Rosie had silly inventions on her show today.  Maeve got two napkins and pretended to sew them together.  Then she put them on her face and said she had a "stinky bear mask".  "Stinky bears come over every couple whiles", she said.

Hilde pulled herself up all by herself.† She still isn't getting too far by crawling.† Maybe she will go right to walking, and pretty much skip crawling. She does get very agitated when Maeve runs past her and she canít keep up.

Maeve loves to watch real-life medical shows, and she doesn't have any trouble stomaching it.  Today she saw a cow getting milked.  Jill explained that the milk we drink comes from cows.  Maeve thought that was really gross, but graphic medical procedures don't bother her.

Today Hilde was standing up by holding on to something.  She has also started clapping.

I took Maeve to work with me today when I had to do a little work.  As we walked out of the building when we were done, there was a fire alarm going off somewhere.  I asked Maeve what that noise was and she said that someone was cooking.  Apparently Maeve is too used to having our stove set off the smoke detectors by smoking too much when some food spills.

After we pray for dinner, we sing an "Amen" song.  I usually wave my hands, and Jill claps as part of the song.  Maeve likes to wave her hands too.  Today Hilde waved her hands both times that we went through the song.

Maeve has seen too many Longaberger parties, and Jill is getting too many new baskets.† Maeve has been going around picking up baskets and demonstrating them.† She will show off the liner and the protector.† She also tells her "audience" to smell the basket, because it's new.

We're practicing walking with Hilde.  Hilde will walk using Maeve's shopping cart to support her, just like Maeve did.

Maeve has pretended to be a paramedic treating Jill before.† Today Maeve said that she was a paramedic and that Jill had hurt her arm.† Jill also needed a c-spine collar and backboard.

Wednesday, March 6, 2002
Today Jill took Maeve and Hilde to the library.† Maeve did a puppet show for Hilde, and Hilde loved it.

Tonight we had a couple of Jehovah's Witnesses over for their second visit.† We've never had anyone show up more than once.† Jill had been doing some research on some issues with her bible during the day and Maeve watched.† Tonight Maeve brought her bible and highlighter in and sat on the couch next to Jill.† She started to flip through her bible and pretended to be talking to the Jehovah's Witnesses.
