2 smart girls & a palooka



So we've almost survived our Michigan and German infestation. We exterminate the last relative from our premises on Sunday morning. Its been fun, but time for them to go! (I sure hope none of my family reads this blog anymore...)

On a serious note, we've discovered the gravity of intelligence in the first 2 of our girls. Jetta, the Palooka, however, we're not so sure about. But then again, she's the equivalent of a teenager, so she's forgiven...

Eowyn: yesterday Eowyn began taking us by the hand and leading us to the kitchen. She takes us to where her favorite food was last placed (popcorn, chocolate, the fish that smile back, etc.), then puts her arms up, our cue to pick her up. Upon being lifted, she points at what she wants. Often, this is accompanied by screaming or other guttural noises...

Eowyn: today, Maren & Kirsten were on their way back from Shreveport, trying to keep Eowyn awake to have a nap when they got home. They were giving her gummy bears. Eowyn took from them with her right, put it into her left, HID her left hand on the other side of her car seat, and said, "Uh-oh", as if she'd dropped her gummy bear...

Baylor: today, I came home from work and started playing with the dogs. Usually, when I try to play with Baylor, Jetta decides its time to rough-house with Baylor too, and Baylor doesn't get any "daddy" play time. So, Baylor got her favorite toy, walked deliberately past Jetta, growled as if to say, "leave my favorite toy alone", which of course got Jetta to grab it. Baylor feigned being mad by barking once at Jetta, and then immediately running over to me, tail wagging...

so, I don't know about Jetta yet, but we've got 2 other highly intelligent little girls...
