A Good Day
On Saturday we got to go to the Ducks game and it was a blast. Despite the fact that we didn't get home until 11:30 the girls were awake and enthusiastic the whole time. They liked yelling "OOOOOHHHH" and would bounce up and down when the crowd would cheer after big plays. I'm not sure that they realized that there was a game going on but they did take advantage of being the only kids around and tried to soak up all the attention of the surrounding students. One guy was really proud of himself because he 'taught' Rocky to give a high five. I didn't want to burst his bubble and let him know that she has been doing it for a long time, so instead I let him work with Daisy for a little while. By the end of the game she was saying a version of "Go Ducks" so that was progress.
In other news...Brandon has been working hard on our Halloween costumes. He is the cutest.
And one more thought: This morning I was trying to discourage Rocky from sucking her thumb. She loves to pretend so I said that she should pretend that there is something yucky on her thumb. I hoped that she would pull it out and make a gross face or something.
She just looked at me and said, "That would be fun, but I think it would be more fun if we pretended that I was a baby and then it will be cool if I suck my thumb."
She is definitely winning the battle.
