Here's a good picture of Hazel crawling in our sun room. She follows us just about anywhere. I'm not sure when she'll "properly" crawl or walk because this inch worm technique of her's seems to work out just fine for her. Her biggest problem is her turn radius. Sometimes she gets stuck places simply because she can't turn around.

Henry has also been humoring us. I found two things he said this weekend particularly cute. First at the car dealer, while crawling inside a two seater, he said, "where's the kid part?" (the backseat). Second a few nights after a scary thunderstorm we had this conversation:

"Thunderstorms come this night?"

"Nope, there shouldn't be any tonight."

"Where'd they go?"

"The wind blew them away".


"Because other people need rain, I guess."

"What rain do? ... rain make puddles."

"Rain helps things grow and we need rain to clean things."

Lastly, Meg sent me this e-mail yesterday morning about an imaginary friend of Henry's:

A blue dog named Shadow (I named her). She's a small dog who sometimes works at Dunkin' Donuts (ie. the box fort). She likes blocks, taking naps under Hazel's yellow blanket, and dog food. :)

When I got home Henry had switched imaginary friends and was a having a fun time pretending his real friend Griffin was over to play.

In coins -

8,200 quarters turned up one proof quarter (2001S NY), four Canadians, four US nickels and three US pennies. Yeah! Another new proof quarter for me.

2,400 dimes had just one silver Rosie (1957) and three Canadians.

1,760 nickels produced one Buffalo (1930), three Canadians and a Bermuda 5¢.

6,500 pennies rounded up one Indian Head (1907), thirty-two Wheats, forty Canadians, three US dimes and one Euro 2¢. That's my first Indian Head penny of 2011.

1920(2), 1926, 1927, 1930, 1937, 1938, 1944(4), 1944D, 1946(2), 1949, 1950S, 1951S, 1952, 1952D, 1953, 1953D, 1955(2), 1956(2), 1956D(3), 1957D(3), 1958D
