Mikey is leaving soon. He stayed with us about seven months. Now he's leaving. He'll be leaving on Sunday, March 28th, in the afternoon, just before his 2nd birthday. He's going to Texas to live with his--grandma? Yeah.......sad.......
Our Aunt Caren offered Mikey's dad a home, cooked meals, partially payed-for child care, and more. Sooooooooo, he couldn't say no.
But, of course, I think the saddest part is, Mikey'll remember little to nothing about Jai Jai (Jaime), Weel (Will), Corny (Courtney), An Mizzy (Aunt Missy) sometimes called Annie for short, Utta Beel (Uncle Bill), Annie, and Leetle 'un (Little One, our bird). Oh well, I guess I'll get over it.
I hope everyone remembers to practice Mikey's animals and sounds and things. Mikey learned the sounds of ducks, dogs, cats, snakes, birds, chickens, cows, horses, pigs, sheep, donkeys, and lions. He can recognize elephants, giraffes, sharks, octopuses, fish, turtles, crabs, dolphins, seals, whales, and starfish. When Mom sweeps, he says "Dirty, dirty, dirty", and when he brings us Bibles, or cleans up toys, he says "helpin'". He knows head, nose, teef (teeth), eeurs (ears), hair, hand, foot, toe, sock, shoes, and pants.
Well, I can't tell you of everything, so I'll stop there.
