one x three
dear hal, i thought you'd be walking by now but your ears have been slowing you down. you don't walk, but you do stand your own little self up and just stand there, like, "what? no big deal." you are a strong and determined almost-toddler.
dear alice, two weeks ago you stopped saying "ed-oh" instead of "yellow" and i am still mourning it, a little. just out nowhere one day, you quit. as if it just occurred to you, you told me, "i say ed-oh instead of yeww... yeww-oww. yewlooll. yellow." and that was that. also? you have the cutest speaking voice i have ever heard come out of a human. everyone remarks on it. it's entirely precious and wonderful and i never ever want to forget it. you are a little lady. you will be three next month.
dear clark, you talk to everyone, everywhere we go. the pharmacist and the boy looking at the playmobil pirate ship you want and the refrigerator delivery people. the neighbors walking their dogs and the other people in line at the grocery store. you do not have a timid bone in your body. you are all about people and action and imagination. you had your half birthday on tuesday and we can see age five way up ahead there, in the distance. let's walk the rest of the way, okay?
just so i remember one little thing about each of them from july of 2011.
