October 8

Major milestone: Daphne said her first three syllable word today in perfect clarity: magazine. While Jennie was peeking into the mailbox with Daphne in her arms, the little parrot began repeating everything Mommy said, such as "mail", "bird", "tree", and finally, "magazine". She's such a smart little monkey...

Whether you give Daphne a warm piece of bread or a sip of ice water, she still says, "hot!" Of course, a devilish grin appears when she tells us that something cold is hot. I hope and believe she is simply testing us to see our response.

Daphne graduated from her Zoo class on Wednesday. She learned all about the senses (hearing, seeing, smelling, etc) and got to pet many different animals over her six week course. Jennie does a great job keeping Daphne busy with every type of class available for a tot.

Our house has been for sale now over 6 1/2 weeks. No recent tours, no interest, nothing. I wish this stagnant market would turn around soon. Oh well, I guess we will continue to wait on the perfect offer.

After the first week of the NHL regular season, the Nashville Predators are on pace to win 82 games and lose 0. Hey, with a perfect 2-0 record, we are tied for first place, too!

Until tomorrow,
Dave T.

I loved getting to catch up. I looked last week and didn't have anything to read. Anyway, you would never know that you are proud of that little girl or that she has you wrapped around her little finger. Peas daddy peas!
Would love to see her. Trip to Mayo went well. Mom
