We're back from vacation in lovely Sunriver, Oregon.
A pony really did eat the center stone of my ring, which was Brody's birthstone, a sapphire.
New words that Brody has learned on this vacation:
~Hey (eg, "Dada! Dada!" (no response) "HEY Dada!!!")
~Come (eg, "Come here!")
~School (eg, This morning, when I was dressing Brody to go to school (daycare) "No school, mama, no school! Stay!") (reentry into routine after non-stop fun-filled vacation is hard)
~Guy (eg, playing with "guys" who are either army men, ninja turtles, or action figures of any kind)
~Mamadada (eg, when the 3 of us are together, and Brody can't decide quickly enough who to call, talk to, etc, we are the unified "mamadadamamadada")
