  • A portion of Melissa's blessing on the food, ".....and thank you for all da people, thank you for the things that break up the street (jackhammers?) and thank you for Melissa dresses and Mommy dresses, and Daddy dresses (??) and Matthew dresses (!?!). Thank you for gran'ma; I gran'ma's sunshine! Thank you for the food....pwease bless it. Annd....[Jonathan interjects, In the name of Jesus Christ, Amen] Amen!" We never know what is going to come out of her mouth next!
  • A ditty composed by Jonathan and sung to the tune "Row, row, row your boat" "Burn, burn, burn the meat! That's what husband does! Hope you like your meat charred black, 'cause that's the way it was." I couldn't stay peeved at him for long. Those would have been good fajitas though.
  • Melissa, when told that Isaac could go downstairs backwards now. "Wow! He's a BIG boy now!"
  • Isaac definitely responds to his name, and to Pumpkin.
  • Isaac likes to hand you things, "Da!" and then he holds out his hand to receive them back. When he gets it back, he grins and repeats. This game is highly entertaining for him to play over and over.
  • Melissa makes up songs all the time now about random things that are important to her. A few days ago Jonathan and I were cracking up over some little song she was singing so earnestly. (Wish I'd remembered to write it down!) She even added a few rhyming words in the mix, just like her heroine Frances.
