Jay: Sadie in Profile
Sadie’s gone crazy with words the past day or so. First, she uses “cool” constantly. We’ve caught her saying “sheesh!” She just said “book” for the first time we’ve noticed. She’s picked back up saying “car,” which she seemed to have dropped when she launched into “no.”
The big thing is “no way!” It’s her favorite new phrase and variant on merely saying no, sometimes used in “I’m being a smart-ass but I’m cute” manner. She used it in conjunction with “go away,” which she has used in the past, ordering her toys to go away, but not commonly or to us. This was “no way!” with a quick pause and then “go away!”
She also informed us today that “bubble” starts with B. Earlier, completely out of context, she spelled out (but did not say) the word cat. That could be sheer coincidence, as she does a lot of “talking” in the form of babbling individual letters. Today she was “reading” a book to Valerie and that was the form it took; babbling letters.
On another note, it appears she may be ready for her first experiences with Play-Doh or modeling clay. Deb started the winter sealing project and Sadie helped her - really, actually did part of the work! - seal around windows with rope caulk, which is essentially modeling clay in stringy form. Eventually she took time out to experiment with the physical properties of the rope caulk, which inspired that observation about Play-Doh, but mostly she helped.
What a good kid. More pictures to follow soon.

Just a quick, preliminary post about Sadie’s (very happy) birthday yesterday. Have to leave for work. I’m also behind on my food posts, like my fried eggplant (Deb: “This is good!” Sadie: “Mmmm.") and lemon fried chicken experiments, which overlaps with the birthday because we tried mainly chicken pad thai (Valerie’s newest “best food ever!") from the new Chinese place. And there was cake. And an ill-fated set of small cupcakes.
This is the cake, $4.99 from Shaw’s in Easton, chocolate with peanut butter frosting and mounds of chocolate frosting with Reese’s Pieces on top:

Jay: It Wouldn’t Be Our Blog Without Sadie and Valerie Pictures
Here’s Sadie from today. She leaned forward into the picture, giving it a different look:
From a week or two ago. Valerie loves bagels with cream cheese:
Please let me know if the pictures don’t display for you. They are hosted at elhide.com, rather than at accidentalverbosity.com (which is where blogblivion.com resides), because there is far more space available there. I have hotlink protection turned on, but with AV and BB granted exceptions. Thus it ought to be fine, unless elhide.com’s server just happens to be down when you see this post.
