On Saturday, Merrilee and mommy went on a lot of errands. They especially liked their visit to Barnes and Noble, where Merrilee bought a bunch of nice books. She bought her books with money that was a gift from Uncle Jim and Aunt Judy. We are very lucky that she loves books. She can entertain herself for hours with books. She likes all kinds of books. Daddy likes the ones that rhyme. He's probably read the phrase "In your house and on your street, how many different feet you meet" at least 200 times. "The Foot Book" is one of Merrilee's favorites. She always has to have a book with her when she's on the potty or in the bath tub.
Now that the good weather is just about here, Merrilee has a good appetite. In just a few minutes, mommy is taking Merrilee on her first official "play date." She's going to meet her friend Sam and Miss Angel at the playground. As Merrilee's cousin Doug likes to say, "That girl eats like eating is her business..."
