We had many of the same friends at this party as Greta's, plus a few more that we realized we could easily invite given the setting of our party. Park parties are the best!
Greta loved the games and I think wanted some more! She had a hard time with Therese having a party and getting more gifts. I mean a very, very, very hard time. But tonight Therese even shared her Pinky Pie Pony with Greta, the toy Greta has had the hardest time accepting that Therese now owns.
A few other Therese sayings lately:
She often says she's going to give or share ___________ with Hosea "When he's younger" :-) (meaning, "When he's older" ...really.)
Awhile ago she told me, as I kissed her goodnight, "Have a nice golden sleep mama"
And she went through a phase where if she got an owie she would NOT want to see it at all. I think she's getting over that now (I think Greta went through the same thing...)
Both girls have this made up word "foon doons" right now, and often call Papa by that term...and any other thing they want to! Also, they have taken to calling Matthew "The Big Guy" so much so that other children in the neighbourhood are also calling him that now! Speaking of Matthew, Therese's favourite blanket is the one she inherited from his side of the family. It's light mint green, crocheted, with lots of decorative holes in it. She calls it "my blanket with holes in it that used to be Papa's" and it's her favourite. She's a hot sleeper, I think, and so this airy blanket is the perfect one for snuggling up in without over-heating. Also, she refers to her argyle tights as "Papa's old tights"! :-)
The sisters are good friends, and also quite distinct from each other. Therese is really a little girl now, like Greta--not a baby or a toddler, but a little girl! She loves her long hair (says so a lot lately), chooses her own clothes and does NOT want coats to cover them up, makes up songs often, and is clear that she prefers Therese to "TT"!!!
Happy Birthday sweet Therese Marie!
