by meself!


I can't tell you much about these little pretties because they are for a swap. But tell me, aren't they the sweetest little girls? They are only about 3.5" tall. I made them a few weeks ago and they've just been hanging around, looking sweet as can be.

Alfredo is a nonstop chatterbox these days. And he's saying the funniest things. We're just having the best time. He's exerting a bit of independence and is really starting to want to do everything "by meself!"

When he wants you to do something with him he'll say "No, You!" but when he doesn't want you to do something with him he'll say "No You!" Needless to say, it's a bit confusing.

He's also starting to translate...not just understanding English and Spanish but understanding that they are different. For instance, last night I said a phrase from my long-forgotten high school spanish class... "Hay una mosca in mi sopa!" When Rich said "What?" Alfredo said "There's a bug in Amy's soup!" That's just plain amazing to me.

Glad to know your Spanish can be understood by a native speaker! Several years ago, I met a native French speaker and tried to speak French to her, but my American accent was so strong that she couldn't understand me!

Just saw a children's clothing store called Chittypulga yesterday and thought of you guys!!! Although I don't often think of little ones as "fleas" it's kind of cute. Hope you and your little pulga are well!!!
