choo-choo trains and her pop…

jasper has an intense imagination and here is an example:  her vitamin bottle “choo-choo train” …  she lines up the bottle end to end for as long as the table (and her daddy) will let her, crows in delight and starts pumping her arm in the classic “choo-choo”!!

to me it is a string of bottles but to her, it is a bona fide train…  well, whatever toots your horn, sugar baby!  (oh, bad play on words definitely intended!)

aw, look at the two of them!  well, three if you count jon tucked in behind jasper 🙂

pop and jasper have a special relationship and i really enjoy watching the two of them interact – he is gentle and takes great care to pay attention to jasper and what does she do?

well, she eats it up, of course!


at play…

more good times at the natchitoches house…

jasper lilith is telling a story – i can’t remember what the story was but doesn’t it look like a good one?

jasper decided to share both her daddy and her “noise-maker”…  we had a great ride down to the pasture and i don’t know who had more fun – me, jon or jasper!

salsa!!! the hot kind!!!

jasper lilith has discovered hot salsa and chips!!  the surprising part isn’t that she liked the hot salsa over the mild but that she liked it on her chips at all…

she typically doesn’t like to dip or scoop but she definitely liked this!

look at that tongue – not willing to miss out of any of it!

she had a system:  she would scoop some hot salsa, eat it, drink a swallow of milk and then a swallow of ginger ale as fast as she could and then start all over with the eating of the hot salsa again…  it was pretty funny…

and woe is the jon who tries to mess with her system for his own amusement!
