Zellie and I have a language that we speak to each other to Kapaun. The concept probably doesn't make much sense, but it makes sense to us. She will say in a deep voice as if Kapaun is talking, "Oh Mama. I really need to nurse." I always rhyme back to her, "Oh Delly or are you Zellie? Sometimes your feet are smelly especially after you eat jelly." Oh, she laughs and laughs each time.
Zellie is really good at playing for extra long periods of time.
I thought it was just precious how she set all the guys up at tables eating together.
These fellas had a few too many.
These two are buddies. I have groupings of children that play together the majority of the day. Rose and Dominic play together. Zellie and Vianney always play together. Clairvaux and Damaris get in trouble together. Lillie is the floater. In fact, just tonight we went roller skating and sent everyone to bed around 9:45. I went upstairs to check on the crew and these two were playing a game of chess together. Cute...but go to bed. How did the chess board get upstairs without me noticing?
She is still pretty much enamored with Kapaun. She always ask to hold him.
Rose and Lillie are pretty unaware of their appearance. Not Zellie. She copies anything I wear or notices others and what they are wearing. She sheepishly asked last week if I could find her a pair of jeans stating she's always wanted to wear a jeans. Our girls always wear dresses not for any reason beyond we think it is cute and ladylike. I like a great pair of jeans too! Zellie desired a pair of jeans. I found a pair at Target on clearance one night so I bought them for her. She was up when I came home and I pulled her aside and told her that I had a little treat for her. She pulled out the jeans and put them right on and hasn't taken them off since. She often can be found wearing small rubber bands as rings on her fingers.
