Practice Makes Perfect and Other Words that Start with "P"

Cora has been working really hard lately on her "p" sounds.  We're not quite sure what she's trying to say, but she's practicing it very often and mainly when we put her on the changing table.  I lay her on the table and she starts in "Puh" "Puh" "Puh" "Puh" etc.  I don't know what she is wanting to say, but she's about to say "poop".  I sure hope "Poop" isn't her first word.  How embarassing!
In other news, we're headed up to the promised land this weekend for some R&R with my parents.  I probably lied about the R&R part since Geron is going to be very busy setting up their new computer and its many accessories.  Although, he enjoys that kind of stuff, so it may be relaxing for him afterall.  I, on the other hand will be staying far away from the computer room.  Mom has places to go and people to see or I should probably say people to show her grandbaby off to. HA! 
On Friday, we're back to the Smokies to visit with the new Mr. & Mrs. Ben S.  Geron and Ben are going to take in a concert while Rebekah, Cora and I do some shopping or girl stuff of some sort.  And, perhaps after Cora goes to bed we might get in a good game of Hand and Foot????  I'm not sure I've played it since Cora was born, unless we played with Jeff and Holly when they came down.  I can't remember that time too well as I was still on the EXTREMELY strong pain meds from surgery.  (Entirely different story/stories there.)
ANYHOO, this will be Cora's second big trip--the last one was to Ben and Rebekah's wedding.  Hopefully she will do so well on this trip as she did on that one. 
Oh, and while we're in Kentucky, we're going to get Cora's picture made, so I will try to post a new one as soon as I can.  Til Sunday, this is Lydia saying "Blah blah blah........"

Well, that's a good question! How about the kitchen? or the real bath tub? I think I can figure that out by tomorrow afternoon. Love you, Cora.

Who took the pictures?

Eddie Boden. They are really cute--if we still have the proofs the next time we see you, I'll show you what I mean.

BTW, we really enjoyed having Lydia, Geron, and Cora up here. Geron did an absolutely great job setting up this computer. If it were up to me, I'd still be on AOL, pecking away at my old Gateway, squinting to read the screen, playing Minesweeper and Solitaire when I couldn't get on line. Now behold, all things are become new.

As to Cora, we did not hear her cry the entire time she was here, from Thursday morning until Friday morning. She was a delight.

As to Sippy. we miss her so much--any time with her is great. I just wish we had a lot more of it.
