questions from the goddesses

1. Amy

Q.

Is Pork Loin starting to talk yet? I mean aside from "duice". Does he speak in his own language? Do you understand it although no one else does?

A.

Hmmm, i wouldn't say he is talking, no. he has a few words: juice/"duice", daddy/"gaggee", mama, hi...and more that i don't understand;-) i am thinking he has more words, but we haven't been able to figure them out yet! i have been teaching him sign language for almost 7 months now, and how many signs does he know? 2, if you include waving hello & goodbye. HA! the other is waving him arms for "all done." he will also just push things away or grunt/yell, but i still count it as knowing a sign;-) so much for that!

Thanks for answering my questions. I love hearing them trying to talk. It is the cutest thing in the world!

Spiders? Not my favorite thing. So sorry to hear about your run in with them.

Spiders?! that's so gross! I hope that they don't happen anytime soon!

"All done" is also one of the only signs my daughter has learned, despite a full year of teaching.

I hate spiders, too. And yes, I have spun on the spinner things that have replaced swings at so many playgrounds. Very dizzy-making.

Lizzie stayed out of "my" cabinets in the kitchen after I gave her one of her own. It only has Tupperware in it. She can pull everything out and I don't care - she just has to help me clean it up. When she wanted to explore my cabinets, I would say "No thank you, that's Mommy's. Where is Lizzie's?" and then redirect her to the Tupperware one and she finally figured out it where she could and couldn't play.

And, I agree, spiders are disgusting. What's their purpose on earth??

Your pizza looks amazing! I am making it this week! Ok you are not alone with the spider problems! We have found our fair share of them at our house! We are talking hobo spiders and black widdows, seriously! So nasty! We have traps all over and I spray within an inch of being fumigated out! And oh their season is upon us again! So fun!
