I might be a democrat…

and other things you may not know. I have seriously curtailed my meat intake over the past 9 months. I am still nursing Jessica. I’ve lost 11 lbs in the last 60 days. My ankle is finally back to (almost) normal.

“Piece a Mommy, piece a daddy, piece a Dessie, all sare suhdedah” (all share together) the heart-shaped Mother’s Day cookie and note she made for me in nursery.

This morning as I was running in the garage, Jess peeked her head through the partially opened back door to tell me “I haf a pobum”
Me: (Hopping off the treadmill). Oh no! What is your problem?
Jess: “I nee heylp.”
Me: Ok, what can I help you with?
Jess: “I no know you are. It sopp, I yike “Mom” an I no know you are. Nee sart ova. (Translation: I didn’t know where you were. The tv show I was watching, Super Why, stopped and I was like “Mom” and I didn’t know where you were and I need you to start it over).
Me: Oh, I’m sorry. I will help you.
Jess: “K Mom, faoh me, faoh me.” (Follow me, follow me) as she takes my hand to lead me into the living room. She says “H’mon, faoh me” a lot :).

No pants but she’s got pearls.

She also keeps telling me “I yoose a toof” (I loose a tooth) She has seen Aubby with her missing teeth, she saw Shark (on Word World) lose teeth, and her friend Riley just lost a tooth too.

Usually they just get “icewa-uh packs” but this day they also got “appa juice”

With a scrunched up, loving, sad face: “Oh, poor yitta one, Mommy, dis yitta one a sad, nee icewah-uh pack and wach worworld. Poor yitta one. Don worry yitta one, Dessie heyp you, Dessie snugga you.” She’s been saying that first part for months and it’s one of my favorite things she says. Translation: Oh, poor little one. Mommy, this little one is said and needs to watch Word World with an ice water pack (ice pack). Poor little one. Don’t worry little one, Jessie will help you, Jessie will snuggle you. She then asks me to open the “cold fidge” or “big fidge” so she can select the appropriate ice water pack (we have teething ones, owie ones, adult ones, etc.) for the little one who needs her attention. She’s so compassionate and she doesn’t discriminate. She helps beans, “rockos” (rocks), wacky doll, whoa whoa, me, Ritchie, acorns, little people, wooden blocks and many other things. It’s cute to watch because she’s so tender and she knows just where the icewa-uh pack needs to go (if I help, I usually put it in the wrong place). She ministers to someone in this way at least once a day. I think it stems from all of these reasons: She likes to snuggle and watch Word World (with an ice water pack when she’s hurt or doesn’t feel good). She loves any excuse to watch Word World. She watched her mother prop her ankle with an ice pack for the better part of a month. She’s a sweet girl. Oh how I love this baby one.

“Mommy, I haf i-free-comb peas?”

  1. Ah! I love it. She is so dang cute. Evie needs to come take some notes on making stuffed animals feel better because usually she's banging them against something to GIVE them owies. Haha. Oh man. That Jess! I just loved reading this post.

  2. Linds, I thought you would be on the Mitt Romney committee or a delegate for the Texas Republicans! Tell us, you are just kidding!! Jessica is so sweet and talks so well. Can't wait to see her! You all look great!

  3. Haha. I wrote that because Ritchie keeps calling me a democrat. We've been paying more attention to politics lately and I've realized that my views have become much more centrist than they were 4 years ago. I'm still in Mitt's corner for sure. I really hope he gets the nod. And I actually have more appreciation for his moderate views (which he's getting slammed for by ultra conservatives) than I did the last time around. Go Mitt :).

  4. I figured that was the case with your democrat comment. Also I forgot to say way to go on the weight loss, you look awesome!

  5. Loved this post too! That Dessie girl is such a sweetheart. I don't know how you could look at that cute face and deny her anything. 🙂 Give her kisses from her grandma who misses her oh so much.

  6. She is so cute! I'm sure my Lydi girl would love to sit and have an i-keen cone with “Jekikuh”. I can just hear them giggling together. 🙂
