* Joelle mentioned that she would use her H.E.B buddy bucks to buy her sister some diapers.  She’s been so sweet to baby Elise – we’re so proud.  She gives her shaky hugs (special hugs from Joelle, usually rare to receive) and likes to say that Elise is tickling her when Elise accidentally flings out a limb and it touches Joelle.  Chris ended the moment by saying that the picture wasn’t of diapers, rather it was toilet paper.  🙂

* Although the verdict is still out (I have to stop her allergy medicine in a few days to see if in stopping the medicine her symptoms come back), it seems as though our sweet girl is plagued by allergies.  Strange, since neither Chris nor I suffered from allergies until now.  Anyway, she calls her nasonex, “poisonex,” because she hates it so much.  Taking after Grandpa and Chris with the puns, huh?

* While Chris was folding laundry, Joelle said, “You’re extinct with laundry.”  Makes total sense, right?  It’s adorable how Joelle likes to pick up words she’s just heard someone use and try to use it herself.  She needs to work a little on her context clues, but she’s learning!  I had told her a story about how the polar bears would be extinct in the next 30 years and that they’re having to swim too much as it is now. 

* This morning when we woke up, Joelle said, “I had a hard time sleeping in my bed last night.  There were too many stuffed animals.  There was a party in my bed!”
