I can say Grandma!

Elizabeth & I had quite the exciting trip home to see Mom/Grandma & Daddy/Papi!

After nearly 20 months, Elizabeth said "Grandma!" Yea!!! Here's how it went down Saturday afternoon:

Scene: Grandma & Elizabeth playing with flashcards.
Grandma (holding a card with an umbrella): What's this?
Elizabeth: um-bella
Grandma: If you can say umbrella, then you can say Grandma. Say Grand-ma.
Grandma & Elizabeth go through a few more cards...
Grandma: Say Grand-ma.
Elizabeth: Gam-ma.

Hip hip - Hooray!

On Saturday evening, Elizabeth fell off of her tricycle...into the corner of the china cabinet!!! Her first boo-hoo boo-boo! (Believe it or not, I was washing dishes at the time!) At first, her noggin was indented but it didn't take long for the goose-egg to pop up on her forehead. She is quite the Morton tough girl - she didn't cry that long (for something that had to hurt like the dickens!) I couldn't really get a good picture of the boo-boo until she went to sleep.

Sunday, she was a real treat to all in attendance at Mass. It is the first time since her baptism that she had to be taken out of the church. All I heard when we were outside was "Gam-ma. Gam-ma. Gam-ma." Little stinker.

The tricycle was forgiven and she got back on it later yesterday evening. Cute picture of Elizabeth during her evening ride - despite the boo-boo (which had little/no swelling on Sunday, just bruising and the scab.)

Bonus Update - I have received 2 phone calls today from Nana...E has gone twice in the potty. Any guesses as to what I'll be swinging by Target to get this evening??? Can we say, "unprepared"??? Man, I am never going to get Mother of the Year! How is it that while I am continuously shopping I seem to miss the obvious things??? Don't get me wrong, I don't think we'll be fully potty trained for some time to come...I just wouldn't want her to ask for it and me not to be prepared...

don't worry, this mother of the year had to break out some newborn tights for her daughter to go to mass in since it was like 50 degrees and i have no shoes or socks for her!
