    LOL, that’s just priceless! Henry is so cute!

    Speaking of cute, and kids books, when does Mabel’s little book come out from that publishing contest? Cindy and I would love to read it! If there are only a couple copies maybe we could take turns reading it, then shipping it out to another family member to spread it around.

    Jessie, we did get a copy but it turns out I can also easily put the images from the pages of the book directly here on the blog. It’s on my to-do list, so thanks for the reminder.

    I LOVED it yesterday when Henry was interpreting for Ellen.

    He was? I missed that! I’ll have to have someone describe it to me.

    July 4th, 2009, Grandma’s house.
    Ellen in the highchair.
    Henry sitting at the north end of the kitchen table.

    Conversation between the two of them nearly incomprehensible to me, but very entertaining to hear/watch. Then Ellen holds out her hands and Henry says something like, “Want more?” Ellen nods, and *talks*. Henry goes through a litany of possibly desirable foodstuffs:
    “Dis [pointing at potato salad]?”
    [Ellen shakes head.]
    “Dis [pointing at melon]?”
    [Ellen nods head.]
    “Meat?”
    [Ellen shakes head.]
    “Chips [pointing at Doritos]?”
    [Ellen nods vigorously.]

    And more like that. I don’t remember all the foods involved and probably didn’t get them in the right order, but the exchange went on for quite some time. She definitely wanted those chips.
