Noni and Popi have Emma for the weekend now. My plan is to get a few things done today while M. is working and then we'll start the floor project tonight. I hope to clean Emma's malawi chair and our couch and paint some trim in the living room.
I had this waiting in my email this morning. So there was no need for me to worry. Of course I worry more about me missing her than her actual welfare ;)
Hi Mommy and Daddy,
I just wanted to let you know that I had a really fun ride home with Noni and Popi. Noni sang the "ABC" song for me 2 times. Then Popi started to sing it for me. I kept saying "again" and Popi would sing it another time for me. I don't even know how many times I said "again", but by the time we were almost home I was doing my best to sing along. I got the "g", the "s" and the "z" real good.
Then just for fun I started doing the raspberry noise. When Noni did it back to me I just couldn't keep from giggling. I did it again and she did again, I just giggled and giggled and giggled. When we got home I was following Noni and Popi around doing it and when they did it back to me I giggled some more. One time I giggled so hard I fell back on my butt, but that didn't stop my laughing. It was fun!
I took my shoes and socks off. Popi helped me with my shorts and shirt and I took my diaper off ALL BY MYSELF. Noni seemed so proud of me. Then I ran to the bathroom where Popi was getting my bath water ready. The first time he said "are you ready", I threw my leg up to let him know I was. Bath was fun. Noni put some boats in the tub with me and some more of the characters like I have in my bath at home. I talked to them and Noni made the noises the animals make for me. Popi got me a nice cold cup of water to drink. It tasted really good.
Noni and Popi both helped to get me dressed for bed. Then they took me to the computer where Noni played the "Hamster Dance" for me. That song makes me giggle every time I hear it. She tried to find a good "ABC" song on the computer for me too, but she wasn't having much luck, so she thought I was tired and I should get to bed.
I gave them a big hug and kiss before bed and Noni put Elmo and Tigger in the bed with me. I am going right off to sleep. I've had a big day. A parade, a lawn party, lots and lots of tractors, lots of pretty lights, and so many people to watch and some great country music that made me laugh too. I liked riding around on daddy's shoulders. I could see everything so well. It was a good day!
Goodnight, Mommy and Daddy! I love you!
P.S. Noni says she is going to teach me the "Bushel and Peck" thing, so I can say it for you some day.
