Tea Parties

Heather, Sara Beth, and Pinkie, her stuffed dog, will regularly have tea parties these days.  Fortunately, I have not been around the house at the time.  My skills at playing tea party are non-existent and I would be too busy trying to see how high a tower I could construct using the tea paraphernalia.  Now, granted, that tower wouldn't last more than five seconds.  Sara Beth's demolition skills are almost as noteworthy as her tea party hostess skills.

The cats have started to hang around Sara Beth near meal times.  We have tried to teach Sara Beth to let us know that she is all done eating by waiving her hands in the air, but instead, she will generally signal that she doesn't want to eat anymore by picking up her food and watching it fall to the floor.  In the below picture, you can see Little Bit lick her lips in anticipation.

Sara Beth has gotten more expressive as she grows older.  Now, when I stick my head around a corner and call to her, a impish smile will spread across her face and a twinkle appears in her eye.  She will start to giggle and start crawling towards me in anticipation of me rolling her around and tickling her.  With her hair growing longer by the day, she looks more and more like a little toddler, but most especially I am holding her down on her back and tickling her.

  In addition, she does have a well practiced pensive expression, like below.  I can't tell if she is thinking about the flavor of the melon, or wondering why in the world I am taking pictures at the table instead of eating.

Sara Beth has begun pushing chairs around the tile floor in the kitchen.  The actual kitchen chairs weigh about as much as she does, so she prefers to use the smaller one that is lying around.  She will tootle around, proud as can be.  And if that wasn't cute enough, sometimes she will give her doll a ride in the seat.
