Wordy Wednesday

Sophie knew the mouse made the arrow on the screen move somehow, she just wasn't exactly sure how. I had a friend who once taught a basic computer skills class at a community college, and he said he had older people who really did this same thing with the mouse and couldn't figure out why it wasn't working! I figure that in about 6 months she'll know more about computers than I do now anyway, so I'm okay with her making a few mistakes now. (Oh, and do you see the Playstation 3 that Joseph won in the background? Yes, he is the luckiest dog ever, at least when it comes to raffles at MBA events. He never wins anything else, though, so don't even try to hit him up to buy your next lottery ticket! And the only reason it's not being promptly auctioned off on ebay right now is because it's a BluRay player, and that's just cool!)
I don't know why, I just think Sophie is so cute when she drinks her milk. She absolutely loves milk and can't get enough of that creamy goodness. (Oh and Diana, if you're reading this, I think we left that sippy cup at your house! Oops!)
Joseph and I have this silly ongoing battle over whether Sophie will turn out to be a basketballer (Joseph's preference) or a swimmer (my preference), because of course she needs to decide that right now! She can't just do both as a little girl and enjoy both sports and then when she has to make a decision in junior high because they're played during the same season, she can just pick one then. Oh no, we use things she does right now to prove which way she's leaning, like her absolute obsession with any basketball court and balls. What Joseph fears most is that we'll have a pool in our place in California, and he knows I'm taking Sophie in it every single day, so watch out! She'll be a swimmer yet! Yes, we are certifiably crazy. :)

She's a "carrot top that can barely walk with a sippy cup'a milk". Do you know that country song? that's what came to mind...

Cute, pictures of Sophie! I can't wait to stop buying formula and GET to buy milk. Yeah!

Oh, I think we need an "up-close" picture of the one arriving in July (aka: Your Belly!).

I vote for the swimmer too!! That's an excellent skill to know for the future. Swimmers are so much stronger than basketball players anyhow.

...Sorry Joseph

Loved the whole thing! SO dang cute of her trying the mouse out that way! And I laughed when you said she needed to decide right now (about her sport of preference)! Hee, hee! :) Good job Joseph on winning that....that is WAY cool! Aaron would be so jealous! :)

don't you love how soon you both start jockeying for their future? : ) ty and i have been debating a lot, and the only thing we can agree is we don't want her to be a cheerleader. not that it's bad, but that it isn't a life long skill. music, dance, sports you can participate in the rest of your life. but i've never seen a sign up for women's cheer tue/thurs at the stake center you know?

Becky -- That is so funny! You did leave it at my house!!! It's been sitting on my deak for three weeks just waiting for me to do something to get it back to you. I plan to drop it off at Joseph's parents' house when I'm in WVC next, but I can mail it to you if you prefer. Let me know.
