Conversations with Gianna 2

My dad used to call Danae his pretty rosebud. My mom started calling Gianna the same a few months ago. She would say “Good morning, pretty rosebud!” Gianna barely replies.

Noelle on Danae’s Birthday

When we celebrated Danae’s 8th birthday with their cousins last month, they blessed Danae with a very nice hand-me-down violin and a new flute. The girls were so excited with the gifts!

Whiny Whiny

Last week, my mom bought the girls something from the mall. Of course, not two minutes later, they were already arguing about it. Me: Stop whining and stop fighting about it. Noelle: I waaaaant.
