Ribbit! Ribbit! I'm a froggie.
Woof! Woof! I'm a doggie.

I am just dazzled by all things Super Hero. I have Superman, Spiderman, the Incredible Hulk pajamas, the Incredibles, Spiderman, Star Wars and Buzz Lightyear action figures. My spiderman doll has suction cups on his hands and he sticks to the window. Cool!!! Daily I ask mom to pin a dishtowel around my shoulders as a cape. On some of the shows I watch on TV they say, "We're here to save the day." That has been one of my favorite phrases.

But my favorite super hero of all is MY DAD!! Our car was stuck in the snow last week and I couldn't contain myself when my dad got in front of the car and PUSHED IT OUT!! He is SO STRONG!!

So the other day, my dad and I had this conversation:

(Looking through a pictorial book of Utah.)
Dad: Eli, Daddy grew up around all these mountains. Look at this one. I've been to the very top of it!

Eli: WOW!!!!!!!! Did you use SUCTION CUPS????

Dad: No, I used my feet.

I am becoming a Real Big Girl. I love necklaces, bracelets and nail polish. I imitate everything my mom does. Down to the way mom holds her fingers during family prayer. I do exercise videos with mom and it won't be long until I am 3 and can go to my own dance classes. Won't mom and Jo-Jo be proud!

Well, I got in the way of a book flying through the air (thanks to Eli) and got this black eye.

Tattling has been a good motivation for me to learn to talk, lately. I said this clear as day, "Eli, close your eyes!!" (during the prayer).

I've been receiving a lot of indoctrination by Noggin and Playhouse Disney. Today was definitely a TV day. Having waffles for breakfast was really cool. But then Mom took us for a walk in the double stroller. BOORRRRRRRING. I let Mom know when I was done & she wouldn't even turn around.

At lunch:

Me: "No I won't try that soup. It's gross!"
Mom: "No more TV until you eat your soup."
Me: "This soup is really good! I love this soup."

Mom took a nap today. Good thing there's a child proof lock on the door or I would probably answer the door every time I hear a knock and get myself kidnapped by some psycho. I like to answer the phone now, too.

The day ended rather badly. I threw a book at Mia and I accidentally hit her in the eye. There was blood and everything. Dad took away all my privileges. I had to go straight to bed for the rest of the night. I don't think I'll ever do that again.

A final quote for the day, "Mom! Dad! I can see our infection in the window!" Oops. I mean reflection.
