i turned 31 last week...and the very same day phoebe sue woke up a new woman of one and a half. if ever there were a time to lament bygones and baby cheeks it would be now! sis is in full swing these days...wild and ornery and funny and beautiful and getting bigger and bigger for her tiniest britches every day. she loves thomas the train, peeling oranges, choking friends, sleeper-holding dolls, and doing the cupid shuffle. she goes bonkers for her brother, sticks treasures in her cheeks like a squirrel, hates brushing her teeth and feels water-boarded whenever i try to wash her hair. if the house is too quiet you can find her stealing away up in max's room, reading books or markering on the wood floors. her moods sway with the style of coat she has on...her red coat alter-ego: "rhoda"- sassy, confident, direct. her camel coat: "estelle"- sweet old-souled busy-body.
we keep telling bee to stop and stay awhile as she is...but everyday is a new word, a funny discovery, a changing girl. life with a phoebe sue is a hoot...and a half.
