What does the bird say, Hazel?
I waited until I was really confident we could get “thank you” on film. MWA HA HA HA HA
It’s a bit long, but here’s proof that Hazel can actually walk (when she doesn’t want to put down what she’s holding). She came all the way down the hall from her room before I bothered to get up and get the camera, too, so there was more. If you stick around to the very end there’s also proof that she can hear! Turns out she’s probably just ignoring you, so that’s awkward.
a little friend
I dropped my phone under my chair without realizing it, and five minutes later I whined, “I lost my phone. MUUUUUHHHHH.” Nora piped up from across the room, in the most sympathetic tone, “Are you feeling in a bad mood? That’s how I feel when I’m feeling in a bad mood. I know what you’re talkin’ about.”
I recounted this story to Sarah, and I never want to forget what she said. “Lisa. You made a little friend from scratch. That is kind of the most awesome thing.”
I couldn’t agree more.
Pop-pop makes his own fun
Pop-pop spun Hazel around in a bowl for a while at the cabin. Those gentle “whee” noises are the sound of Hazel having an awesome time, trust me.
under the ottoman
I’m not sure if Hazel has to go under the ottoman to rescue her wagon, or if she purposely pushes the wagon under there to have an excuse to follow it.
Happy Presidents’ Day!
A few students from Nora’s class at McGillis were interviewed by a local radio station for Presidents’ Day. They were asked to talk about their favorite presidents, and Nora naturally chose Obama. Luckily, she had some facts at the ready. Listen to her clip here.
Nora experiences her first measurable case of school spirit.
Do your job, 49ers!
Nora’s team didn’t win the superbowl, but her cheerleading is still pretty cute.
