Dear Miss Dinah,
Today we went out of town to run a few errands and visit the studio. Sabrina was thrilled to see how much you have grown, and we were excited to see how baby James has changed too! He will be one in January and has already grown quite a bit of hair and a number of teeth, just like you had. The Nutcracker performance is next week, and they are working hard to get all ready. I don't think you will get to go this year (because you would have to quietly sit still for far too long), but maybe the next time they do it (in 2 years).
Before heading home we went to lunch and laughed that your Ginni was as tall as Michael Phelps, famous Olympic swimmer... only the poster starts with his knees at ground level ;-)
When I say, "Ready to cook some din-dins?" and drag your chair into the kitchen, you hustle up.
Cuh, cuh, you say.
Tonight you used your 'kinfe' (mini spatula) to help chop onions.
No, Dinah. No touching those! But, your balls are in that pink basket :-)
I love you,
