The other evening, I had just stepped outside to check on Pete. He had been burning some cedar branches he had trimmed off our large tree by the porch. While I was out, I got a call.
When I came back in, Bug told me I had a call. Said she didn't want to get up and lose her place in her book to answer it. I go over and listen to the voice mail. I hear a funny little racket and then I hear: "Mawmaw. I call mawmaw. I call mawmaw. I call mawmaw...." Over and over she said it until the message cut her off.
So, I dialed the number. Candy Girl answered. I told her I had gotten a call from her cell phone. She said she hadn't called. I told her it was Baby Ruth.
Candy Girl put Baby Ruth on the phone. I said "Hi, did you call Mawmaw?" And we talked. I understood enough to know she was baking cookies with mommy for her daddy.
Baby Ruth turned two this month. She talks so big for such a little girl. Here she is all decked out for Easter before Sunday morning service.
