A Short One -- Literally!

My last post was a bit long. Yes, yes, it was, so I thought I'd reward you all with a tidier message this time.
Here is our grand daughter, now almost 17 months old. She's speaking in sentences, albeit short ones, but sentences nevertheless, and refers to my husband as Poppy and to me as Kath -- and we both melt. Her favorite word is "again" - usually referring to the Toyota Prius commercial that we have recorded on Tivo for her.
Who needs Fisher Price and expensive toys when you have Tupperware or canned goods?

Just look at her in pigtails. She's changed so much since I last saw her. What a joy. Is that a soup can she's holding?

Oh Kathy, she's adorable! The look on her face is precious, she is so focused on something so serious, clutching her soup can! It cracks me up that she loves the Tytota commercials!
