Photo Friday: Edith Ice Skates

If you are friends with Paul on Facebook, you probably saw this photo that he took of Edith when they went ice skating last month. But it didn't *really* happen unless it's on my blog.

Happy Valentine's Day

Today is Valentine's Day, and for the first time in a long time, someone in this house actually cares.

Spoiler alert: It's Edith. She has made a valentine for me and another for daddy, and a few random ones just for good measure. And she has received a couple from our neighbors, so I think that she'll spend this morning making a few more to drop off in  her friends' mailboxes. Craft + outing = Perfect activity. For Edith, at least.

I guess I wasn't exactly truthful in my first sentence. I care about Valentine's Day, but only because Paul usually celebrates by bringing me home a yummy treat. Ask me in 12 hours if the tradition continued.

Mama Edith

Edith is becoming quite maternal.

I've caught her washing Atticus's face with a damp paper towel after supper. Also, wiping his nose. She has named her favorite dolls "Cute Baby" and "Baby Rose." Yesterday she told me she "really want(s) a baby in (her) belly." When she's older, she clarified. Her baby will be named either Rose or Jane.

She's asked once or twice if she could have a baby brother or sister. (No.) The other day, she told me that she wants to be a mom when she grows up, and she wants her name to be Diane. (Already taken.) It will be interesting to see how long this phase lasts.
