    Happy birthday to this guy! We did think he’d make it to see 11 but he’s just that stubborn. #moses #bestdogsofinstagram #birthdaydog A phone on speaker just rang and the voicemail picked up from somewhere in the back of the house. While I’ve done a thorough check, RR and I didn’t want the last Instagram picture to be about ants #justincase #homealone #thecalliscomingfrominsidethehouse #nowwhatdowedo #itsabigbasement

Being Free-Years-Old

Three-year-old RR’s language is a hoot. The other day we saw some bulldozellers moving dirt.



And since it’s October, we’re seeing lots of pone-kins.



Ls and Rs still elude her. Now that she’s beginning to sound out words we hear things like: yuh-yuh-yoyo or yuh-yuh-yak but better still yuh-yuh-yunch and yuh-yuh-yollypop.



Multi Colored Lollipop Candy


Best of all are the words she comes up with on her own. For most of us, this is a FORT. A castle, a hideaway, a playhouse. But really, a FORT. For RR, it’s a Mystery House.

Mystery House 2


For full effect, here is an annotated version of the Mystery House:


Mystery House 1


1. Kyle is a Nkonde.
2. RR is a tropical nut island.
3. Meemo is her best friend.
4. Ponekin.

  1. Hahaha… tropical nut island. Hilarious.

  2. Punk-in-a-pie. Still my hands down fave and still what we call it.
    Love the term ‘mystery house’. I may have to borrow that one.

  3. Adorable! I can’t wait to hear more of Punky’s vocabulary develop. She’s slowly learning words and ‘mimicking’ and it’s already adorable. I can’t wait until she’s RR’s age!
