A Conversation With Hope

The older (to Hope) and younger (to me) folks have been shoveling a lot of snow around so me and Hope have been hanging out.

Nana!! Glad to see ya, I've been counting my toes. 10 is good right? ...



Oy! with the camera. Am I really that cute? ...



OK, I am that cute ...



But I'm flummoxed. I want to be happy but my gums are killing me! I have 2 teeth now and I think there are more ...



My frozen butterfly! Fabulous idea ...



I don't know if it's working. Plus I'm slumping and I can't get up ...



Listen, is Wonder Pets on? That always helps. They're pets. And they're a wonder ...



Nana, please use the guide. That's Fox News and they make me fill my diaper. Wonder Pets Nana, Wonder Pets! ...



There! Stop right there! It is Wonder Pets! They're so, well - wonderful ...



Hooray! They saved baby squirrel. They really are Wonder Pets! ...



Nana, it wasn't that wonderful. Stop dancing now ...



Here's the thing. Nothing lasts too long with me. I'm mercurial. How about a bottle and a nap? ...



Don't even think of taking this bottle away. I'm not asleep yet ...



Thank You Nana

Dianne said...

martha - we aim to please, glad you smiled, thank you :)

mrs c - thank you, I work at it. Wonder Pets are on the Sprout network which I think is PBS for children. even after Hope fell asleep I kept watching LOL

akelamalu - it is! it is! thanks :)

ron - Hope thinks Uncle Ron is the best!! She loves his comments. I act them out for her, 'da bomb' is a big hit with sound effects

ellen - thanks :)

doc - OMG!! You are the best Dad!! Now I know Ming-Ming is the chick and pilots the thingie and one of them is a turtle but the third one - is it a hamster? a groundhog? I called it a beaver and my son didn't stop laughing for an hour - he's such an ass ;)
oh! and did you see the episode where the Mama Squirrel had a Brooklyn Yenta accent!? that was brilliant!!

jay s - you are welcome!! Hope sends all sorts of hugs right back at you all
you have your own version of Wonder Pets going on :)

Dianne said...

anndi - hi kiddo! I was talking to you on Twitter the other day but I don't know if you saw me

pink dogwood said...

This is hilarious

That's Fox News and they make me fill my diaper

She is just adorable, and so is her Nana :)

Bob-kat said...

Her t-shirt cracked me up. I didn't know Apple had branched out that way :)

What a sweetie!

Dianne said...

cherie - the texture and color of her hair changes so often
she's 7 months old! time just flys by

daryl - Nana bought her that shirt :)
her expressions amaze me
this morning I asked her if she was concerned about the noise from the snow blower and she furrowed her brow
genius I tell you! genius!! ;)

noe noe - thank you!! :)

pink - oh I haven't been called adorable in so long!! thanks :)
Hope sends a big hug

bob-kat - you know Apple, they think they can perfect everything ;)

Mountain Photog said...

Those are great, Dianne! She is growing by leaps and bounds. Such a cutie! And perfect curly hair. :) I love the blurred shot. That pretty much epitomizes a young one on the move, doesn't it? They don't sit still for very long. LOL! So, is everyone done shoveling yet??

Pagan Sphinx said...

Di is grooming a little leftie! ;-)

This post is too cute and funny for words. Hope says it all!

You will get sick of me saying this: she is more beautiful each day.

Bond said...

Wow..Hope is getting so big. And she is adorable..and smart too!

Kerry said...

Ah, The Wonder Pets Save the Baby Squirrel - that's the one at Coney Island, right? ;D

Nessa said...

She is so cute with her big eyes and curly hair.

A New Old Fairy Tale

Hilary said...

Oh geesh she's cute. I want to squiiiish her. And that iPood cracks me up. :)

Stine in Ontario said...

What a smart kid to have already figured out Fox News!

Hope really is a cute kid! I love her eyes!

Scott Oglesby said...

That was adorable Dianne! Like ‘Look Who’s Talking’ but with an incredible vocabulary. Is it wrong that I’m jealous of a frozen butterfly?

Rob Inukshuk said...

Yay, more pics of the adorable Hope, but that shirt? Really?

Jeni said...

Hope, you are just getting prettier and prettier by the picture! Hope your Nana keeps on posting lots more pictures of you too.

Dianne said...

lisa - we're done shoveling as long as none of the mountains we created collapse and as long as the town plows don't come back to make a mess - Oy!!

pagan - I will never tire of hearing how beautiful she is, thanks!!
and I am trying to be a progressive force in her life, she's surrounded by far too many republicans and nitwits - gee that was redundant

bond - thanks!! she's a genius I tell ya, a genius ;)

kerry - yes! they were in Coney Island LOL
I love them as much as she does

nessa - thank you :) I can look into her eyes for hours

hilary - she gives hugs now and when she does I do squish her

stine - she has a good BS meter!! LOL

scott - not wrong at all, I covet her jumpy seat, it looks so comfy
I love to use long and interesting words with her
I make up songs with the words or do exaggerated operatic performances
I just did an homage to Freddie Mercury with the word mercurial and we also learned dramatic and dastardly
she loves music and words
she watches lips when people speak

rob - hey! I gave her that shirt!! and Daryl likes it so it must be fashionable
hope sends hugs even if you don't like her shirt :)

jeni - heaven help you all, I am sure there will be lots more photos

Nishant said...

I want to squiiiish her. And that iPood cracks me up.

Wishing you and your family a Happy Valentine's Day! :))

You have to be patient with Nana, Hope. She doesn't always understand instantly. Thank you for favoring us with your very pretty little smile today.
