it on my desk. When Nora visits me, she asks to play with the "man"; a few days ago, I successfully taught her to call him "Kirk." So now she walks around with him saying "Kirk!" She can even say "Enterprise" when prompted. That's my girl!

She also likes playing with a paper zombie I made from another of Erin's Christmas gifts, but she's not allowed to do that anymore after ripping one of his legs off. Think I might need a cabinet for all 12 when I'm done!

Tea for Two

Addendum: Sorry I didn't post this sooner, I had a bunch of stuff to do!

Nora likes playing tea party. She doesn't understand the nuances that well, such as the need to keep from walking on the place settings or keeping all the tea from pouring-out while she walks around with the teapot, but she recognizes which is the tea, the cream, and the sugar, and can pour tea and cream into a cup, then spoon sugar into the cup, and stir it too!

Nora's party was today; the weather held-out and everyone was able to come! Woo! Full house!

If anyone has pictures they'd like to see posted, please send them to me, my camera was out of commission for a while as it warmed-up from being outside (it was foggy for a while).

Yikes! 2011! I'm going to have to get used to typing that!

Erin and Nora traveled down to Waterville yesterday to spend the night with Grammy Tina. Me, I stayed with the kitty, and overdosed on zombie computer games (as well as fixing bookshelves, installing curtain brackets, and laundry, of course). Erin's cousin Matt was in the area and stopped by to see them; he's a cool guy, and apparently Nora really likes him. She tends to be a little more skittish around men than women, but took to him quite quickly. Might have been the guitar? She loves music, what can we say.
