We are at that point where we have to pay very close attention to the word that come out of our mouths. Lina is constantly learning new words and I thoroughly enjoy teaching her the really big ones. I love to hear her attempt to say words like hippopotamus and rhinoceros. Yesterday my sister was teaching her to say dramatic and drama queen. But perhaps my favorite word of Lina’s is one that she picked up on her own, delicious. She first said it when I asked how her dinner was, she made it much more comical on Tuesday though.

As you know, I’m a big fan of the 4th of July celebrations, specifically the fireworks portion of the event. Last year Lina was so terrified of the big booms that she bawled her little eyes out. This year I had my fingers crossed for a less terrified child for our neighbors annual party. And then I discovered that we wouldn’t be able to attend the party after all.
|"I did it!"|
For a moment, she thought I was going to let her light her own punk.
She enjoyed the colors of the smoke bombs.
"Lina, say cheese!"
|"Lina, look at me and say cheese."|
|Finally! I got a smile and open eyes!|
Perhaps her most favorite thing was helping Daddy drive the RC car. It was definitely not the semi-loud, tiny finale box.
