Gramma Day...



It's Gramma Day!
It's the day of the week when Grandpa and I keep our lil Grandangel all day.
Since she lives just next door, we get to see her nearly every day, but one day a week, we devote just to our grandgirl.  We all love it.  I think she does too.
Here, Grandpa is helping H. feed the sheep alfalfa cake.

Today there are...
books to read
songs to sing
dances to dance
blocks to stack
ponies to play with
walks to take
balls to throw
hugs to give
kisses to kiss

A few first words....
Appa (apple)
Wuff Wuff (dog)
Dweeee! (excitement!)
Nut
Hot
But (button)
Pigs (toes)
Yay!
Oh no!
Whoa!
Bawck Bawck (chicken)
Moo (cow)
Sh-it (sit, a command given to the dog)

A song she sings (with me)...
"Ah-shee Wash-ee Woo"
When we wash hands, I sing these words to the hymn
I Shall Not be Moved
sung by Ricky Van Shelton
Why?
Because our kids , when they were toddlers, used to
sing it this way...
"Ah-shee Wash-ee Woo"
(I shall not be moved)
Get it?
Now H. sings it....
Ah-eee ah-eee ooooo
(I love it!)

  7. Hi, stopping by from my blog hopping trip today. What a beautiful little girl. I noticed your 1930's crib quilt and realized I have that kit with the exact same fabric. I bought it at the Junk Bonanza in MN two years ago (I know, now it's a UFO) was wondering if you were there too?

  10. Heh, heh. I love the way she's looking at those sheep, and her hand! And how so many of her first words are farm-related.

    Enjoy these dear days!
