Daphne's vocabulary now features such exciting words as "wow", "woof woof" for dog, "ugg" for hug, "uh oh", and "gross".
Each day, I ask Daphne to hop on the digital bathroom scale and weigh herself
while I get dressed. She anxiously wobbles aboard, peers down at the 21.6 pound read-out, and predictably proclaims, "wow!"
A couple of days ago, Daphne placed a dead fly in my hand. Giving me those innocent "look-Daddy-what-I-found" blue eyes, I thanked her for the generous gift. I pointed to the fly in my palm and said, "gross". Whenever Daphne spots an insect or spider, she shouts, "gross!"
We are doggie-sitting Jennie's parents' dog for a couple of weeks while they are away on business. Daphne enjoys yelling, "woof woof" towards Copper the dog at every opportunity. Feeding time around the Tilson house usually means picking up small bites of food from the carpet, but Copper's snout has been a great vacuum for baby food.
Here are some photos of Daphne after a day full of swimming and fun in the sun:
